Numb

Seeking the peace I search
Wandering aimlessly though this world
Across the meadows green I walk
Noticing every flower
Every creature I seek
But it naught affects me
I'm unaffected by the beauty
So I continue my search
On the cold hard city streets
Looking at the people who push past me
Where are they going?
They hurry so fast
Rushing everywhere
Trying to win an unknown race
Unlike me
Numb to my surroundings
Indifferent to the pain of the world
I'll stand as someone dies
Wondering
Asking
What's the big deal?
We all die anyways
I'd rather be numb
Than be aware
