Not Always a Choice

Maybe it seems over the top

And you want things to just stop

Don’t brush it off as something else

Not putting the effort to make sense

Even as the world falls down

So incomprehension only makes you frown

Sending your mind into a downward spiral, making everything you think go mentally viral


Only stopping when it hits you in the face

Realizing that things seem to come down from space


But forgetting that they come just the same

Reaching out to you to feel a little sane

I find that I’m just as easily lost

Letting myself drift among the dross

Listening to the sounds of life all around

Interests still running you into the ground

And when someone takes the time to reach out

Not knowing who you are, but taking care to shout

Can’t keep going all on your own

Especially when brilliance needs another to truly be shown
