Dear lonely Castle

Dear lonely Castle,
Be not afraid of the dark
For the day shall come
When the blues fill the skies and not your mind.
  You’ve been sitting in the room
Dripped in the blood of venom
Shed by the angels and demons
That won’t let you sleep…
  But be not afraid of the screams
For someone must be sacrificed
For you to be alive
For how long can you just survive?
  Don’t build a high fence
To your already fortified heart
It must be shattered into pieces
Before it learns to fly!!!
  Be not afraid to be broken
For the Castle you are
Has no windows that could
Lend you some light and air to breathe!
    Brick by Brick, it will ache
But that is what will set you free
The soul that lost its fire
Will ignite with perpetual fantasy.
  Be not deceived
For God is just a lie
Or maybe he has died
In this world full of cries.
  But you my dear,
Are still alive
And you must make it
Through the time of dire.
  They know you well
But they don’t understand you
Don’t take the cock and bull stories
They try feeding you
  Whence you come from
Was never your choice
Whence you go
You Decide!

I don’t think that we can define ourselves in just words, and that is possibly what differentiates us from mere things. We, as beings, are, on one hand much beyond the things we are surrounded by, and on the other, merely nothing in this infinite universe that we’re a part of.
