Alive

The boundaries are blurred, so I wait

Observing from a distance,

I consider my fate

 

In time there’s some meaning

I establish my feelings

A calming naivety, au fait

 

As I recoil back within

Escape the prison of my skin

I know that I suffer, but I’m alive

 

There are moments of fear

And flashes of pain

 

Some days last an hour

Some hours last a day

 

In confidence, I cry out and drop the facade

But I fight on regardless
