NIGHTMARES FROM AN UNBLEACHED SOUL

FRAGMENTED

All the labels that you wear
Defines your status but you don’t care
How many were placed on you?
You yoke yourself it’s true
Wearing down your fractured mind
You’re Leaving a piece trail behind

Try to make it all fit tight
Losing it all in an inner fight
Something unattainable, a dream for
Leaves you always wanting more.
Who are you trying to please today?
Why do you forget yourself this way?

Their expectations fracture you
Breaking your soul into two
Then as the years go they want more
It’s less of you that’s for sure
Pieces fragmented off bit by bit
Until you feel you do not fit.

And you don’t fit yourself at last
The construct of you decomposes fast
Holding on to what you dreamed
Does not fit with other’s schemes
Who are you? Why are you here?
These questions just disappear.

Why are you? Why do you care?
You’re living out life’s nightmare
Sometimes getting it in the face
Just to keep you in your place.
The more you blindly follow the throng
You’ll fade away like the end of this song.

Nightmares From An Unbleached Soul

This is a very different AtoZ for me. It’s a risk; it’s a challenge.

Lyrical poetry.  Looking at the nightmares we live, dream, create for ourselves and have thrust upon us. Not all the lyrics will be pretty.  I rarely do pretty. Some will be very, very raw. No apologies.

My heart drips blood while it is on my sleeve.
