The Same

Maybe all these
Nonsense connections
I try and make
Are just taking up
Important head space
Dropped off and shoved out
For something better 

But now left all filled
By things that won't help me
Solve my problems
Not by a long shot

If this is like this
How is that like that
Fill in the blanks 
Do you get it? 
Do you not?

And now I'm running in circles
And can't figure out 

How to exist in this world
Without any doubt.
