I’ve Been Told

I’ve been told

that my soul is old.

I am reminded constantly

that I see this world differently.

I like to think that’s true

I like to believe that I really do.

But I see the world

completely bare and unfurled

I see it how it is

a beautiful lie, a deceitful kiss.

I see it for what it is worth

this messed up earth.

People think I see it differently

but I just pretend I don’t see.

Because the truth is, I am terrified.

Absolutely Terrified.
