Silence / The Prison

How can I be optimistic,
When everyday’s the same
A routine repeated over and over
These are the days that define you
Determine your future
You spend these days with the same people
These people are your family and friends
Often times, these are the people helping you get through the long days
I’m grateful for this
But sometimes I’d rather just be alone
In the Soothing Sound of Silence
Time spent reflecting on people and their flaws
Time spent reflecting on personal flaws
On love
On life
On death

My mind is a prison
My thoughts and ideas the prisoners
Trapped inside
Desperately trying to escape
They are kept under lock and key
I dare not let them escape
Dare not let them roam free
Lest they break out

– Solomon Dorsey, The Haverford School, Class of 2018
