Sonnet of the Silent Storm

by Chelsea DeFrancisco

As I break free, your power grows stronger
Your trick compares to the calm before storms
Ruling my life; I can't bear much longer
Your force begins surpassing all the norms
Struggling to find who I am meant to be
I can't figure out what it is I feel
My eyes lie, for your control is what I see
I begin to lose sight of all that's real Paralyzing pain. I must always fight
Against the mighty voice that hides inside
With a better tomorrow shining bright
To your rules, I will no longer abide
I refuse to fall victim once again
This time, I'll be the victor in the end.
