In my mind, there is never sleep

Thoughts are what create

I want to be loud

Louder than I am

And I am loud

I wish people could feel my love

Without misinterpreting it

Without abusing it

I just want to be good

Sometimes I fail

And that’s okay

But not to everyone

So my soul aches

My mind churns

The thoughts banish

My good intentions

I’m scared to say “no”

Too much trouble to dispute

The past makes us hesitate.
