My Mind


From a perfectly bright and beautiful day
My mind, somehow, manages to extract
Darkness that goes a hundred miles below

Down it takes me with it
To a place so eerie and confined
You have to grasp for every breath
As if it is trying to teach me a lesson
For each and every day of my childhood
Times that I had put it through
Abuses and apprehensions,
Vulnerability and persecution

Never did it get a moment of piece
Always trying to convert for me
Monstrous screams into laughter indeed
Been hung from a delicate thread
Of uncertainties and withering relationships
Ever since we were a child
