This poem describes how I feel sometimes... No hate please.

    1
    I'm running free
    Where all of you can see me
    But inside, inside things aren't all right
    Inside, I feel as though nothing is light
    Inside, I feel like there's no fight...

    You see me, running free
    No boxes, belittlings' or dead ends here
    But where I am, that's not there
    I'm in a box, a box with a roof
    A roof and ceiling, I'm not aloof
    There's hard calls, but no walls
    And that's why...

    You think I, I'm so free
    But I'm in a box, a box with everything
    But the kitchen sink
    In a moment I'll think
    Something I should not
    That makes me feel like I
    Touched something hot...

    Do you see, I'm not free
    I'm in a box with no walls
    A box with a maze of halls
    An ordinary, square shape that
    Is hiding deadly secrets
    Under the welcome mat...

    And I'm not free
    But there's nothing choking me
    And do you see
    What I mean
    What has been, could be?
    Will you choose to understand
    Or lend a helping hand
    Or will you ignore
    And think this is just a bore?

    One moment, free
    The next, not
    This isn't usual
    This isn't turning my mood
    I'm not feeling free
    Remember my words
    When you're in a hole
    Because maybe you'll
    Empathize
    When you're
    In this box
    With no
    Walls
