Identity Loss

I am at a loss

When you don’t see what I see.

The stars I am trying to reach

The mountains as I try to climb thee,

The pain inside of me.

I am at a loss

When you don’t feel me.

The wrong that I try to toss

The confusion I try to comprehend,

The love that I try to send.

I am at a loss when you don’t know me.

As I try to break free, you continue to bind me.

The person you created, you never really knew.

Is it your fault? Yes you,

That you gave me an identity that has become a loss.
