- What Matters
my manmade cocoon
I lay, curled within my manmade cocoon,
Shielded from aching with sheer wings,
Guarded from unwanted things.
But detached and lost am I from a world,
That comes packaged in vibrant and dull,
Of plenty and null.
But I hide, clinging to my insides,
Running away from the things in which I can confide.
For no longer can I escape the truth within the lies,
And no longer can I run and not hide.
For today marks the beginning of an age old story,
A cycle that begun that never seems to end.
A life that’s been shun, a never ending trend.
For my sorrow revealed a light,
And my hiding revealed a sight,
So brilliant, captivating this shriveled heart.
Blinding and beautiful from the start,
Reminding, me that…
As I lay curled within my manmade cocoon.
I Am Trapped.
