I wrote this tragic piece in the mental hospital, so I have no memory of even writing it. Funny how your mind can still do what the body rejects, despite the heavy doses of drugs they shoved down my throat. Enjoy one of my favorite pieces I still feel applies to me today.

No Escape:

 

Shyness is like a burden

Its like a mockingbird

Trying to sing

But nothing comes out

Like being in a small box

Every sides closed in

Theres nowhere to go.

 

I wish I could be like them

They all think I’m weird

Asking whats wrong

Why cant I answer?

 

Dead on the outside

Lost on the inside

Where to go?

Where to go?

No where.
