The Veil Was Lifted

The veil was lifted
Reality struck
I was stuck in a dream world
It was a survival instinct
A coping mechanism
And now I’m ready to tear down the walls
I built to protect myself from harm
I have to truly see
The environment that surrounds me
And I’ll now get to choose
What I need to walk away from for good
And slowly build the life I need
With the tools life has given me
And safety will be my main priority
