Running on Empty (Poem)

I need time to think without being forced to think
I need time to recharge my mind

I need time to think about myself for while
Not my selfish self
The one who makes the Earth smile

I been running on empty for far too long

Stuck in a maze full of hate and anxiety

Stuck in a whirlwind of push and shove against the wall
And when I try to push back
It’s me against the world

I may stutter when I talk
I may forget many things
I may walk around these blocks like I’m lost in a dream

I’m not the reason why the emptiness became me
The emptiness is all around
And it’s all I see

So take a step back before you criticize me
I am the mirror
And you’re the empty I see
