The mind

Birth, unknown. Ignorant into life, yet not alive. Only years after, my realization of living begins, ignorant. Years go by, but always alone, with no one who knows, sees nor hears me. I can scream from the deepest of myself but silence is all I hear.
Even though, conversation is possible, only with myself.
Years of wandering how and why, knowing that if I can not speak out loud, why conversation can be heard by me and nobody else.
I can never be with another, for nobody knows that I am here, living, knowing, questioning. Or am I not here? Am I just an illusion that I created within myself when my life was dark and alone?
Looking around, I can not find a soul to listen to. Nobody who speaks the way that I do and know. And yet, everybody speaks without hearing. Everybody has the knowledge of thought known to themselves.

In a way, everyone is aloneā€¦ in their minds.
