In The Shadows

In the shadows,
I stand there,
Not being perceived,
In the shadows,
Going nowhere,
With nothing achieved.
In the shadows,
I am hushed,
Not making a sound,
In the shadows,
I’m crushed,
Into the ground.
In the shadows,
Of society,
I’m a recluse,
In the shadows,
So silently,
Not letting loose.
In the shadows,
I’m isolated,
Observing all,
In the shadows,
Frustrated,
I begin to fall.
In the shadows,
Deserted,
Feeling ignored,
In the shadows,
Alerted,
And not adored.
In the shadows,
I explore,
Without a voice,
In the shadows,
Forever more,
Without a choice.
In the shadows,
My life,
Has become,
In the shadows,
My life,
Since it begun.

Jack In The Box

Jack In The Box

My names Corey not Jack,
So why am I trapped in this box?
It feels like the clocks have stopped,
And im locked in this hell,
Imprisoned in this cell,
No matter how loud I yell,
I will never get saved,
Still being enslaved,
Defenceless and trapped,
Senseless and strapped,
Unable to adapt,
To this everyday strain,
To this everyday pain,
To this everyday drain,
My life’s starting to decay,
I wish I was a Bird Of Prey,
So I could just fly away,
Everyday I pray,
But I never get assistance,
Helps keeping its distance,
Whats the point in existence,
When you got next to none resistance?
No there’s no point,
All I seem to do in life is disappoint,
Which is making me frustrated and deflated,
God im asking you why am I so hated?
I’m irritated,
I want to get out of this pit,
Its driving me insane,
I want to commit self harm,
I’ve sounded the alarm,
Someone come before I slice below my palm,
With a blade,
This is not a masquerade,
God I feel betrayed,
With this life you have gave me and displayed,
I’m depressed and afraid,
But I know suicide is not the way,
It would be ungrateful to take my life away,
So please just say,
That you are giving back my soul,
Giving back control,
And from now on my life wont be bad at all,
That’s all I desire and require,
As soon as you give that back,
My life will be back on track,
That’s all I ask,
So God please give me the keys,
To free me from this disease,
My life’s tough and rough,
So God please ive suffered enough…..

Victimized

Victimized

No longer do my thoughts need to be subliminal,
I’ve found my voice so it’s time for me to get lyrical,
Your gonna need a miracle cause my presence is more than just physical,
I’m critical,
For all the times you bullied me I’m standing up,
Writing it in a rhyme to finally shut you up,
Your drinking out of a tainted cup,
You drove me crazy on the verge of insanity,
Your just a beast to humanity but now I’m back to normality,
With a new mentality,
I’ve never been so stronger or bigger,
These lyrics I’m creating couldn’t come out of my mind any quicker,
I’ll drive you to liquor,
Cause I’m going to get confined in your mind,
I’m going to be that heading that you have underlined,
And I hope you find,
That I have transferred to you all my fears,
You will be the one depressed and sitting in your tears,
Worse than arrears,
I’m going to be big, you’re going to be nothing,
You must be drunk off that liquor if you think I’m bluffing,
No longer suffering,
I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve like it’s a tattoo,
No longer getting victimized I’ve finally broke though,
I know what to do,
I’m gonna delete you like your a junk email,
So I’ll be free to succeed and prevail,
On a huge scale,
I’ve just got to piece it together like it’s a jigsaw,
Finally focussed, I know what I’m heading for,
The worlds there to explore,
Without dreams it would just be sleep,
So remember that line cause this rhyme was deep,
I’m no longer the black sheep…..
