A painting incomplete

Good battles bad and my chest it lacks of air
And I’m slipping on my own steps thinking I must dare.
Pay attention you’re the watcher quotes a voice inside the haze;
How will you find escape trapped inside this maze?
       I know that I’ve been loyal ask them they all know;
       I know I’ve make mistakes and I guess it maybe shows.
       But am I to change the colors painted on the page?
       That’s pretty hard to do when you’re swinging from a cage. 
I’ve looked for combinations picked with pins and nails;
But wouldn’t bow to false hoods designed to make me frail.
I’ve swam the rivers of confusion clung to desperate lines of hope;
But God will never let me stop and tells me I must cope.

    God...Leo...this took my breath away. Its brilliant. And touching. I can't pick a favorite kind because you've pieced it all together perfectly. Thank you for sharing. (PS you didn't tell me if it's cool if I call you Leo)
