“When My Mind’s At a Toss” – Tyler Sorrell

Here is where I don’t want to be,I just can’t leave.

There’s so much to accomplish in the moments that I just can’t breathe.

There’s so much to go after in the moments that I just can’t see.

I get stuck in thoughts that could never be true.

Overwhelmed by the emptiness I wished I got through.

Still in search for the feelings my former lovers all threw…

Away.

That’s where I always wish to go.

Not too far, just hidden enough for the, “you’ll never know.”

Somewhere near the clouds that we’re normally so far below.

Then I think of the talents I’m still meant to show.

I recognize the time that I still have to grow.

At times, I just go blind due to the strength of its glow.

No, it’s not everyday anymore that these thoughts come across.

I’ve been exposed to the greatness of my own, sometimes I just feel its at loss.

The late-greats have said it best and I quote:

“I pay the cost to be boss.”

Too look good when I floss…

I have to be the one to catch myself when my mind’s at a toss.
