Imprisoned Within Paradise

This is a poem/song I wrote a few years ago. I was really bored one day and decided to put  my feelings into words. As a disabled individual I do get really lonely sometimes and I always am trying different things to remedy that problem. However, I feel like I fail in doing so all the time but I should realize that I shouldn’t worry and not try as hard and then I will be happy. If someone wants to put music to this that would be killer. Comment if you are interested in that or give me feedback on my first poem/song.

(refrain) Prison bars all around me inside paradise

I’m a prisoner of my own device

But I have the key, I have the key

 

All around me, people living their dreams

And I’m stopped in place within these bars

I can observe their achievements, while I feel mine has already slipped through the seams

 

I attempt to kick through the bars, but fail

I can’t seem to break out of this jail

 

(refrain) Prison bars all around me inside paradise

I’m a prisoner of my own device

But I have the key, I have the key

 

I keep reminding myself to use the key

But I’m afraid I don’t know how

I’m so used to being me

 

Some one save me from this prison I built around me

For I cannot do it alone

I need to stop being a drone

Please help me understand how to use this stubborn key

(refrain) Prison bars all around me inside paradise

I’m a prisoner of my own device

But I have the key, I have the key

 

(refrain) Prison bars all around me inside paradise

I’m a prisoner of my own device

But I have the key, I have the key

    wow…..this is powerful. I think many people can relate- even if the jail is not a physical one. Sometimes it is lonely even in a room of people. You are brave to share this deep message.
