I am already happy

A million voices fill my ears and yet I hear none.

I am deaf.

I am lost.

I cannot find my way.

Which way do I go?

I thought this way was up but this way is really down.

Are there no right answers?

I am always wrong.

Everything I hate seems to be right.

Show me no directions.

I am already happy.

I don’t want to follow your rules but my rules are no better.

Can I open my eyes now?

Can I hear you sing?

I’ve been waiting to hear you sing.

Breathe life into me.

I am scared of heights.

Bring me down.

I am already happy.

If I start walking and never stop will I get somewhere....finally?

If I want it more than life itself will it come....finally?

I know nothing.

I own nothing but I am something.

I am already happy.

If I buy it will it make me better?

Will it make me happier?

I am already happy.

Without status or fame, I am already happy.
