Sometimes, it's discomforting.

Sometimes, I just feel alone.

Not lonely, I have plenty of family and friends.

I just feel an absence.

I have this strange sense of seclusion,

Like an isolated prisoner.

Other times, I feel withdrawn,

Like a hermit in its shell.

It's discomforting to feel lost.

 

Sometimes, I just feel the need to change.

Not to satisfy others, I don't care what they think.

I just feel odd.

I have this strange sense of dissimilarity,

Like a shoe on the wrong foot.

Other times, I feel out of place,

Like an antique idea in the modern world.

It's discomforting to feel different.

 

Sometimes, I just feel the need to leave.

Not to see something new, I don't need to explore.

I just feel afraid.

I have this strange sense of entrapment,

Like a caged animal.

Other times I feel endangered,

Like a child in the dark.

It's discomforting to feel afraid.

 

Sometimes,  I just feel.

It's discomforting to feel.
