Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)


alas, I have found an escape
which opens the infernal gates

I care no longer of the opinion of others
The choice i've made would shame a mother

I dimmed my light, an empty shell
you didn't know me too very well

I fought this battle for many years
holding in the pain and all my fears

you've controled my image, what I have sneered
didn't know who I was, when I looked in the mirror

I live above your influence, cast you aside
the person I am, I won't longer hide

under your wing, I suffered with grief
now I am filled with comfort and relief

I've gained from this, A sense of pride
by letting you see
What remained dormant, on the inside

I've been fighting this battle alone, and I figured out
how to win this war on my own

this has been my little secret
no matter how you would see it

I take big risk but i'm not reckless
I live for a cause, i'm so rebellious

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
