My Thoughts Have Thoughts Have Thoughts

Mon, 11/10/2014 - 12:49 -- hburke

This world is a neverending puzzle
I have yet to solve;
Tossed around haphazardly,
There's no chance to evolve.

Tell me what's inside your head,
Let it not escape your thoughts.
I need to understand the thread,
To surpass them, I cannot. 

You are running from oblivion,
In fear of falling short.
Surely its a cruel world you are living in,
With fears of every sort.

The truth is I'm tired of trying to please
Someone who so fervently self-consumes
I understand self love is crucial,
but to the point of isolation,
At what cost?
