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..

Re: pammy
very good points indeed..

although i think there are a lot of pressures in the world (for both men and women), my greatest stumbling block is my own damn self.

and thanks for the compliment about my writing...it sort of just fell out, like some of my artwork??? maybe i'll include it in my next book (probably a collage book)

;D
