Thirty-something eyes
Bored Into me
As I stood up
That one time

A boa had wrapped itself around me
I was voiceless
Struggling to breathe
As I was raised
That one time

The world tried to hold me down
With its magnetic pull
As I was lifted
That one time

Fear gripped me
As courage tried to break free
Little by little
As I floated
That one time

Earmarked by one
Won by Another
Seeping into my soul
As I reached up
That one time

I dared to
Step out from the abyss
Into glorious light
That one time
And gained my freedom
