So Many Keys
So many keys with no locks to correspond, yet so many locks without a key.
So many concepts without understanding, yet so much understanding with concepts.
I see so much life without love, yet I have so much love to give.
I cannot hate any man, yet so few have the same idea.
So many answers that go nowhere, yet so many questions unanswered.
My life is just starting, yet I feel so old.
I feel so young, yet I have so many experiences inside me.
So many experiences, yet they are never enough.
I have built a wall around me, yet I cannot see or feel it.
My walls protect me, yet I want no protection.
I am so hungry, yet I can hold no more.
So many doors in the hallway, yet no time to explore them all.
So many invitations, yet I cannot accept them all.
So many strings pulling at me, yet I cannot cut the ones I do not want.
So many problems with no solutions, yet so many solutions that go nowhere.
I feel I have lost my way.
