Apathetic Prisoner - Poem by Cooper Gilliland

They say home is where the heart is,
But I'm locked inside a prison of stone
I already know that I am heartless,
So walk away, just leave me alone.

Don't tell me what I want, what I need
When heaven's gates won't open;
Won't show me that my mind is freed,
Because I know my spirit is broken.

So please just walk and run away
Leave me drowning in my misery
As the broken anthem plays
And depressing chords surround me.
