Life

Don’t Give Up

September 17, 2008
It’s half past midnight
tossing and turning
unable to sleep,
I don’t know what to do;

My mind is far away
in search of something
that I once had and
somehow slipped out my hand;

Struggling to understand this
tug of war between the mind and heart
I try to search for a solution
so as to agree on a compromise;

Trying to pay attention
to what’s happening around me,
I try to decipher the clues and hints
that I believe are there for my picking;

Like a fish out of water,
Out of innocence into adulthood
Too soon into this fast paced game
where I am just a spectator, lost and bewildered;

So, what happened?
Where did I all go wrong?
What am I supposed to do?
What is it that I have to do?

Plenty of questions and
answers all out there,
is what I am told,
yet I am totally lost;

Going round and round
in a place where the streets
have no name, I bobble
in and out of life;

As the storm rages on unabated,
the leaves blow and the trees sway,
all I know is that I am here to stay,
till the day my heart gives up on me;
