Or haven’t stopped the urge to shout?
Never thinking what others think,
But letting the madness over the brink?
Have ever felt, that you are free-
Free to live, to love and be?
Have you never felt the restraints,
Tying you down, holding you back
Burden you till the wills sag,
Till you stifle the screams of pains?
Running away till you are breathless
Away from the demons you can’t face?
No one to lean on, no one to hold to
Ever lonely in the human zoo,
Claustrophobic in a room of people
Walls close in if you’re alone?
Waiting, waiting, always waiting
For the shackles to give away-
With visions blurring, sanity fading
It’s coming- the end of day!
N.B. There is nothing about me in here. But I was trying to catch the desperation of a trapped mind. Getting into character is one of my better traits. I have shared the first stanza before, this is the full version. Could I get the desperation across?
