Cottonwood, Ca United States
Outside I stand.
I see and feel nothing,
except the pain and hatred that lies inside
Trapped and held hostage,
I go nowhere.
Breathing in the same thoughts,
Thoughts i hate.
Where am I, and where can i go?
Sun hidden behind grayish clouds,
No light to guide the way.
Useless and Helpless.
No one but I can be the rescuer.
I will stand.
Stand alone it will be.
Me and only me wins,
and see the signs.
The signs that will guide me back,
Back to life.
