Sometimes There’s A Need To Shut Everything Out

Sometimes There's A Need To Shut Everything Out

sometimes there’s a need
to shut everything out
and not be made to feel wrong
for craving the comfort of solitude
to not be seen as the freak
the mutant
an abnormality
the peculiar oddball
who wishes to reside on a lone island
to not have to think
or even speak
or be relied upon
but just for a little while
excel as the drop out failure
and it not matter at all
