Burn To Be Free

My cares have vanished,
Im not the same,
My soul has been banished,
Into a world of the insane. 

A stricken match to light,
The glow of my inner fire,
The match is the souls fight,
The escape a burning pyre. 

The fire was for illumination,
But instead I got burned.
History causes damnation, 
Of lessons I refused to learn. 

I try to shed light on events,
Escape from a darkened past,
Hastily put up a defence, 
And get burned twice as fast. 

Healing always causes a scar,
Flames of past sear skin…
Once your burned to the charr;
Your freedom will finally begin.
