Personal Hiding

I keep myself busy with the net
All I feel inside is pain and debt

It’s easy to hide behind this shroud
Every night it bears its ugly head in a nighttime cloud

The evil that surrounds me
Is of my own doing
I hide from myself in a pathetic lunacy

I’ll admit, I’m tired of being alone
I realize that I have forever roamed

So long has it been since I’ve felt content
Since I was a child, I believe I meant

I wonder often “when did I quit playing”
And then I remember, then comes the personal hazing

The funny thing is that children grow up
And what then to the perpetrator, the one at fault

These are memories that I can not change
Would I want to?
They are who I now am and from what I am made

In this lifetime for which I’ve lived
I’ve done more than that which I was given

Now what? I’m lost and what will it cost
What road shall I take next?
Does it really matter for I am a wreck.
