Hyde And Seek - Poem by chris dawson

Your life is a dream, you’re living a lie
You’ve been here before, but you’ve no idea why
Trapped in a present that’s shaped by your past
The future approaches, then escapes you so fast
You inhabit a world so deep within
Where fancy and truth hold time then begin
Safe and secure, so long you remain
Whilst outside the shell live problems and pain
A momentary lapse will expose you to hurt
So retaining the shield is the way to avert
But you know it’s no good and no way to be
There’s many ways out, they're not easy to see
Yes I know there’s no strength, no resolve of will
To break from the cycle that’s holding you still
Just take the next chance when the window appears
Suppress all the worries and face up the fears
A solitary step through familiar doors
And then once again your life can be yours.
