I talk and they bite

I talk and they bark

I touch and they bite

Nothing I can say or do ever seem right

I am lost and I am confused

By all the things they say and do

Why is the world a hostile place?

I feel so displaced

I am terrified to speak

I am anxious to touch

Why does the world hate me so much?

I am lonely and I am afraid

From my true world I have strayed

But people say you’ve lost your mind

There is no other world to find

So get along with what you’ve got

Stop crying about what you’re not

Get away and be quiet now

You are making the air stale
