Breathe in, breathe out
One, two, three—
It’s a necessity.
But I beg to disagree—
It’s a luxury.
A straight line delivers the illusion of control – the delusion manifested order could ever be kept in tow,
                                                                      or manipulated reasoning
                                                              could ever take seed and grow
                                                           against the natural ebb and flow.  
If each our mind a garden, work to see it bloom
full of luscious fruit capable of sweetening even the dankest, darkest glooms.
            Savor that sweet, succulent juice as it drips from your lips and cascades
        down
             your
                  chin
To break from the mold, let go of control. To break from the mold, let go of control.

Start from the beginning. ..
From the ins and outs of the shadows
Lurking just underneath
The righteous path you've chosen.

Let it flow through your veins
Direct to your heart
Let it direct you to the darkness
You're trying to hide from.
To become something
You're supposed to be
Rather being someone
You meant to  be.

Tell me about the courage
You've found within the Hopelessness
About the moment
Where you've found the solace in your darkness
The acceptance you've given yourself
About the emotion that made you decide
About not wanting the approval
Of the ones who broke the promise
To love you unconditionally.

Where you broke the chains
Binding you to everything
You've known to know
Exactly what it's like
To be the supporting character
In your own story.

And about the out of  body experience
And the knowledge that
It was you all along
Who held the cards
Just didn't know the play...

The prison felt like the home
Or the home was the prison
You were the key to it all...

Tell me about how you found it
To break free.
I was kinda unsure about this one...but it felt like I needed to share it...this one doesn't have rhymes and proper Verses. ..but still one of the closest to my heart.

Bound by expectations
that I'm never gonna meet
Chained by society
but yet they say I'm free
I swear I'm human
yet the person everyone wants; isn't who I wanna be
Held down by my own limits
but the only one setting them is me
Caged by fate
but I'm the catalyst of my own destiny
Restrained by my mind
but I see what I wanna see
wish it'd just change,
but the only one who can change it is me

Hold my hand, take this walk with me, be my strength on every step i take. We’ll fight every problem that arises, this time it’s not gonna be just
you or me but us.
So, is it too much that I’m asking for?
Don't you hear that cracking?
It's so loud and getting louder
Am I the only one who hears it?
Maybe that's because it's inside of me

Cracking becomes maddening
It's starting to break up
Blood is coming from my wounds
I am falling apart

Still nobody hears it nobody noticed
Pain in my eyes, bruises on my skin
Cuts on my wrists, emptiness behind smile, yet everything is okay

I can try how far I can fly
Climb on the roof and meet the sky
Everything seems so easy so give it a try
Breath, slowly, close your eyes let the darkness take you high

I did what I have to do
I did what you asked for
Now it's my turn to feel gruntled
It's my purpose to break the chains
I can never be completely free
But just for a moment give it a try

Can you hear the cracking?
Chains are falling on the ground
Can you set my soul free? It's right in your hands you were crushing it for too long
You know everything, I know just your name

My invisible self loves the afternoon
The colorful sky, the smell of sea
The feeling of a love coming
A good song
Has dreams
Do not want to have your feet on the ground.
Your head is in the clouds
Falls in love with the darkness
Break free when dancing
Loves fiction
Smells like books
And is happy
And when my skin shivered
Oh,i know
I’m on ecstasy.
I entered on my one
In my invisible self
