Shackles of the Mind

I'm shackled to the wall
Locked in a place compared to a square cell
But freed inside a prison
Watching my world, as it all began to fall

I'm a prisoner to myself
Fighting back the feelings and thoughts
Hoping to feel nothing
But my emotions restrained me from me

I seem released, just to be cuffed back to the cell in my head
I walked straight, but dizzy in my mind
I fought against the evil monsters in my thoughts
And the bad world, that masked itself kindly

I'm a prisoner again
To much more than myself
Although I broke free from my grasps
I'm a prisoner to life
