Battlefield In My Mind

Battlefield in the mind
negative thoughts fill my head
unsure if they are gut feelings
or unsubstantial lies instead
Wary, worried eyes
watch carefully and realize
all is not as it seems
In a world filled with crushed dreams
and selfish ties
the heart continues to buy
All the ugly lies
to eradicate all hope
leaving those only to cope
Instead of living a life of joy
despair is the ploy
to keep the people enslaved
never to freely reign
