Confusion

Written by: Laura Stalnaker

I have heard so many people say, life is something grand 
The secret to being happy, I just don't understand.
My heart is always knocking, wanting out so it can feel 
What it's like to be happy, what it feels like to be real. 
As this little voice is saying, today we'll have some fun
While another voice says go ahead, but know that I will run. 
Deep within I am so confused, I am feeling so distraught 
Every time I try to think, I lose my train of thought. 
How to get my life on track, such knowledge I'm without
It seems I'm locked within myself, with no exit to get out.
