Let Me Breathe

Caged I am,

In these four walls,

I shudder sometimes,

When mother in-law calls.


Broken I am,

In spirit and mind,

When hubby turns and says,

‘Are you crazy? Or blind?’


Shattered I am,

Into a million pieces,

When parents mouth,

‘Don’t worry, it’s just a season!’


Let me breathe,

Set me free,

Like a spirit untamed,

Let me fly.


Let me believe,

I too can be loved,

Treasured and cherished,

Just the way I should.


Let me be,

Please let me breathe,

Before my body is cold,

And wrapped in white,

I lie six feet underneath.
