drowning in voices
deafening in fear
the sky is full of choices
i look up and its so clear
the ground springs up
inverts my joy
voices become silent
this suffering i shall endure

this is my life
being swallowed by stares
living somewhere strange
grows too large to bear
claustrophobia in open spaces
anxiety the result
pain the new catalyst
change in life so difficult

i yearn for what was before
tranquility and happiness in turmoil
the water has been still for so long
and now its starting to boil
heat from within can melt a world so cold
thought from within can help change the world
a voice from within can end wars grown old
an action from within makes stories to be told
