Have you?

Have you ever woken up and decided that there is more waiting for you then the world that we have been presented with?

Have you ever fallen into a pit of despair and had a hand pull you out at the last moment?

Have you ever held a mirror up and found a monster in the reflection?

Have you ever thought your mind would eat you up and swallow you whole if you allowed it to?

Have you ever felt a hunger inside so deep that no food or water could touch it?

Have you ever spoken to the people in your head only to find out later that they are real and can hear you too?

Have you ever wondered why you were born into an age you do not understand?

Have you ever felt homesick for a place you've never been?

Have you ever wondered how much of your own mind is you and how much is everyone else?

I have. Have you?

The Stillness Within

The heart that holds on tight

Like a coil of chains around it

Waiting for the moment to pass

And allow me to breathe again

I was content in my misery

But a breeze came blowing in

Bringing hope on the wind

Ruining my plans of depression

I was happy being lonely

Thinking I would be forever alone

While always in a crowd

Desperate to find home

Home that lets you be yourself

Or takes another look

Beyond the lies you tell to everyone

And sees your truth laid bare

Is it better to tell and risk it all

Then to stay in a prison of my making

Only time can tell in the end

If I shall rise above it all or shatter as I fall

I hold my breath again

Just waiting to see what happens

To the life that should have been

While holding onto the stillness within
