I am functioning
Because I am empty
Drifting through
While dragging along
Those two sides of me.

I am focused
Because I am diverted
Noises deafening
While silence is
Drowning in a sea inverted.

I am fueled
Because I am drained
Rushing slowly
While stillness speeds
Each task and action to be strained.

I am funny
Because I am sad
Smiling out
While crying in
All the good and the bad.
