Sometimes I wish I didn't give a damn
I wish I could walk like I have nowhere to go
Then my journey wouldn't seem so hard
My emotions wouldn't collide with my rationale
My sanity would override my sentiments
Feelings that were once complex
yearning freedom of expression and acceptance
rejoice in tranquility and simplicity
the breeding grounds for confusion
washed away by quiet complacency

Because I would no longer stop to worry
where it is that I should be
or what direction is the best route for me
I can stop caring
dry my eyes and stop crying
no longer feeling the urge
to pause to write
because really I won't have the time
to give a damn
