I WANT BUT.......

I want to write
but my words are swallowed
I want to recite
but the sun set and my voice followed

I want to walk
but my feet threaten to strike
I want to talk
but my tongue is tied

I want to break free
but my desires clash with reality
I want to fly but my wing instincts are buried under naivety

I want to learn
but life’s lessons are unsystematic and abrupt
I want to recover
but the trauma of insensitivity on my brain is wrapped
