I Am Not What You Think! - Antwon Rose

Submitted by sudo in Poetry (edited )

I am confused and afraid 
I wonder what path I will take
I hear that there's only two ways out 
I see mothers bury their sons
I want my mom to never feel that pain 
I am confused and afraid

I pretend all is fine 
I feel like I'm suffocating 
I touch nothing so I believe all is fine 
I worry that it isn't though 
I cry no more 
I am confused and afraid

I understand people believe I'm just a statistic 
I say to them I'm different 
I dream of life getting easier 
I try my best to make my dream true 
I hope that it does 
I am confused and afraid
