How can I escape
The prison of my mind
That has bars made of doubt
And no windows to find
Where I sleep on a bed made of regrets
And I lay my head on a pillow of sorrow
That’s harder than concrete
Yet wicked enough to swallow
All my hopes and dreams
Leave me broken and hollow
With no hope I scream
Only empty thoughts in which I can wallow

I agree with both of you. I agree with Rebecca on this isn't meant to be a song and with carnallace on songs aren't all in a somewhat particular format. This would make a great poem, I love it :).

Songs don't have any particular structure. The majority just tend to lean more toward the standard verse, bridge, chorus, verse, bridge chorus, etc. But there is no set outline for a lyric.

This piece was lovely. The title caught my attention immediately, and really defined the piece.

The rhyming was mostly on-key and your syllables equaled out, which is always important.

The sentiment was highly relatable but personal enough to allow the reader to interpret it themselves.

What type/style of music do you envision with this, if any? I imagined it as a sort of hard rock/indie rhythm, I guess mostly because of its beautifully simple and otherwise short length.

Either way, this was an excellent piece!

This is amazing, but it is not set up to be a song. You usually have a separate verse and chorus.
