I am or am I?
I’m not what you want or am I what you need.
I’m the distant echo you barely hear, I’m the last drop of rain you hardly notice.
I’m not the loud crow to scream only for your ears.
I’m the sun you wear shades to avoid
nor am I the luscious rose that catches your eyes.
I’m the sign you ignore and the button you don’t need.
I’m not the laughter you crave to endure or the good luck you wish to have.
I’m just the vast ocean you’re too scared to explore, the lonely sea you steer clear
and the secret beach you’re too lazy to discover.
