Disturbia

 

I sat on my chair and prepare my pen 

Express what I feel to know how and when 

Why I am like this, sitting quietly 

Isolate and escape reality 

 

Grew up as a child living on my fear 

Ignore how they judge me and what I hear 

Gave them a smile every time they are near 

They return a grin? Don’t know, it’s not clear 

 

Trying to escape mistakes from the past 

I would go to dreamland that’s where I last 

No hurt and pain, happiness what I cast 

But the dreams not real so it fade so fast 

 

Every time I hear that they start to laugh 

Cannot face shameful past, I’m not that tough 

Criticisms I face, making this ache 

Humiliation pounds me ‘till I break
