Shedding My Chains

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
State? Calm.
Misplaced serenity on my face.
Beads of perspiration on my palm.
Pursued in a chase.

State? Paranoid.
Chased by emotions in my mind.
Showing the feelings I must avoid.
But I feel like I'm running blind.

State? Tired.
I want to give up the act.
The care has expired.
Optimism has packed.

State? Sick!
Revulsion flooding through my veins!
Ignited the candle's wick!
I'm shedding my chains!

Wow, thank you! I actually forgot all about my TeenInk account (until I saw the email that you commented) and haven't even written anything in a long time. I'll start using it again :)
