Lost In My Mind

Lost In My Mind

Lost in my own world
So hungry
So thirsty
Where are the animals?
Where is the water?
Where is the light?
There isn’t one star to guide me
The sky is full of faint lights
To far away to help me find my way
No hope of ever seeing the sun again
It is a world of black
My mind is making me do without
Maybe it wants to kill me
I do not know
I do not care
Let it bring starvation
Let my tongue swell with thirst
I will fight with my last breath
Struggling against my mind
I will not let it win
I cannot let it win
I am stronger than anything my mind can create
It can keep its barren world
It can keep the dry river beds
I will survive despite my mind
I will survive
