To Be Me

I need a day to breath
To sit and not care about anything around me
To only know that I exist
And nothing else
I need a day to be silent
To hear the subtle whispers of the earth
To let my ears stop throbbing
From the constant assault of noise
I need a day to be still
To rest this weary body
To let the ever present tension go
And remember what it is like to feel my own energy
I need a day to be me again
To be immersed in the knowledge of me
To be reminded who I am deep down
Because I have lost myself in other peoples’ worlds
I have been enveloped in other peoples’ wants
I have been covered in other peoples’ dreams
And I need a day to be me.
