Emotions...clamouring inside me...
Voices...crying to be heard...
Feelings that are strange, and
Things I can't put into words.
I am a thousand different beings
With a thousand different thoughts...
A soul without a meaning,
Elusive...yet ever sought.
No bonds can hold my wandering mind,
Like the wind, it travels far...
A spirit...lost in space and time
Like an ageless, drifting star.
Emotions, feelings, thoughts and voices...
Each one struggling to be free;
Is each a separate entity?
Or just different parts of me?
