Who am I? Am I my Own

Or one to live your own?

Locked inside, kept away

Where is this place I try?


--Try to reach out? In the distance,

--Where I see a glow?

Shut out, shunned from

This world I thought was mine


Keep me safe, keep me warm

Protect me from whomever I can be

I don’t know who I am

But a mere possession instead
