How will I explain?

How will I explain
the lure of intimate strangers
that make me leave my tasks undone
The world will not understand

How will I explain
the wilderness inside my head
where I adventure for hours on end
The world has never known it

How will I explain
this hunger for words and perception
that mutes all responsibilities
The world will not approve

How will I explain
when night falls without tangible achievement
“But at least I really felt poetry today…”

How will I ever explain?
