Home Life A State of Mind

A State of Mind


i have come a long way A State of Mind - Voices
to a distant place far far away
from where i used to live
and from what i used to do;

Life is a rosy dream,
happiness and joy aplenty,
everything that i wanted and
everything is as i had hoped for;

Everything is as i had hoped for,
everything is as i had longed for,
everything is except for the turmoil
that plagues me inside every day;

I sleep, i smile, i laugh, i play, i eat and i live
in a constant state of fear,
a fear that i did not ask for,
and one that i did not longed for;

killing me from inside,
silently screaming for it to stop,
i am devoured by my own inner self,
day in and day out;

haunting and taunting me,
time and time again,
they run helter and skelter
in the deep recess of my mind;

it’s just a state of mind,
i tell myself
hoping to erase these thoughts
of fear that hinges on the edge of my happiness;

Trapped inside my own mind,
eclipsed by my fear,
tears weep without a choice
hoping to vanquish (flood) this struggle within;

I can feel you,I really know how it feels. The hardest enemy to fight is ourselves and the greatest battle is not outside but within us.

You have your way with words and was able to capture the emotions.
Keep it up!

everyday i sit and wait
waiting for my prince
but yet he has yet to come
and later i sat and hensed
i got up wipe the dirt of my dress
and listen to the sounds in my head
i dont need a prince
for yet i am my own saver
and yet to this day my prince has not come
but i’ll worry about that later
