Unsettling, like a lie,
Unsure of where to turn,
What to do next,

Afraid of what you think,
Afraid of other's thoughts.
What if I'm not good enough,
What if you're disappointed?

Lost in a sea of my own turmoil,
Trying to swim through it all,
But to no avail.
Too many options, so little time,

Thoughts run rampant,
You think one way,
I think another.
You say black, I say white,

Freedom of thought,
Something I want to have,
But at times it's hard.
So many opinions weighing down, what to do?

The author's comments:
I had a lot of emotions swirling around inside my head, so I wrote this to get them out.
