Trap~#poetry #themagicshop

Define your trap, perhaps it sublime

A place where you can handle wasting your time

You smile at loved ones who think you’re quite nice

A charade to fool people that you’re doing alright

Giving in to others and fulfilling their needs

Is a cell that you’ve chosen with no chance to be free

Choices of freedom confront you with lures

But, your pain from stagnation can never be cured

You have made yourself captive with these thoughts that you think

Acts of survival merely get pushed to the brink

Pain will be given in the choices you choose

You’ll just stay on this path with chosen cement shoes

Guess again if you feel free and living your dreams

An occasional smile merely postpones your screams

Suck it in, accept this plight

Your only escape is in dreams that you live for at night
