So Now the Healer Needs Healing

So now the healer needs healing,
And where does she turn?
Who does she turn to?
Her friends are dependent
And her heart's not free.

The only way to go is in.
Turn deep and burrow away,
Hide inside the pain
And be strong outside;
Strong and hard and cold.

But inside, deep within,
Invisible the healer weeps
And looks out through shadowed eyes.
She sees the pain of others
She's now powerless to fight

Because she hides.
Because she was afraid.

I want to break free.
Would someone reach in
And deliver me?
