The Glass Wall

The light hits the walls around me and reflects
The world that surrounds me, I reject
From this life I am given, I defect
For Me and Myself have never met

I seek solace beneath the ground
In my comforts I also drown
Every thought, it drags me down
Inside me the violence erupts and rebounds

In the darkness I seek peace
In the darkness there is no release
Today the darkness I cannot defeat
Play the song and press repeat

Walls of glass hold no warmth
All I am only haunts
The voices reach inside and taunt
This river of poison I cannot staunch

Alone I sit in my tower
I turn from the world, but do not cower
I know that I have lost my power
The moment everything sweet turned sour

Light hits the glass as strong as steal
Buried within, I cannot feel
This darkness, it is not real
Yet under its weight, again I yield

Night dreams haunt visions of the day
I pray to whomever to give me the strength to stay
I know it won’t always have to be this way
One day when I wake I will be okay

The glass walls will crumble
The words no longer whispered or mumbled
My pride and pain humbled
Upon the ground beneath me, I will not stumble

Between darkness and light I will hover
From neither will I run for cover
In the darkness I won’t have to suffer
And Me and Myself will find one another
