Reborn Wings

Living, dying, existing only to die again
Each night I die inside
Each morning I am born again
I will live and die a thousand times
I will speak and write a thousand rhymes
Hoping one day my soul won't be taken by shadows
When ebony night surrounds me
How I long for my soul to be free
Far beneath it lingers
Enclosing my heart in shadowed fingers
Who I am is falling into puddles of black
But my wings, my glittering steel wings
They are still mine
Still carrying me along in this life
But still
I don't know who I am
Am I me?
Or am I the shadows within?
