express myself better sometimes in a poem...


I'm surrounded by people having a good time

And I try to have a good time

At least look the part

But I'm Charlie Brown

And everyone’s speaking


And I don't understand or care

What they're saying

Because I'm in my mind somewhere

Under the sky

Mouth open wide

Catching fat acid snowflakes

On my tongue

Because it's real.

short, succinct, powerful.

Nothing wrong with being Charlie Brown. Everyone loves Charlie Brown. :)

thats probably better than actually hearing them though.

When I'm around a group of people, occasionally I feel as if it's not real, and that it doesn't hold any importance in my life. If it isn't worth remembering tomorrow and isn't positive, I get anxious immediately, and that's my cue to leave. If I don't leave, I start feeling out-of-my-body, which I wholly dislike. <br />

I completely get the Charlie Brown metaphor. So many times I've tuned the world out to get away from the perpetual "wawawa."
