BUT STILL A PARADISE

BUT STILL A PARADISE

Towards the end of a part of my life, 

My paradise, what I thought was once an escape,

Because of an inferno, my paranoia manifested, 

I gave up on finding a way out, 

I believed there was none, 

Content in my own misery, 

The people around me are superficial, 

Swimming in their scores, ignorant, 

Seeing glory in the same dim light, 

When they feel that wave, they rush to ride it,

But I let it wash over, knowing that it will subside,

This paradise doesn’t last forever, 

I am the person I thought I would be never, 

I feel dead inside since whenever,

If you asked me, I’d say I can’t remember.

The end of the day feels like the end of the line,

Others look at it like the sunrise, 

I break down into tears, it is that time of day again,

This is a strange paradise,

With a sky the colour of hell-fire, 

Magnificent as the Sun & Beautiful as the Moon,

But still a paradise.
