Poetry From The Weakened Soul
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 135
Breaking Out

Been going through some things recently, you know?
And I just need you guys, all of you, to know, I'm out.
Broken free from the wraith and devil inside of me.
People ask me, sometimes, and it's the perfect question:
"How did you do it? How did you get out of there?"

I just stood up, broke the chains,
I stopped the cycle, told them to
Stop acting like they really care.
It wasn't so bad, and I can't lie,
I still feel it inside, the pain, and
A strong, throbbing migraine. But,
I'm not giving up, that's the truth.
Even though, in reality, I still feel
That empty void inside and, a lot
Of the time I have to ask people:
"How does it feel to be happy?"
Well, I guess I'll keep asking,
Because people give me this look,
like what the hell are you talking
About? But, it's kind of funny,
In their eyes I can see it, even
Deeper into their face they know
That they've asked the question
Before. All I can ask my friends, now
Is the question I always despised,
I always hated the question, but
Still I feel the need to ask you all:
"Is there something wrong with you?"
