My thoughts have been racing

For about as long as I can remember.

At times, too fast.

Leaving me far behind.

And in those moments,

I am ashamed.


I try to observe the world,

Calmly, yet eagerly at the same time.

But somehow, for some unknown reason

I am unable to observe even inner workings of my own mind.

And at times like these,

I feel trapped.

Lost in an infinite prison

Pushing on the walls of my own mind to let me free.


I would do anything

Just for the chance to leave my own thoughts

And connect with the outside world again.


I wonder if I will ever truly be free.
