A poem, more meant to be a song, that I wrote for everyone who's been bound by people's expectations.

Underneath the surface,

Struggling for breath.

Truths that make you nervous;

Can't shut out the rest.

 

All the lights are fading;

Panic overcomes.

Solutions are evading;

No where left to run...

 

Suffocating...

It's too late to...

save you...

 

Blinded by the darkness of lies,

To hide who you are!

Won't be released,

by the blackness of the world!

The waves keep turning!

Eyes undiscerning!

Stuck in the depths!

Of who you are...

 

Audience applauding;

Pushing you under.

They can't hear you sobbing;

choking on water.

 

Stranded in the ocean;

Water black as coal.

Secrets hiding beneath;

Hope they never know...

 

Heart is bleeding...

It's too late to...

Find you...

 

Blinded by the darkness of lies,

To hide who you are!

Won't be released,

by the blackness of the world!

Evanescence!

Shadows conquest!

Lost in the depths!

Of who you are...

 

Find yourself in me!

Follow your destiny!

Stand up to everyone;

Dare to be different!

Paint over all the skies!

Using your own eyes!

Find your voice in me;

Break out of the dark!

 

Blinded by the darkness of lies,

To hide who you are!

Won't be released,

by the blackness of the world!

Overcoming!

Blood is running!

Embrace the depths!

Of who you are!

 

It's your time now!

Stand up and shout it out!

Light up the depths!

 

...Of who you are...
