Do you ever feel Like the words are stuck, So much you want to say? But you allowed someone To break the connection Between your soul and fingers? Do you ever feel So pushed and pulled By other's emotions You forget which ones Are truly your own? Are you so compelled To give and give to others You whither in the drought That's left behind? Boundaries, boundaries are So hard for me to find. They're invisible laser beams Protecting a fine jewel. I can't see them. I clumsily make my way through. I allow others to determine my path. Where is the strength I felt two years ago? Will it ever return? Until then, I swing from here to there, Tripping, slipping along the way. Searching for the strength I knew Before my world was turned upside-down.
