I’m ever so safe, life goes by day by day,
Use to this world beyond the boundaries locked away.
The world is beautiful in ways I can explore,
The chance is open to me, I should grab it, adore.

No, I’ll stay nice and safe behind this shield,
Behind the blanket and beyond the feel.
No, I’ll stay safe behind this wall,
Behind the fear of maybe nothing at all.

I feel so lonely and have so much to give,
I feel so embarrassed, so closed within.
God help me open what I have enclosed,
God please get me out of agoraphobia’s hold.

The time that it hit me I really don’t know,
The chance of mixed company, oh I must go,
Yeah I must go; yeah I must hide,
Yeah I must know and feel nothing inside.

What do I lose by just fighting my pride?
I lose so much more by just staying inside.
I’ll slide and cry, life’s passing me by,
I may as well be a corpse as my soul dies.

It's dark in places and is about real life issues. I also write spiritual and love poems and experiment with poetry writing.
