Breaking Unbreakable Bars

Yes it's true I choose
To dream an impossible dream
To fight an unbeatable foe
To go back to that valley of sorrow
Where all brave fear and dare not to go

To change,
An unchangable wrong
For Love that burns as a star
To fight when I'm so tired so weary
To break unbreakable bars

For this is my plan to follow that love
No matter how hopeless no matter how hard
To fight for the right things without question or pause
To fight that evil
For love there is no greater cause

Also because I know that
For love to be true
One must quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm at last laid to rest

But for right now, my family
And I hope I dont die
Before this dream comes true
The dream that I don't deny
The dream of being loved by you

So I write about these things
The toughest things
That I ever had to do
Hoping that maybe this last thought
Might get through

What you won't let go of
No one can take from you

So I've decided to speak
Of the worst of the Hells
That I been through
Because in order to stop the abuse
It also meant that I'd lose you

Also I know that your world will be
A better place because of this
Than for the man scorned, covered with horrible scars
For I still fight with courage
To break unbreakable bars

It is for them, My family
I want them to know
The contents of my heart
These are the words that let me show
The expressions, as a form of art

And when I think
Back into the times of abuse
Attempting to understand why
When I remember the violence and sins
Truly, Truly I hear loves spirit cry

So no matter how hopeless
No matter how far
I know the weakness of abuses bars
For it is truth and change,
Love, that burns as a star

So no matter how hopeless
No matter how hard
No matter how weary
No matter how scarred
Love is breaking unbreakable bars

And the truth is
And I wish I could find a better way
That these words could be wrote
To talk to them, tell them about the death grip abuse
Has at our throats

So should I live or should I die
I love you so much
I'm not ever not going to try
I love you so much
I refuse to say good-by

I'll not quit with this dream so close, so true
It's for love
I know unbreakable bars will break into
