Telling Times

Abandoned are you

Alone with yourself

Your thoughts consume you

Your doubts encourage more doubt

Imprisoned by your own hand

Many will realize

Living with a monster is tough

Tougher when you realize who the monster is

You will learn many things by being alone

First, who you are not

Second, what you truly are

This time alone with frighten many

Because they are the thing they despise the most

Before there was a crowd of people to disguise it

Now you are just alone

And you hate who you are stuck with

You scream to be let out

No longer wanting to spend time with yourself

Run away

See how far you can get

From that monster that consumes you
