Prison Within

This piece is just ventilation; just in case I get depressed and this {indicate head} don't wanna work no more.  After all the work I've done before I don't know if I've got the tools to repair it no more.  Hell, was it ever repaired before?  It wasn't a physical pain, but I do feel sore, and even though it wasn't a physical door I still feel locked away from the me before.  These are the only bars I have in store; you see, even prison bars don't work no more.

          Just imagine with me being locked away yet within your own body.  The only thing you've ever owned unequivocally.  This thing you know so intimately has now become your penitentiaryÖ unintentionally, but isn't it your faultÖ potentially?

          Had I had the same mentioned to me it would have caused so much tension in me that I would have a new NME (enemy)Ö and it did.  I was just too blind to see it.  I guess some parts of me didn't want to believe it and I just haven't had time to grieve yet.  Still, through all the upset; I may be down now, but I'm not out yet.  Success is still my mindset, create my own safety net and when I reach the top I'll have my respect, using only myself to get it.  Don't you get it?  I tried to be clear when I said it; made it legible just in case you read it.  I'm dying inside, but I'm not dead yet.  I can't accept defeat as a logical step.  If I do, I'll regret all that this piece has said and become a prisoner in my own head.
