Because you don't understand.
You don't want to face
Anything that isn't what you believe.
So you lock yourself away
And hide from the world
That you believe is full of hatred.
But in the midst of all that hatred there is a light
And you try to reach for it
But that shadow you hide in
Pulls you away
Into the deepest, worst corners of your mind.
Slowly and surely you lose your sense of reality,
Going crazy from your fear.
