I'm lost inside this is my personal odyssey on this journey I'm not slaying maidens or sirens I'm trying to slay my demons I feel like Dante while my inferno burns my deadly sins are anger, jealousy, heartache, despair, hopelessness, solitude, and fear these seven turn me into a coward rather than a dark knight I stopped hopelessness with a mustard seed, heartache with a heart full of words that get life through a beat, the reverse of solitude when I get to thinking and talking to people, jealousy stopped when I saw the work people put into their craft, fear destroyed itself and I'm dealing with anger from this voyage not being what I want it to be and despair from past opportunities that turned to dust but I persist because it will get better than this, even a map was once blank finding my way to a new better place will lead to a larger peak and I'll find myself, break the shell and soar
