Screaming in a sound proof booth
My voice ringing loudly, yet mute
No one hears me; my cries trapped in a cage
Bellowing from my soul; trying to release this rage
But as a tree falling in the forest that no one hears
I’m shouting at the top of my lungs but crying silent tears
Not one can hear, not one can see
Because this encasing still resembles me
But it muffles the quiet longings of my spirit
Drowns out my thunderous cry and no one hears it
I desperately want relief; to unleash this suffocating sorrow
But the haze has me blinded; I can’t see tomorrow
I’m stuck in this moment of paralyzing nothingness
Hoping that someone will save me from this mess
I pray God where are you? Why can’t I feel you?
No response. Dead silence. What am I to do?
I know I should be still and wait for His word
But in my kicking and screaming; I just want to be heard
Like a child seeking his parent's attention
I just really need my daddy to listen
To give me an answer, Lord show me a sign
Tell me what to do; please ease my troubled mind
I surrender my all in my lamentation
I beg for release; plead for liberation
These walls closing in but I’m planning my escape
I’m no longer afraid; I know what it’s going to take
So I leap…
