Cognitive Dissonance

Torn betwixt a world I’ve known and a world I am yet to know,
the emotions rush in… intense and suffocating.
hope is lost, consequences I sow, 
devoid of any sense, any kind of understanding…

I am abandoned by the life that I’ve lived, 
betrayed by my own actions, by my own thoughts.
no more insights to impart, no more lessons to give,
I am, but subjugated, in this war that I’ve fought.
