My Mind Is A Cage

My Mind Is A Cage

A Poem by Jekyll 'n Hyde

I work so hard to get up in the morning.
My mom thinks it's because i'm lazy.
What she doesn't understand is that it drives me crazy.
How I wish it were just that!
But no, depression hits me full force.
And of course,
Everyone seems to disappear when i'm like this.
I can't control it nor can I dismiss the fact that it won't go away.
So what's wrong with me?
I ask you this in dismay.
How can I control something I know nothing about?
I bear this alone, every word full of doubt.
My mind is a cage.
I, myself, full of rage
Can't stand it at this age,
Can't stand it at this stage in my life!
Will someone please tell me what's happening? 
Some nights, I can't even sleep.
And some nights, I just can't keep myself from crying.
My entire existence is relying on medication.
And that thought sends through me a sensation of hatred.
So what's stopping me from taking that final leap?
I'm just too afraid
While the tears cascade
And my mind begins to fade.

That some hard core emo s**t. It's, not the worst but it certainly isn't good. You should smoke some grass and listen to The Clash.
