I Don’t Know Shadow

You Lil Dickens

I tried to die at twenty-five
Again, not long after
That. That is never a fun chapter.

I don't want to hear it
I don't want to quit

I pushed too hard
And for what?
SEE — I really don't have any luck!

I don't want to feel
I don't want to show

Stalled. Appalled.
Locked up — alone
Eat your words, each one — a stone.

I don't want to stay
I don't want to go

What do you want?
Why do I care?
What do I do?
Who are you, exactly?
Who am I, really?

I don't know.
I don't know.
I don't know.

AH — THERE! Now, I see. I'm a seed.
I planted. I watered. Hoped to grow.
Alas, I'm merely standing in my own shadow 
My Shadow of I Don't Know.
