My Mad World

Updated on October 21, 2013

Am I me today, or am I?

There comes a time in our lives when we just don't feel like we fit in with the crowd, like an onlooker or stranger, perhaps....or we feel like we are on the outside, looking in. Or we feel like our clothes are five sizes too big.

Everyone gets a little lonely and awkward at times. But it's ok.

Go through the feelings and know that life is a rollercoaster and your ups will soon come again.

There are days...

...when I just don't feel like myself.

Loneliness, Sadness, Indifference

Sadness is a pendulum of feelings derived from reality!

Sometimes...

Sometimes I feel like

I'm on the outside looking in &

Everything and everyone

Will casually go on

If I ceased to exist.


Sometimes I feel like

I've made no difference in the world

Even to myself. Sometimes

I feel like all the world drops dead.


Sometimes I feel like screaming,

But, nobody will hear me.

I could stand in the middle of a

Crowded street and they would all

Just walk right past me.


Those are the days

That I feel completely insane.

Those are the days

That I am.

Mad World

How do you feel today?
