Let Me Be

I am always in fear. Always watching ma back. Always the main target? Living with the doors locked in my own house. Every sentence has a full stop at the end, don?t you. When will it reach an ending? I want my dignity back. I am known to be the braviest creature on the planet earth. I am gonna show you how brave I am. I want to live with no fear, be able to live with my doors unlocked in my own house. I want to be as free as you are. Let me live the way I want to live. Let me go and live my own life the way I want to. I want to live freely without any fear. Unchain me and let me go. Please let me be?
