Confusion pulls my mind into infinite darkness

An eternity of pain causes my heart to collapse

Useless doubt haunts my brain

But I survive nonetheless


It controls me, steers me afar

My cowardly existence bends down to its demands

But deep down, down under the surface of my being 

Lurks the question - What if control is all I need?


I need to be strong, or put on a show at the least

Confusion does not know to discriminate between Mirage and Reality

I've got hate and guilt and fear,

Confusion isn't my only beast.


Embrace your confusion

It's not for the weak,

Fight before it's too late,

Fight before you forget to breathe.

  • Comment from author about the poem: Well, it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s my first poem that I wrote ages ago as a stupid child. I once had a friend, I mean I still do, that friend shared some stuff and I couldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t stop thinking about the amount of pain she was suffering so I decided to pen it down.
