Little Girl in a Cage

I hid this little girl in a cage to keep her safe

Safe from all the monsters that’s inside of me

These monsters were named depression and anxiety

I don’t want these monsters to scare off this little girl who has so much joy, so much love, and so much hope

So I hid her in a cage to protect her, to keep her safe

Safe from all the people that may just hurt her

I don’t want these people to leave a dent in her heart with sadness, disappointment, and anger

I told her to hide, to always keep a distance I told her to always keep her walls up

I told her to not give her all to anyone

Now I am looking at this little girl, she is all alone. She’s not the same little girl anymore… because now she is scared all the time.

She doesn’t know how to be happy nor how to love fully…

I’m sorry…

I should’ve let you be…

Let you be sad

Let you be disappointed 

Let you be angry

Let you be hurt

Let you give your all to someone.

I hope it’s not too late, but I am setting you free. Please allow yourself to be free… There are still monsters. There are still people who can hurt you. 

But I want you to live, to feel, and to love.
