Fell down a well awhile ago, Falling into my hell, my slighted ego.
I write this to unfold folly of bold lies
I tell myself to fool myself into believing my bereavement is all in err.
As I breathe in mouth full of tears
Unseen, yet welled inside my shell
Like a turtle isolating itself
From terrible prey in the world.
As I let go, pray tell I'll be okay.
As I fail, wail and flail like a beached whale,
Dying in the same air I breathe in.
All I wish for is a nexus
To recharge my reflection,
Figure out my direction,
Learn my lesson in life
As strife stripes
my face like war paint.
Looking straight with raw sight
At the filth on world's hind side.
On the front of hell's block.
My mind gets shellshocked
As artillery shells rock
My dreams around the clock
Fighting for a well off tomorrow
No more quarrels
As I reach for golden rings
Through well openings
