Each day my mind weaves a shroud
And each night it is unraveled
For despite the words I speak
They are lies to delay my duty.
So often it feels as though
It is forbidden to grow
Not by the authority of a Mother
But a self-imposed imprisonment.
As time passes
It is beyond me to recall
On what day, at what time
What moment did I consume those cursed seeds?
Was I freed from the shackles of that cave wall
Only to wander, invisible?
Unknowingly, a ring slipped on my finger
By those devilish, dancing shadows.
