    Rage echoes thru these walls
    no rest for the weary
    like full court press w/no balls
    when its queit Im leery
    see my house is not a home
    wrongfully disguised as a haven
    threats n verbal abuse plagues my thoughts
    gaspin n choking on hate, no space
    deafening n silent torments
    Im just so far gone
    cause here I dont belong
    so distant from everyone I've known
    What the F is going on
    Stay up 24/7 feelin all alone
    lose myself I did but promised that I wont
    Feel like the black sheep
    No bed, eyes red no sleep
    hard to be in the living room n get peace
    no smiles cause my life is so insane
    To tell my story n unleash got me ashamed
    Numb when they get to yellin once a-gain
    self worth in the negatives but I swear Im tryna gain
    PTSD plus this adds to all the strain n the perils on my brain
    My house is definitely not a home
    Get close n try to take the long scenic route
    Wrong way down a one way
    I have a dream call me Martin luther
    Where I can be peaceful and respected
    drool flowing n Im in a daze
    hoping, workking towards n hungry for better days
    No joke its time to restart cause my house is not a home
    its an asylum driving me crazy, stuck like a gnome

    This is a powerfully emotional piece....very poignant....very descriptive.

    I can feel the sadness and despair but I can also feel/hear the hope, the determination, the fortitude to have better than it's been.

    The bold verses touched me the most.

    "Feel like the black sheep

    Self expression is a marvelous tool when used properly. PROPS!
