when do we really know WHO we are?

Walking without moving
Wondering why I am here
My life so carefully planned
Has fallen into the abyss
Each moment orchestrated
By some unknown entity
That does not even understand or
Know the real me

Talking with out speaking
Words? Or jumbled sounds?
Lips service that makes no sense
Confusion abounds
In this life long monologue
Falling on deaf ears
This has become my life I fear

Living without feeling
Wondering, what’s the use?
This med or that med
Or no meds at all!
I will cut them lose

It is what it is
There is no excuse
My life is what I MAKE IT
Not the red pill or the blue!
Diagnosis: I am me
Not who they want me to be
March to my own drummer
Sing my own songs
Lyrics written in my head
They do not understand
My heart no longer broken
Is that so wrong
That I have moved on
My life
For the first time
I am me
