I Survive

The shutters to my soul close

Concealing me within

No more will I walk in a world

Full of false promises and hidden agendas

Where pain and disappointment encompass all

I am not like those who inhabit this space

Nor will I become so

Sheltered from the fray, my heart remains true

I had such hopes

Such dreams

That my time had come

A beacon

Shining bright

Piercing the darkness

For all who have lost their way

Guiding kindred spirits home

It is not to be

They who came wore masks

Intending me harm

The destruction of my essence

So now I go

Cloistered again

To wait an eternity

Before I rise once more
