Torture Chambers

there are shackles made of iron

there are thumbscrews made of steal

they can stretch you on the rack

or they can break you on the wheel

gaze upon your own reflection

and your jailer you will find

we construct our torture chamber

in the dungeon of our mind

 

Form foundations with self doubt

then build upon them with regret

analise the observations

of people you have never met

search the shadows of society

for the people so unkind

then construct your torture chamber

in the dungeon of your mind

 

search your heart for your approval

in your inner strength believe

set a goal and make it happen

have pride in what you achieve

validation gained from others

is the blind leading the blind

like constructing torture chambers

in the dungeon of your mind

 

Break the shackles made of iron

remove the thumbscrews made of steal

stretch your mind for self improvement

and you’r on a different wheel

gaze upon your own reflection

and remember to be kind

to remove the torture chamber

from the dungeon of your mind
