21st Century Alice

By: Melody I. S. Peters

Peering through the looking glass

Tumbling down the rabbit hole

Searching for the inner me

The one I can rely on

Schizophrenic thoughts and sounds

Conscious whispering loudly

Images of the haunting past

Motion to do the right thing

Blinders off for open eyes

Ears open for the first time

Attentively waiting for a signal

A sign of where to go, who to be

Finally free of the monotony

Wings unclipped soaring high

Unafraid of falling

But everybody lies
