Trapped behind invisible walls
Escape never calls
This self made prison,
I used to feel its protect

Now the source of my deepest self neglect
Inside this box, im to small to move
Self respect,
Im not allowed to choose

Held under with only responsibility
To keep me happy inside
With growth i long to shed old ways,
But a realization arrived

Learned esteem comes from
Helping others gain their pride
Doesnt matter that its trapped me
In a cell that eats me alive

When does living for others
Reach a deadly end
I dont know,
Its outcome is still waiting to impend
