The girl who doesn't know self defence-2


Self-Exile

Smashed into a wall
Tied, with invisible chains of conscience
Glued to the floor with an altruistic heart
Bounded by my own feelings
Drowned by my incourageous self
Haunted by Home made nightmares
Banished from reason and sense
Exiled-
By my fear to put limits
And inability to protect my soul.
