Glass Reality

Trapped in a glass box

Where the view is so clear

But I can’t reach the reality

That borders my hemisphere

I push at the walls of my boundaries

I try with all my might

But this box I’ve locked myself in

Doesn’t care what’s wrong or right

So I beat at the sides

And long for the course

I see running along the edges

Of a hopeless dreamer’s remorse

I know what I want

It’s not what I deserve

I’m reaching for empty space

I’m losing all my nerve

The world outside is humbling

Shaking up the rules of my trade

It shifts my boxed-in reality

A reminder of the deal I made.
