Life had me in a chokehold,
I couldnt breathe.
I felt like I'd been sucker punched,
I was down for the count.
Tried to stand up but couldnt.
I lost heart.
Tried but felt defeated.
I could hear the cheering,
Urging me to get up reach for the rope then I would get a break.
Tried to think positive, to focus.
I had been training for this day
But I seemed to have forgotten what I'd learnt.
I was fighting for freedom, to get a second chance.
To move to new destinations.
Felt chained, my mind and body captured,
Put in bondage.
I try to breathe,
Strategize on how to get out.
I want my freedom, trying to reach out.
I want to be a champion,
Need to get out of this ...
