    feeling conflicted...about the feeling
    dealing with truths unlocking
    trying to unravel the mystery behind why
    touching the winds vibration
    comforting sky felt clouds wandering
    maybe this process is wrong
    or altered in some way
    as the days tick by mockingly
    critical decisions go unspoken
    said i was joking but i was not
    tinkered with a sensitive spot
    where my footing wasn't sure
    having to endure this predictament
    has me caught curiously
    between hell and indecision
    choosing the next move is like a chess match
    i'm surprised to be a pawn
    the dawn peeks through an open window
    shining light on my sullen position
    sitting in this chair staring intensely
    at a lost world in collapse
    mapping out my prior destination finds the fork in the road
    and a strange twist
    my confliction rests on misguided principles
    taught long ago
    why haven't i let those things go?
    the realization startles me
    the confliction is merely an addiction
    to the way i want it to be
    if i desire a more productive situation
    what has to change is...me

    we are the pawns
    on this board
