So this is what they meant when they said
"You'll become lost"
On the brink of adulthood never knowing
What to do or what to say
People crowding around you,
Suffocating you, changing you, trying to rearrange you,
Because they do not understand you
Never being able to sleep because you are unaware of what your impending future haunts
Your every thought to this point where you
Do not know what is real and what is not
You are in the middle of the ocean searching for land,
Yearning for it, striving for it,
Never knowing from what direction it will appear
Estranged from everyone yet somehow always near.
