If you could one day
reach far down
into the depths of my soul
You’d see a mind
lost in the cobwebs of the world,
of the past
and the things yet to be
A heart so scared
that it walks fearlessly.
An animal with claws
and a thorn bleeding its leg
A cage, self-made for protection
and a spirit that wants to be free.

If you could notice one day,
If only I let you see.

    and it is the pain tht makes it beautiful, the sorrow that lends light to your words. this is why it is said that a person shouldn't be happy all the time. your words are glorious. :)
