A blank wall before you,
Stare straight ahead,
Seeing nothing that you do,
Fill yourself with dread.

Look off to where they enter,
Don't have the strength to move,
Try to find your center,
Don't have the strength to prove.

You attempt to tell them,
To warn of the impending doom,
Of what they will condemn,
For standing in this room.

But for nothing will they stop,
Because they're all a part of me,
Forced in, no chance to swap,
Never allowed a choice to flee.

I sit here all schizophrenic,
Turning myself inside out,
Each part of me pathogenic,
But you, I cannot go without.
You could easily get away,
Go and set yourself free,
I do not feel it would betray,
The faith you’ve had in me.

But you stay forever faithful,
As you help me live my life,
Our friendship simply fateful,
And never filled with strife.

You take me past the blankness,
Into a bright and colorful earth,
Outside of my fortress,
My life can prove its worth.
