As the mask I wear in front of others smiles,
The bleeding child within me cries,
“I’m stuck here, can’t you see?
Trapped in your unfinished story!
Playing the same scenes again and again,
So that you may never forget the pain!
You abandoned me, and left me lonely,
Stranded here, I’m melting into the darkness slowly.
I cry for help, but you never listen to me,
You judge, and berate me, never let me be free.
You have moved on and have grown over the years,
While I never age, and keep feeding on your fears,
So now, not me, but my shadow keeps growing here,
As I prepare and arm it to be your Inner Saboteur!”
