"Balance is key to living a good life. Too much 'reality' will make you angry, too much dreaming will make you indifferent. You need dreams to live better and life to accomplish dreams =]" - Ms.Nada (my spanish teacher)

They tell me I look lost
because maybe I am.

They give me direction
even though I know were I stand.

They tell me I look flustered
but what do they know?

They just don't understand
that all their demands are cause for amends.

But maybe they're right
to put up a fight.

They just cannot perceive
what I want to achieve.

I have forgotten all ties
with all of their lies.

The author's comments:
People are always telling me I look lost so this poem addresses that and expresses what I think about it.
