i want to tell the world

how i really feel

how i think, how i act

but it makes me kneel

to the power above

that i don’t believe in

falling apart

i’m considering leaving.

i want the people to know

what i consider them to be

how i love, how i hate

i just want them to see

so i could tell them the truth

and stop living a lie

and know that i’ll be free

of secrets when i die. 

i want to be able to speak

not with terror or fear

so they can understand what i say

when they all do hear.

but i am confined in a room

with no windows or time

i am confined in a room

where all i can do is rhyme.
