The air has escaped my lungs
Let me just begin to breathe
I want to say so much
My tongue has no movement
My mouth does not open
These lips stay together and yet
My mind begins to wonder
It wonders into a million thoughts
There's no clarity, no reasoning
I believe this to be true
The way to say these things
Love, truth and compassion
They continually escape from me
I'm consumed with frustration
I bite my lips for any relief
There is none, no forgiveness
I won't give up
These thoughts, these true thoughts
I need to find them
I need to breathe again, I need too
I will find my inner peace
My thoughts will recognize the good
My life will have value
These words will know love
