Let your mind be free,
It is not to be caged like a beast.
Let it be a child,
Even if it gets a little wild.
Let your thoughts fly like a bird.
Your mind is your safe place,
Nothing has to be heard.
Everything is safe in your head.
Feed your mind with self love and self respect.
Wash it down with self awareness,
And a little self reflect.
But be careful not to neglect.
In pain I’m locking my mind within,
No keys to be found.
I’m waiting for someone to break in.
Even when it seems caged,
Even when it seems locked,
I look into the sky…
For sunlight to shine deep inside.
Thousands of feelings inside my little head,
I can’t seem to give it a rest.
It would be a blessing if only I could find,
Someone to help me release these thoughts out of my mind.
I wish my mind was free,
But I bottle everything up.
I want it to be free,
I’m tired of being stuck.
I wish my mind was free.
