A Captive of My Mind


A Captive of My Mind


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!
