To most people, the art of being comes so easily,
but for me, there is something in me that just won't let me be.
Half of me won't let the other half free.
I am simply unable to express myself to others or disagree.

This feeling hurts me so deeply, it's so intense.
It controls my brain, although I know it makes no sense.
I am not a lifeless being, and I am certainly not dense,
but I fear that you will have these thoughts, and it keeps me from having any kind of experience.

I read and I research and I search for a helping hand,
but the more I cry out to people, the less they understand.
I feel more isolated the more I try to explain it to them,
I feel like a prisoner trapped in my very own land.
So I set goals for myself, and I try to work the puzzle out, I even make promises to myself to do things, I demand.
I don't ask for a life full of luxury, I don't ask for a life that is grand,
I simply ask to get out of this ocean of wavering thoughts,
to return to the safe and comforting sand.

There should be more poems like this in the world...
maybe people would understand us more through poetry.
Poetry is so easy to digest.
