Lost within Myself

Where am I?

I swear that nothing I see seems real

The pain I see in people\'s eyes

And the chaos in which consumes the world.


Have I died and gone to hell?

Because I see my brothers and sisters die

Over greed and money

Over race and creed.


My relationship with the world

Seems so empty

As I hide indoors to hide from the truth

And I  hide to protect others from me.


I see darkness where light once was

Death where life should have been

Laughter turned into sadness

And happiness turned into pain.


Am I the cause of my own damnation

The root of all my trouble

The reason for my clouded thought

And the slayer of my own heart
