A Thousand Thoughts
by Lisa Lock
A smirk to me is a smile, that I replay a thousand times.
Confused by what I understand, from crazy mixed up signs.
Drowning in my own emotions, reflecting all things through.
Thinking that the way that I think, is the way that others do.
But now I know that I am wrong, theirs is a much more simple song.
With unmingled lyrics the beat is fast, no recorded conversations past.
No rehearsed quote to stay afloat, their language is more free.
I just pray and hope one day, they accept me for being me.
