Let me tell you many lies-
‘I am okay, so damn fine
I don’t need you, I am alright
I am happy, don’t I always smile?’
No, I don’t care but yes I am lying!
Can’t you see my dulled eyes, silently crying?
Can’t you see beneath these walls I am breaking?
Can’t you feel my heart, my hope falling?
So many people around yet I feel like I am losing…
Losing myself in the crowd, in trance, shattering.
Everywhere, all over the place
Trying to adjust in the small space
Trapped, can’t escape this maze
Hurts, can’t breakthrough this haze
Betrayed, can’t recognize any face
Unbalanced, stumbling on my own shoe lace
Confused, lost in so many ways
Exhausted, can’t increase my pace
Defeated, still in daze
Eyes closed, waiting to be done with this phase…
