i lost myself

to the spiral of silence,

forced to stitch my mouth up

and kept my thoughts to myself

for the sake of my sanity

’cause i wanted to fight no more

after i gained my independence


is it just me

or the state of our world

is getting worse day by day?

i’m still trying hard

to remain hopeful

but it gets harder everyday


and in the end,

i suppose i can’t fix everything

that is wrong with this world,

this reality,

this hell we’re living in.
