I don't really want to live anymore,
but I don't want to die either.

I wish I could be
somewhere else,
some place I feel

I've never really felt free,
arms outstretched
reaching for the heavens.

I’ve never felt the wind
sweep through me
and carry me into the stars.

I’ve never known belonging,
being one with the universe,
only the sense of longing
for something more.
