Tainted Glass

I may be happy on the outside but I'm looking outside my eyes through the tainted glass.  I can't imagine living like this everything is colorful but sometimes it looks gray. What is seen by the eye isn't always there. Is it touch? A cool breeze, where does it come from? I can't stand the anger of the past trying to catch up with the present. My past is gone now, I'm living my dreams to the fullest. I may not be the brightest bulb or even the sharpest tool in the shed, but I know one thing and one thing only. I am who I am. Sometimes you just have to live life alone. No one needs to know what you do 24/7/365. I can be who I want to be instead of being stuck in a tainted glass ball. I wish it weren't that way of living in a bubble, but I use my imagination to color my way to happiness. No one to bother me no one to judge.  Just living in a carefree world where we all get along. And peace is finally achieved.
