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
