Insane Woman

Cast away in the depths of the shadows
Separate from the society which I had always known
My illness is a mask, not shielding, but condemning me
To an unknown future which is not my own

They whisper and stare and point
As if I am not a person
As if I am not the same as them
As if I am not there
They captured me and locked me in a cage
Behind cold metal bars
I'm paralyzed under their stares

Demons in my mind threaten to escape with each day of my solitude
They say I am lucky, that I am looked after
But I can only feel loneliness, not gratitude

Long ago I was young
And could decide my own destiny
But my mind is clouded now
When I think of my bright past and uncertain future, rage consumes me

Up ahead, all I see is the darkness that threatens to control me
I am tired of the fight
I have resisted for so long
I will give into the darkness of my mind and set myself free
