Somewhere I Belong?

by Praveen Kumar

lonely, confused and sad,lonely leaf - Somewhere I Belong?
it feels as if i was just a shadow of the day,
in light i exist and in darkness, i am gone!

what am i searching for?
when i have nothing else to search for!
surrounded by all sides, i try my best to survive,
but i have only 2 hands!

i run, i run as fast i could,
till i have no breath and no roads left,
but i end up where i started from;

drowning in my bloodshed tears,
searching for a place where i belong,
i stand alone, wandering and wondering
What am I supposed to do?

So sad. So lonely. You reminded me of my own time like this.

This really captures that place alot of people find themselves in. It seems to describe an absence of hope, a key ingredient to a healthy human heart. The above link I also found to interesting.

Thank you for insight.

Exactly how I feel right now. I am sure I have done all but there is always something missing. I am beginning to love the rain though as it covers my tears when I cry. The emptiness inside me is becoming a big hole and it’s kinda suffocating me now. I feel every word in your piece.
