Mental Me

I have a mind in there somewhere
Lurking in some dark prison cell
Where is the key I crave so I can finally be free
Why do I keep my fear as me
Why do I keep my right mind locked
Remember this though, my fear keeps me from being lost, not mocked, I am locked inside myself. Why do I keep it locked
Why do I desire these horrible things, this fear in me
Why can’t I let this mind of fear just flee
That mind loves, no lusts, to to suffer and scorn
Why is my right mind locked so far away from my despair
I pose my question, should I care? Is it even worth unlocking
Because without my fear I don’t know me
Without my fear I can’t be me
