The wings of a sigh

What route have I
Who cannot abide
To be trapped inside
My own mind?
Upon what wings can I fly?
Is it the weary sigh
Released by a discontented life?
How long I have tried
How many tears I have cried.
And yet I remain dissatisfied
With being confined:
Stimulus defined.
And yet I have not died
I still yearn to be alive
Still seeking the light.
(Chaos I deride,
Like the meaningless buzzing of flies;
No freedom flies
When one, without purpose decides-)
I'd rather die
Trying to do what is right.
Truth revealed in a flash of insight-
And yet I lag behind
Trying to decide
Something I can't deny;
I struggle to apply
The lessons I find
In order to escape the lies.
And yet I can't believe that I
Will be just cast aside
For Goodness knows, I've tried.

Well done Sir Lucid.
Much pain but your courage counters it.

*Bows to the wister*
Once more I have to contend that eloquence is not my gift!
For that there perfectly captures my situation.
Trapped between pain and courage xD
