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
