Break these chains
There is no way
At this point that I can see
Or anytime soon
That I keep blaming you
Reminders here and there
Unable to soothe​ my anxiety
My independence is sometimes
a threat to others
The strengh they see in me
An amazing accomplishment
Of the courage it took to become free
Now unable to allow anyone else
To love me
To care for me
Or to take care of me
Any better than I could myself
