Why feel this way?

Why feel this way, why feel this way every day?  

I always feel this way.

I don't want to feel this way. 

And yet, I don't know what I feel.

It feels like I feel everything in every way.

But at the same time I feel nothing today.

I can't explain if I'm sad, if I'm angry or if I am mad.

I don't know why I feel this way. 

Is there a reason to feel this way?

My day is no different from everyone else's everyday.

and yet why do I feel this way?

Do I just not know how to feel?

But, I know how I feel.

I feel mad, I feel angry, but more than anything else, I feel sad.

but what has happened to make me feel this way?

What's so much so has ruined my every day?


I have no reason to feel this way.

And yet I feel this way today, I feel this way every day.

The day drags on and the nights are long, and yet this is how I stay.

I stay feeling this way.

I don't know how to stop feeling this way.

I don't know how to feel the way I'm supposed to feel.

WHat do you do when your life is normal?

When there is no reason for you to feel sad, and yet you do.

I work hard, I do what I should.

I listen to the health seminars and listen to the teachers say “If you treat yourself well, you will never feel this way.”

But yet I do feel this way.

But yet I feel this way everyday.

And I still don't know why I feel this way.
