You Will Be Repaid

I don't know what I am screaming,

But I believe your name is ringing;

In my ears continuously,

What pain I have received.

I have locked up,

And thrown away the key;

And slowly, but surely,

I continue moving forward;

Away from that grip

You once held on my heart.

No more can my past torment me;

Nor will I feel the suffering—

Of the humility, I must now face.

Innocent and naive,

You trapped me with ease.

These walls cave,

and the dam gives into its power.

What pride I have is weak,

As I try now, to rebuild my strength.

One day, you will be repaid.
