Yet I smile..

I find myself asking sometimes,

Where did I go wrong?

How did I end up in this labyrinth?

The chaos inside my head sucks all the life out of me.

The world doesn’t help either,

With all its broken promises of freedom, acceptance, empathy and love.

The more I go forward, the more I despise what we have come to.

The dark seems more terrifying than ever,

And those whispers keep getting louder.
