Butterfly in a Trap

A Poem

I'm in too deep or do I 

Really want to be in that predicament ?

I've lost myself in all this 


I don't know who 

I am or if I can really take

it anymore....

Can I really be this crazy or 

do I want to be? 

So many unanswered questions 

I look at my world like it's 

my little hiding place 

When in reality it's not....

It's the place I need to hide from 

My weakness is fear and failure 

My mind feels like it's going to 

burst into a million pieces 

I keep it together with all the 

humanity I have left

Little of me...

Being taken from me little by little 

No humanity left but 

there is my soul, my spirit and 

what pride I have left in my path 

It is no longer there 

That beautiful teal 

butterfly is stuck in an immortal 


It can never escape.
