Maybe it is just some odd wave of thoughts

Or maybe my head churning,

trying to comprehend what I can not understand.

Such a distraughting feeling of woe.

I am part of the undertow.

How did this come to be?

My life was just amazing with my family.

Outside, though, I felt alone and unwanted.

Completely foreign to those,

People lie, this I know.

I can see the lies through your teeth.

Should I be suprised?

Maybe I blame myself more than others.

They don't seem bothered.

I wish I knew what to do.

I wish I could tell you how your presence makes me feel.

It doesn't seem right.

I am just part of the Undertow.

For now.

I will grow out of this.

Easy to understand, a simple concept.

If I could, I wish some of you would know.

I am angry with those people, but I will never wish them harm.

This feeling I felt, I hope you will never know.

For now, I am in the undertow.

With a secret and a smile.

Maybe one day, I will see a hand to help me out.
