Let Me Go

Please, Daddy,
let me go, let me be,
though the pain I now know
is me maintaining my hold.

I hope, Daddy,
you didn’t want to hurt me;
that it was the voices inside
who wouldn’t let me hide.

Oh, Daddy,
I’d like to think you never knew
how the threats of pain
attacked me again and again.

Please, Daddy,
you have your peace; let me go…
