A passing lyric

Lost

From a happy childhood 

I somehow lost my way 

never knew what I was doing

always lost for words to say.

It all started when 

I was about fourteen 

when I lost all my confidence 

tried my best to not be seen.

They said I was quiet 

just a little shy 

but no one ever really knew 

all the reasons why.

She'll find her self in high school 

soon it will just click 

as for a time when that would be

a time they could not pick.

She'll find herself in her twenties

no matter what the cost

but I worry now and every day 

that I'll always be

lost.

-KK

    A very common feeling. Confidence is an elusive quality. I know the feeling very well. I think part of the problem is we feel we need someone to show us the way. But in reality, I think we find confidence when we choose our own way by following our heart. At least, that's what seems right for me. I hope you find the same. Great write KK.
