Escape Hatch

I came to you in good faith

The dawn of new begins

With the fire of aspiration

You opened your doors welcomingly

But I missed the sign over it

Abandon hope all ye who enter here

These long years have been a toll

On my weary mind

Bricks and mortar

You’re bad through and through

Places are haunted; you’re diseased

I won’t do it anymore

I won’t bow to your ideas your ideals

I won’t lie down and die

Imprisoned I may seem

But you won’t break me

I will find my escape hatch
