On a Different Trajectory

Feels like emotions are on a Ferris wheel

Like another world revolving in the opposite direction

Everyone spins, within, it feels sick to the core

In the distance they cheer...feels like taunts, I do close my ears

My eyes see through the confusion, my soul pulled in by a force

It is a fierce resistance against all the materialistic lure

Here, freedom denied, but regained only after death

Returning to the depths through the portals if chaos

Camouflaged escapes from a bitter love hate relationship

A beginning of unique upheavals transforms my dreams

Many nights sleep behaves like an enemy I cannot defeat

Retreat, on a different trajectory, touch the horizon on the way

Dodging the unforgiving Sun, this son uproots from reality
