Trapped

I feel it build inside of me

I begin to embrace the rage

Knowing it gives me strength

A way to get out of this cage

My emotions have been trapped

For far too many years

I wore the mask like a pro

Hiding all of my fears

But today begins a new me

One to encompass all I feel

No right or wrong feelings

Only ones that are very real
