Mental Prisoner…

Am I in the way?
Are these feelings reality?
Is this energy manifested or manufactured?
How do I know?

Ways of the idle mind that wants but isn’t sure
Finding solace is discomfort
Searching the feeling to be secure
Why am I so far in my head?

The battle is never over
The journey has no final step
Wrestling with the desire to win
With vision as clear as a starless sky

Do I want it all…or just enough?
Go at it alone…cause recruiting is tough?
Any option but give in or give up
Cause life can’t be boring…and rough

Trapped within my own thoughts
Empowered and Pummeled by the same mind
Sitting still, oddly calm
Hoping I have wasted too much time
