  • Why am I so different?

    Why do I hide?

    I lock the doors

    Shut the windows

    And the blinds

    I keep inside

    The mere thought of interaction

    Closes up my throat

    My chest pounds

    I can't breathe

    Can't make a sound

    It's a lonely place

    Inside my mind

    But I dare not leave

    This prison cell

    The world outside

    Is surely hell

    I've made a mess

    Of things so far

    Something in this life

    Or a past one

    Has surely left a scar

    I know what people think

    And say behind my back

    That I'm a weirdo

    And a freak

    Cause I can't call them back

    Inside myself I suffer

    I could cry and often do

    Why am I so isolated?

    Hiding out in my own pain.

    Having no clue what is causing

    Me to slowly go insane?

    Run away, run away

    I always want to run away

    Why does every moment

    Have to be so hard?

    I pray to God.

    No answer.

    And I soon begin to see

    That maybe God don't answer

    Cause he's an introvert like me
