Maybe one day
My mind can remove the weeds of corruption that has been planted in her garden by you
Maybe one day
My mind can escape the maze of lies that is adorned with white roses* at every corner
Maybe one day
My mind will be able to conquer the ferocious symphony the ocean composes in order to order to try to halt me from crossing

Maybe one day soon
My body won’t recoil when he moves his hand too fast upwards
Maybe one day soon
My face will learn how to genuinely smile again
Maybe one day soon
My eyes will be able to gaze into the mirror and understand why he looks at me like I’m the most beautiful girl he has ever lied eyes on

Maybe today’s the day
I run the fingers over the walls that you built and start to dissemble the bricks
Maybe today’s the day
I excavate the weeds that accumulated over the years
Maybe today’s the day
I acquire the strength to reclaim my life that you cheated me out of
