Inside my mind

I wish I could tell you my aspirations
I've been longing for inspiration
But frankly it's quite hard when you can't even recognize your own reflection
Because in reality I've lost sight
I had myself all figured out
Then I wore my tragedies as shackles
And they chained me down so vigorously
Forcing me to be stronger than before this fight
But i'm mentally drowning in the sea that is my mind
I traveled too far and my complexion was too fright
They can't see inside the depths of my petrifying intellect
Only the medicine can make me feel well again
Mother was too scared to heal the wounds upon my wrists
And father only questioned the bruises appearing on my fists
Maybe I will be okay someday
But until then submerge me in nostrum
So they can't see through my broken entity
And only physically will they see the words that broke me
The cuts that scarred me
And the blood that drained me
That prove that I've lived
