Living Life Without Breathing
It's like trying to see yourself blink without a video to record it.
It's like trying to see yourself sneeze without anything to capture it.
It's like trying to get clean by bathing yourself in mud.
It's like trying to make the cracks in a mirror disappear.
It's like trying to fix your clock without anyone to tell you the time.
It's like trying to finish a puzzles with all end pieces.
Like trying to inflate a balloon after it popped.
Like trying to slam a revolving door.
Like trying to nail Jell-O to a tree.
Like trying to fix your piggy bank after you smash it.
Like trying to sprint in a pair of shoes that's too big.
It's like trying to count the rain drops that fall in a storm.
Like trying to count the blades of grass in your lawn.
Like sky diving over the mountains with no parachute and surviving.
Like trying to convince your English teacher that "ain't" is a word.
Like trying to communicate with someone that speaks a different language.
Like trying to mend a heart after it's been broken.
It's never going to work,
Never going to happen.
So give up.
No matter how hard you try,
No matter what you do,
You are never going to understand me.
Because trying to understand me is like trying to survive without breathing.
