A Captive of My Mind

I,

I am a captive.

A captive of my mind.

A vagabond in pursuit of peace,

A dreamer, confined!


I am a prisoner.

A hostage of my conviction,

That has put chains all over and around me,

Coercing me to embrace these restrictions.


I have a gaping void.

A void devoid of fortitude

To break free from this buried cage,

Forcing me to surrender to this solitude.


And yet I am a visionary,

Whether a phantom or reality,

That is still to be defined.

For right now,

I am held captive.

I am held captive by my own mind!
