Prison

We’re all along for the ride,
Swaying to the music;
Lost in our heads,
Denying the simple truth we all hide.

Must have came as a surprise –
To know what we can touch doesn’t mean much
But what manifests from a thought means a lot
And the burden is such that we all feel lost.

When we keep waking up alone
In our prison;
Look all around you,
It’s the life you’re living.

When you say that you’re free
But you don’t know who to be.
I must applaud your façade,
Living in chains among all the debris.

A spade’s still a spade
And when the curtain closes
And looks fade,
Will you be ready to know
That everything looks better
When it’s tied up in a bow?

When you wake up
And you wake up alone
In our prison;
Look all around you,
It’s the thoughts you’re thinking,
It’s the air you’re breathing,
It’s the life you’re living.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
