by, Cassandra

I can't stand this silence, this stillness
that's dragging me back to the ground.

I don't want this cage made up of fears;
limitations and boundaries created by tears.

Shut up, sit down, stop screaming out.
I'm here; I'm fine. I'm beautifully divine.

You'll never cage me with these fears.
I'll never be limited by these tears.

I'm here.
I'm fine.
I'm beautiful.

(mirror mirror on the wall;
who's the one lying now?
