My past does not define me anymore


Should I be scared of going the wrong way?

Or should I keep marching on?


Music too loud, lights to bright

I feel like turning to the night


All I ever learnt

Is that safety and happiness

Demands a sacrifice

Or was that a lie?


The Past

The Presence

The Future


Does it even have a meaning

In the life I try to reach?


Have all those thoughts

All those emotions

Truly ever been mine?


It all feels way too far

I feel way too young


What is my purpose?
Do I even have one?


If I keep evolving

Who will I turn into?
How can I fly

With those broken wings?


I ask way too many questions

I am aware

But it helps me think

It puts me at ease


Knowing at least one thing stayed the same

My desire to know and understand


What if this is all I am?

An endless questioning soul trapped in this world

To make their own answers?


Maybe if this stays the same

Then I know I will be safe

    We all need to ask questions in our lives and one day they will be answered in the correct way and life will be so much better.

    Wonderful poem. You cannot learn how to live your life without questions, questions, and more questions. Without questions how do you know if your happy?

  • Teddy.15

    The questions are answered because you are living them. Senseless? Definately not
