Image for the poem DAZED & CONFUSED


I am often wandering about and I'm mixed-up & dazed.
Feeling so hopeless, empty, and so very horribly ashamed.
Not know who I'd turn to when I am feeling so crazed.
By so many who have and will continue to go unnamed.

Feeling clumsy and awkward, do I dare to even reach out?
I'm so unsure and unbalanced, riddled with self-doubt.
Mumbling on thoughts as I wander myself here and about.
Wearing my fake smile when really I wanna cry and pout.

My hearts shattered, so many pieces are lost or askew.
And my minds in a funk leaving me not knowing what's true.
Also my hands feel bound and tied, what can and do I do?
You're a stranger anymore, so I can no longer depend on you.

My tears are falling I've often held back and try hard to hide.
Countless times or even days you haven't a clue, I've cried.
Many words go unspoken, I keep them locked deep inside.
There's times I haven't told the truth, but neither have I lied.

Would you accept me without asking me to ever change?
Just so I'd fit in your world and not feel so lonely & strange.
Or would you put me back together, so I'm rearranged?
Maybe I'm just better off locked up and stay inside my cage.
