Inside me

Deep down inside,
You can’t see me
Hiding, trying to be free

Deep down inside,
I am trying to worm out
This happy part of me

Deep down inside
I am trying to get out
Instead of taking flight

Oh no, there I go deeper, darker,
No light in here, it gets so much harder

But I see a pin point, a tiny light, something to fight for
And I wriggle on, trying to be more

With each wiggle, I get stronger
With each wiggle, I get closer

I am going to do it
I am going to come out

Be me and be free, into sunshine and not night.
