    Misplaced destiny, misinterpreted fears
    Late night cryings, early morning leers

    Noone understands how or why my life made this turn
    Noone wants to see me, so for freedom I daily yearn

    Carelessness of those chose to watch over me
    Causes me to ponder this reality

    Questionable words from this who claim to love me so
    Figuarative claims expressed by those seeking to destroy my soul

    Holding on tight and never let go
    Know that God is there, for He will help you cope

    And just when it seems that all is lost and you're sinking in that dark hole

    Know in your heart and and express with your mouth, that
    "GOD IS IN CONTROL"


    Incarcerated in my mind, vision blurry and obsolete
    Reaching out and always searching for that one to make me complete.

    Lost then found, loosed then bound .... negating to see the good in me

    Lying down in utter dismay only to rise to see another day

    I shiver from the coldness of this cell I"ve placed myself in,

    I sliver from my high place to the lowest valley, in order to place myself in my confort zone

    A place where I don't have to answer to any of my inadequacies

    A place where there is none that I can see,
    Because of things I've been through and
    Because of the things I've seen

    I am on lock down and it seems I can't get released

    For the jail that I have been locked up in, is the jail I've built within me

    self-imposed imprisonment...born out of mental distress...and so many things we profess to be...that should not be.

    YES.

    GOD is in control.

    let the bondage of our inadequacies free us of torment...as we look above for hope...and LOVE.

    let the river flow.
