How Many Times?

Lonely woman drinking and thinking

How many times does she
have to sacrifice her dreams
To be held back
when just on the cusp
Of something great
and something so new

So close she was that
she could almost touch it
Grasp it whole
embrace it in her arms
Then fickle fate stepped in
taken, stolen yet again

Trapped now worse than before
in a hell she’s tried to escape
This prison will hold her
tight and secure
Harder will it be
to free herself forever more…

She has her dream still
and she shall fight harder
Harder than ever before
she’ll sacrifice much
To free herself to the light
that she’s been long searching for…
