2 a.m.

Shadows put words in my brain

That I can barely fathom

Running back and forth 

At the speed of light and

I'm trying with all my might


I'm on this ledge

But I'm afraid to jump

And I want to get through this but

I can't see the end

And I need someone 

To tell me it's okay

To feel like this

And to hold me 

And make me feel

Safe inside my own skin

This poem is about: 
Our world
