I want to walk around,to see this beautiful world
I dont want to walk,to see these hypocrites,pretenders.
I want to sit and be lonely to preoccupy with my own fantasies
I dont want to be lonely because I am scared with these unknown sounds.
I want to talk to someone,a good listener with a good heart
I dont want to talk,prefer self talk, more pleasurable
I dont want to live in these extremes…but
How can I live when people are pulling my legs into extremes.
I dont want to live in fantasy…but
How can I live in reality,when they ask me
“what is wrong with you?’
I want to be normal…but
What is normalcy?
For my mom…..’be an earning member’
For my doctor….no more symptoms…SYMPTOM FREE
For you…….”no more threatening’
For me…getting my life back…
Show me the path of normalcy
The middle way….Let me walk.
Please Hold me tight….I am scared
‘THIS WINTER IS ICY COLD’
