I’m confused
But then again
I should be

When you gain
New information
It makes sense
That you would need time
To process
And figure it out

Cause I mean
New information
Is no new thing
But having so much
So fast
Is hard

It’s like my mind just shuts off
listens for later
And then it comes pouring out
To fast
For me to process

I’ve never
Thought about this
Like I am now
I never thought I’d have to

But now I do
And I want to
I just can’t seem
To process it
Nearly as quick
As my mind can

So it’s hard
And because it’s hard
I don’t want to
I don’t want to think
I don’t want to see
I don’t want to do

I just want to be there
And live it
And let that be enough
