my mind...bonded by slavery
with my consent...the straight and narrow road
I once thought I was bent, bent out of
shape but not beyond repair...
I'm not even sure if I care anymore...
I can't be who I know I'm not and I have
been performing so much that my own personality
has no resting place...
there is seemingly no time...
no reason to change as they keep telling me
no matter what I do
times haven't changed, I just read too much
believing that I could touch lives by
being real...
but what is real when there is no feeling
in my back because my backbone is long gone
every since I lost control, the drama just
my words, free on a page but not free
resting in the wings of my vocal cords because
they told me to
take what you have for what it's worth but
if I don't have me,
who am I and who ran away with the image
I wanted to be and
could I identify me if we ever met as
it seems I have been reared in an environment of
trick mirrors...
oh, self, please make yourself clearer
and deliver me past this...Sunday.
