Within Me

Talking about life with a friend a couple of weeks ago, about life, about loneliness (self imposed or not), relationships, and also that feeling of helpless anger regarding world politics solely based on the economy and with little to no respect for nature and the human kind itself.
Then, the coronavirus situation takes over… and it becomes almost too easy to draw a parallel.

It’s so late that it’s early morning…
Thoughts flood my troubled mind.
I know I’m here by my own decision,
Peace is what I can’t seem to find.
And I stay…
Still astray.

It’s not my fate to find no destiny…
I have no faith other than in myself.
I know I lose myself alone in thoughts,
But I don’t find company in no one else.
And I stay…
Far and away.

I won’t tread new fields… (for now)
I’m confined to these 4 walls, you see.
Unrevealed, concealed (somehow)
Inside my own prison, within me.

It’s the time to silently plan and act…
For there is much to prepare for.
I know I won’t waste time with anger,
As I feel the urge to enter that stage door.
Unlike today…
I won’t stay .

I won’t tread new fields… (for now)
I’m confined to these 4 walls, you see.
Unrevealed, concealed (somehow)
Inside my own prison, within me.

After the storm goes away…
When reason prevails…

I will tread new fields… (that day)
I’ll break free of these walls, you see.
Revealed, once free (someday)
Outside in the open, as ever within me.
