Self vs Self

One part of self is happy being cooped up
in a box; it feels safer in my comfort zone
though I’m sealed up in a torture chamber,
too afraid to crack the door open,
hiding behind my fears.

One part of self is unhappy with settling for a
wrongful conviction and the inappropriate labels;
I’m fighting to come out of my comfort zone,
the door is slowly opening;
I’m brave enough to face my fears.
