is it too much to ask
For me to find a place
Where I can wear my face?

Can I not find a rut
where I'll stay stuck?
Perfect in its divot

--------------------------

Can I claim to walk on shore
And feel the green between my toes
Or grace the skies with wings
No I cannot.
for I am a flying fish.

---------------------------

When I look into the mirror
I see me looking back
I recognize the eyes, lips, and skin.
But what lurks behind the cold eyes?
What words fall from his lips?
What has that skin had to weather through?
Yes I know the body, but I don't know the boy.

-----------------------------
Just thoughts that bounce in my mind.

I am glad to see I was not the only felt this way when I was much, much younger.  It gets better with time, and getting to actually "fit  your own skin."

Good one Zach.
