Through the Motions.

go through the motions

with no empathy

I lack all emotions

I live like a tree.

rooted in one place,

while others move on.

I don't understand.

or know how to love.

I give it my hardest

but still, I will fail.

I'm just a carcass.

" why are you so pale?"

if I were a tree,

would you set me ablaze?"

watch as I burn?

lay me down in a grave?

I live among humans

who don't understand

though they see nothing wrong

I know I'm not like them.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My country
Our world
