I’ll take all the blame for how I was then,
placing all the blame on the outside
of the walls, locking me inside a fantasy
of the walls, blocking out reality
I built so well around me

How misled by a desperate attempt
at changing the path on which I was set
before I listened to the words
like from a fountain,
glistening with sunlight on every drop
that blinded and drowned out my own thoughts

I’m learning to live with this new found faith
to know any end is one I’ve created
I’m learning to love this darkness inside
that turns up when I take the wrong medication
Now that I know what the mind can be sold
I hold tightly to all that I know
I want to love, I want to be loved
and that’s enough.
