Emotional Prison

Souls destroyed by emotions
Emotions controlled by evil
You see them suffering in slow motion
They need reasons to love you
They are under hypnotic poison
So, they never realized they drank the potion
They want to be peaceful
But their mind is full of explosives
Abusive affirmations
Positivity limitations
You try but the communication fails
You try and you almost lose yourself in doing so
You try to once again make them glow
The dark vibe is contagious, you will never grow
You can go with the flow or go super slow
You will not free them though
It is a mental prison and until they’re ready they won’t let go
You can support and encourage them
But you cannot free them from a world they created themselves

My name is Glory Castillo. I have been writing poetry since a very young age. Being an only child, I needed to find a way to process pain alone. I believe poetry is a form of art, expression and therapy. It helps me cope and it also makes me happy when other people can relate to it. Being in the health care field, gives me a better understanding of how important it is to let your mind relax and your thoughts flow. Poetry is my therapy.
