Suffocated with all this pressure,

Yet they say “just go on and venture”.
Trapped within these four walls,

Nobody hears my heart calls.
Come back home, yearning for some ease,

And all I get is everything but peace.
This shadow is casted throughout the week,

And all I feel is nothing but weak.
Lonely and lost,

My heart turns to frost.
But what can I say?

well, all my emotions are still at bay.
How long before I break down?

Maybe never as I’m sadness bound.
