Lost in the wilderness,
there are creatures
whispering in my ear,
they are mocking me
that I’ll always be stuck here .

Trapped in my own head,
the voices echo
through the trees
like a gust of wind
trying to topple me.

It’s so easy to let them
bring me down when
I hear them tell me
there’s no way out and that
I will always be off course.
