I’m so paranoid believing
that you’re out to get me,
but my worst enemy
is underneath my skin.

And I live in shadows
even during the daytime
always these voices
bring me nightmares.

I’m suspicious of
my own character
because my actions
are unpredictable.

I don’t trust myself
enough to do right
so I hide behind
my mistakes.
