Chosen Confusion

I broke the surface so I can breathe

I close my eyes so I can see

I chain my hands to be free

I plant seeds, but there are no trees

I burn a fire to keep cool

I burn myself, pain is the fuel

I never meant to be cruel

I serve nobody, who is the fool?

Not breathing

Not moving

No coming back

No hinge intact

Shut the door, so I can leave

Contradictions, can’t you see?

I’m whole yet broken,

Others look on, words unspoken

He shut the door wide open
