Talking to Myself Kieland Sease, YAP youth I don’t have the will to fight My self-doubt is stuck in my conscious It’s causing me to fail My emotions are caged in a pool But with no luck of getting to swim I can see it but I can’t feel it Too much trauma for me to bear I am a coward who could be a soldier But I’d rather suffer so I can feel The pain and temptation of evil A wound that cannot heal The devil too mighty for my structures Unless I escape from his clutches of fear Is God real, does he care? I’ve abandoned him too much With the wrong that I’ve done I alone am to blame I let the emulsions of my emotions Gather me with pain, I lead myself to shame This is what my life has come to The signs of God Telling me through myself One reason I am alive To know the point of living To understand what life is about I cannot give up is what I tell myself I want to let go of the pain but I am reminded of what it is Don’t let me lose myself in the process if I forget Forgive me inside of your emotions So I can understand what true failure really is I am not done yet there is much more to be said But that will have to come another day, until we meet again Forgive myself Do not block out the pain for that is wrong The only way to heal yourself Is to understand the man you have become
