Mind Control

September 28, 2008
By Gigi Sadik, New Providence, NJ

I don't know what I'm doing
I don't know where to go
I am lost and alone
And trying to escape the truth

I hear a voice
So soft and soothing
I tells me don't worry
It will help me

It tells me to kill
It tells me lies
And I believe the lies
The reason to kill

They betrayed me and lied
The ones they call friends and parents
They hurt me and shunned me
When I needed them the most

I am angered and hurt
Full of Hatred and loneliness
Overwhelmed by sadness and hurt
And consumed by my rage

I don't want to kill
But it tells me I have to
I cannot control or fight it
Cause my anger and pain keeps it strong

My happiness and hope
And the things I've dreamt of
Every little bit of it is gone
Now I have nothing

I wish I could go back
To when nothing mattered
But it doesn't let me
And now I lose

I've lost everything
My family and friends
And the sad part is
I lost my will
