Scream

Screaming and thrashing

That's what all on my thoughts tell me to do

I see darkness without light

There is no end in sight

Scream and Curse

That's all I can do as my world is attacked

I can't stand it but am forced to endure

Lashing out will only make it worse

Scream

It is my only thought

The only thing that keeps me from striking down those who wound me

The World is against me

I am just a scream in the dark

Growing louder and louder

Demanding to be heard

Demanding to be set free
