Painting by Maxwell Dickson
reaching outside of my internal elements
to be a better me.
Scars of tragedy
are hidden deep in my heart’s cavity.
Buried by stress and depression,
a smile from me is a rare expression.
Mind always racing with thoughts
My emotions have me tied in knots
is not so easily
Submerged in my feelings,
Many are unknown of my pain,
pacing in life’s daily routine to maintain.
Reminisce of the past,
are dark nightmares that harassed.
Breaking free is not so easily.
