Glass House 'R I P'

Shattered and cracked this house is but a shack too much light as it tries to attack the sun burning upon my back No door to enter or even a window in the center no form of escape as the earth starts to quake Millions of pieces flutter all around cutting me deeper as they rest upon the ground With pain I have endured the time is growing near for freedom at last I have found a cure Resting beneath the ground my headstone reads ' I'm Homeward Bound.'
