The Struggles of Being Too Aware

Dreaming within the confines of my reality,
Whether it’d be possible or not,
I suppose that parts of me wish to be freed from the cages of my consciousness.
I live without expression,
Without genuineness,
Without passion.

I am merely something that is being
Within our universal structure.
Could I grow and live
Without the fear of others rejection?

I guess,
For the new year,
I wish to create a peace within my mind
That balances confidence
And genuineness.
