Finding His Voice

Inside him, he screams
trying to get out
he's lost in his dreams
he can only shout
he cries every night
wishing it would change
he wants to do right
but it's a far range
he cries all alone-
sick of being sad
he wants to go home
before he goes mad
unless he makes a new choice
his life's going to end
he has to find his voice
for him to be unpenned

Wow this is really good.  The meaning is very true and I think a lot of people can feel the same way at some point in their life.
