challenge accepted, carl
what is in my head today?
through what broken debris must I crawl
to get at what's inside myself?
to break through these ironclad walls?
that I've built up, surrounding
the hellish existence in my mind
the thoughts of my subconsciousness
the buried lost, to which I'm blind
to all that I hold in, of the light
as of yet unconfrontable
for I'm lost in an endless plight
this maze of dashed memories
that I find myself navigating
leads in circles... it leads nowhere
and proven quite aggravating!
who would have thought: conscious thought
could feel so painful, feel built so huge!
makes me wonder what's trapped within
if this is all just subterfuge
feelings of dread slowly spread
pondering ways in which to enter
the darkest, fractured side of me
that resides within my center
why, you ask, would I dare task
myself with such an exploration?
true enlightenment from within!
how is that for inspiration?
