Glass Prisons

I’d tied me down to a grand mirage
Gotten too attached to a fake visage
But now I see so much clearer
A few dreams I now hold much dearer

I’m bound no more by any bind
I’m free to roam and newly find
It’s as if the walls dissolved
And I see the truth resolved

I’m blind no more to fact
For I have no revenge to exact
And whence I gave up on my rage
I found the door to my cage

And it was then, that I saw
That it was, my own flaw
It was I, who was made of glass
And my prison disappeared, in a flash

My Colours

Grey, I’m just so grey,
My strings have begun to fray,
Can’t feel the sun, nor the rain,
All I feel is mellow pain,

So pull me out,
Of this self doubt,
Was it me or was it her,
Just can’t go back to way we were,

I’m going insane,
Everything’s in vain,
Nothing I do is good enough,
But i gotta keep standing tough,

There’s no way out,
Hear me shout,
I’m still screaming out your name,
Without u nothings the same,

Blue, I’m just so blue,
What do I do, just gimme a clue…

I dream of eating juicy duck
But Sodexo says I’m out of luck

I’d even settle for a cluck
But their recipes I chuck

Can’t even try to go green
Cos even those dishes lack sheen

So I’m stuck at bread
Something I needn’t dread

Finally free

I walk these roads alone
But none of them I own
I keep trying to find
A place to rest my mind

But I can’t seem to find
A heart that’s so kind
As to let me rest a while
Without malice or guile

I just want to remember
My life last December
When I had a simple life
No struggle, no strife

Yet here I am now
Here I am wondering how
I’ll go on this way
In my life I have no say

For whom do I so toil
So far from my own soil
Tell me why oh, tell me why
Did I ever reach for the sky

So reach out and hold
My hand for I am cold
From this winter of despair
Free me from this evil’s lair

Guide me out into the sun
Let me bask and have some fun
The time to repent is gone
The free bird’s song has won

No more whispers no more fears
Don’t have need for my tears
I’m out now, I am free
I’m finally me
