why can't i?

why can't i?
-baby smith

a voice is speaking to me deep inside, saying,
“why can’t i just be,
why can’t i just be?”

why can’t i stop wondering what people think,
whether i’m too fat,
too thin,
too short,
too small?

why can’t i just relax and let things flow..
shed my fears and let things go?

why do i worry about what i earn,
whether i have kids,
if i’m married, single,
or have too much to learn?

why can’t i just be?
why can’t i just be?

why can’t i stop thinking of things in the past,
move forward..
bring myself to live exactly where i am, at last?

why can’t i just be?
why can’t i just be?

will this voice never stop?
will i never be calm?
will i ever see what is before me, right here, just now..
not question or second guess or simply freak out?

why can’t i just finish this thought?
why can’t i..

why can't i ?
I feel one or more of these things every single day. I think that other people worry about what is happening with my life more than than I do. The media is to blame about how we should look, feel, dress, love and how much money we should make. We gauge our success by others, not by our own wants and needs. What is success? Finding the prefect mate? Time? Money? Fame? Health? Society needs for me to be like them, but I am not them, I am me.
