The Confusion of Delusion

The Confusion of Delusion

Incredible sounds , ringing now in my ear
Hopeless confusion , delusional fear

How do I manage , to try and now find
Just how to arrange them , in the process of mind

Humanity speaks , while distorting the facts
Their vague conversation , the way that they act …

Are only illusions , that soon will convey
Their distorted intentions , by the things that they say

It's hard to exist , through this world all alone
And come to imagine , what's on your tombstone

The false innuendos , an elusive remark
That brings the allusion , that feelings embark

The mind starts to spin , as receiving advice
To now start to wonder , if anyone's nice

And why they are staring , and looking at me
As though I am deaf , and refusing to see ...

That their way of thinking , is somehow the way
To release from my prison , by the words that they say

How do I find peace , in this turbulent world
While my mind hears deception , and my thoughts are now furled ?

I must come to terms , that school that I'm in
Is the bitter reminder , this remittance is sin
