Mental Imprisonment - Poem by Prince KnightenRodgers

Why do what I do why do
what I did trapped in
my own mind I must admit
miss understood I guess
I try and try and yet I
havent done a thing
I move this way and that
yet im still in the same
place in a mindset ive yet
to understand and as of now
I dont even know where I stand
trapped in this prison built
by my own fears founded upon my
regrets shelterd by my failures
and bars by my insecurity and
lack of self disapline my bed is
made of discomfort and relentless
rejection of the past with a window
which leads out to failure and false
couldve been shouldve been but isnt
dreams they look back at me in shame
and disrespect for the lack of standerds
I shoulde have set for the goal
I should have met on these chain I tend
to fret doesnt matter till I yet search
my soul for who I am and where I belong
two of my room mates left and right one
wants money one wants light one on each
shoulder weighing me down yelling and
screamin pulling and tugging I dnt know
which way to go their about to tair me
in two im so confused I dont know who
to chose this prison life is hell but
acording to right its no compare im torn
between two worlds I dont know how long I
can last the pain is unbearable the frustration
is killing me but time is waisting its
now or never I must make a choice but should
I dare to chose the wrong one
