Trapped

Feeling claustrophobic in this cell The walls are coming down on me Retreating back into my shell I’m not who I used to be I’m suffocating Is it hard to tell? These venom infused words are killing me Chocking me out till I can’t breathe Trying to change the very essence of me Freedom is just a door away But my cell doesn’t have any doors Only a window sealed with bars Feeling trapped and alone The darkness is enveloping me Is this the end of me?

This is a sad and awful feeling. When we are trapped in our own thoughts we can also imagine our way to freedom.

Is it the end... or the beginning of your comprehension of that which you can endure?
