My Mind


How could I ever lose my mind when it seems like I live inside of it
Sometimes I think I need to get out and join the real world
But it seems like every time I do another fire is lit
Everything around me is seems too close and too loud
I feel like my body is wrapped in sandpaper
I feel like screaming and I need to get out
So I retreat back inside my head
And spend hours fighting the off the guilt
Because I can’t be what I want for my family and friends

    why conform to the views of others? free your mind and those around you will learn to conform to you. if they can't accept that then they are not true to you. (Report) Reply

    Dear Miss Reynolds
    One is, what one is, what one is,
    Since the beginning of Time its been like this.

    So if I may give some advise do what you can to change without stopping being You. and don't worry about it. (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
