Boxed In

Inside the box

That they want you in

Feel funny

Not right

You not you

Them not really who they say

They are

Chaos

All around

In this box

Cornered

Scared

Hopeless

You not you

Them not what they say

In this little box

I suffer

I am quiet

Do what they want

It is their show

In this box

Sit still

No movement

Mind constantly going

Closed in

What is to come

In this box

Afraid

Lost

Find a way out

Screaming in this box

Let me out

You not you

Them not who they say

What to do in

This box

Let it be

Not say a word

Silence

Do not Speak

Keep it hush

You not you

Them not who they say

Can I trust me

Can I trust them

This box I

Am in

Will it be

My life

My sanity

This box

Take ownership

All on me

Pain, hurt, brainwashed

Happy pretending

Will I let them get away?

Do they win?

In this box

Alone

Or

Will I fight

Fight to

Get out this

Box

Confined

Struggling

Speaking but not heard

Will be weak no more

Awake

Ready

Scream, fight shout

My way

Out this

Box.

You not you

Them not who they say

This box

Me in it

Will go away.

I say think above it all

I say fuck that box

I survive,

That box can suck it!

Thank you for reading.
