Let Me Just Be

You are holding me down
holding me back.
You tell me I have to
but I don’t want to.

I long for freedom.
For the quiet,
the silence.
To be alone with Him.

Peace from the depths
I can only find
hiding from the hustle
from the grind.

Everyone wants something.
They expect everything.
I have nothing left to give.

I am pushing you out
and closing the door.
Leave me be
in the stillness.

Don’t talk to me.
Don’t look at me.
I owe you nothing.

He wants nothing.
I can just be.
