Static Soul

Falling apart around me

The world has no permanence

It changes constantly

Leaving my static soul in chaos

I seek one thing

Something that remains unaffected

To give me courage to proceed

Barely recognizable

I see myself

Standing in glass

Disbelief consumes my being

I stumble away in fright

This broken world shatters further

For that cannot be me

A realization strikes

While I scream though the tears

This world was never distorted

I was living life in a dream

Understanding now

I live dead and awake
