Have you ever felt motionless within a moving crowd? Like, you're watching everything that surrounds you go on yet you are unable to take a step forward? This poem is about that. This is about feeling broken and lost.

Feel Alive

I know they are in motion,
But I can’t see them move.
It’s like knowing you are breathing,
But you don’t feel alive.

Everything around me’s frozen,
‘cause I’m frozen deep inside.
Unable to grasp some air and take a step;
Is this as hard as it could get?

I drink the breeze and throw it out;
Doesn’t seem to calm me down.
Then the sunlight hits my face,
And my demons go to hide.

Exposed by their undressing stares,
My mind gets filled with rage.
Locked in this cloudless haze;
Just trying to find my way.

How do I break out of this box,
If it’s completely made of steel?
I know that I’m still breathing,
But I don’t feel alive.
