Self Imprisonment


I can't escape the box of myself

The 4 walls of my body

Has trapped me to my world

Stuck with myself

And only myself

Even out in the world

__I am all alone

Surrounded by people

But somehow separate

Like I've been placed apart

__from ev'rybody

As the world operates

__without me

As everywhere I go

There is nobody with me

Like God has sentenced me

__to a life of solitude

Nothing but doom

But here I am

And I don't like it

I don't like this

I don't like that

Where ever everybody else is

They're just not with me
