Designed to erode the tower of self
A sand castle of control washed away
All evidence fades
and a man becomes a face

A poster child for what's socially wrong
He falls through the cracks
Plagued by stigma
Scorned by judgemental eyes
He retreats to the comfort of seclusion
A world just outside his mind

"I used to have a life you know
Until the day I found a stone
I packed that stone into a bowl
And well...the rest you know"

Stones. Like chains. The ankles braced.
Lives. Like chalk on blackboards erased
Love. It fades. A demon's in place
A junkies life. Man's worst fate.

the statement that's been made
Your perception shapes what your future creates

~~~~~ A warrior poet rises from the ashes ~~~~~

more please
I want more about the "tower of self". I found the same wanting in "Tests".....Ithought it was succinct and well done but lacking in substance.

You are very talented and I would like to read more substance.
