My Own Rescue Knight

I hold the key to my own release,
But I keep on letting myself be a captive
The chains of the past tighten itself to my skin
Yet I do not fight it, I do not try to win

While a knife slowly peels off my flesh
I refuse to admit I’m a damsel in distress
It is in pain that I find comfort,
Told myself it is right and not a fault.

There is no one else to blame on this tragedy,
For the one who turned me to a prisoner is me
It is only I that can become my rescuer
My own heart and soul’s defender

There is still hope for a happy ending,
I just need to hold the pen and keep on writing
It’s not too late to turn this all around,
Happiness is just out there waiting to be found
