Some writers are so able, and their words just flow with ease
Did you ever feel the world was closing in on you?
Do you ever think that life has let you down?
I’ve felt this way for as long as I remember
Like I’m sinking underwater, about to drown

I know I must snap out of this dark state that I am in
I’ll have to stop before I do some harm
But I feel so helpless and so weak inside me
I just can’t seem to find some peace, some calm

Perhaps if I can get out of this prison where I lie
Maybe then I could get back the life I had
I know that I’m the one who locked the door behind me
Is it only me, or has the world gone mad?

Yet maybe there’s some hope somewhere for me to find
If I just can shed these shackles from my mind
Let the light flow in and clear this dim-lit dungeon I’ve created
And loosen up the manacles that bind

I may have reached a turning point, a glimmer in the dark
I may have found a way to ease my pain
The sun is shining through, my writer’s block is gone
Just when I thought I might go quite insane

Some writers are so able, and their words just flow with ease
I’ve never had that talent, that command
I struggle to compose every single poem and rhyme
It’s like juggling three odd pieces with one hand

But I think the worst is past and I can do it once again
The words are flowing swiftly to the page
I’ll ride this wave of open and free thought that I have now
Until I’m locked again, securely in my cage
