out of the shadows

in the depths you left me
without a voice
as I lie internally screaming
with nowhere to loose it
my pain became rage
turned inward
I lashed out at myself cruelly
with words that bite & cut
"you're delusional
the doctors are right
you're insane"
all the while
the voices mocked
"look at these quacks
as they sleep walk"
I used to wonder why me
with pleas oh god let them see
the world as it really is
behind the veil
controlled by the powers that be
people have an illusion of freedom
it isn't real
there are entities who pull the strings
humanity their puppets
the spirits utter the words
& the world just sings along
when will they awaken
with the realization
there is no diagnosis
or magic pill
can quiet the voices
they fear  
no medicine is needed
for we are seers
visionary souls
who feel the rhythm of the universe
with poetry running through my veins
I release this energy
into the ether
may it touch others in torment
so they would find peace
in the shadows
they have been forced to reside
