See just because it happens to you,

Doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt me too,

See, I feel the pain that you feel,

The shame that you feel,

Even the regret and the despise that you feel,

See, I’m a piece of you,

Like your a piece of me,

And all I want,

Is for you to stop suffering,

See, all I want is for you to stop crying,

To stop hurting, to stop dying,

See, I wish I could save you,

But that isn’t my place,

See, it’s up to you from here on out,

What’s its gonna be?

You gonna give up or you gonna win this race?

See, what’s it gonna be,

You gone put on ya brave face,

Lift ya hands up,

And guard the thrown?

Or will you throw your sword down,

And lay defeated on the ground?

A part of me knows,

See, I know your strength,

I know your secrets untold,

See, apart of me knows that there’s a pain inside,

One holding your soul,

See, apart of me knows that you’ve died inside,

Unsure of the road that leads you home,

I see fury inside,

The weakness,

The unsureness,

The needing to be told where to go,

I see the confusion etched across your face,

As your heart unfolds,

I see the hope,

The desire,

The wanting, the wishing, the praying,

That things would go back,

To where they were before the shield covered your sight,

Before you lost hope that you could win this fight,

Before someone told you that things weren’t going to be alright,

See, I want to protect you,

But I know I can’t,

I know the wishing, wanting, and praying,

Won’t change anything unless you let it,

See, I know the strength that you bare,

I know all the things that you’ve carried on your back,

And I know all the things that were brought to you under attack,

But you’ve been resilient since you were a small child,

And although this road feels defeated,

You’re a victor, awaiting the chance to adjust your crown…
