place in this world


I would like to be a writer

but I don´t have the stamina or the creativity.

I would like to be a vet and nurse animals back to health

provide them with what they have always given me

but I don´t have the willpower and grades to learn how.

I would like to be like the people who study criminology but I lack the stable mind and steady hands

and so I would be more like the people they learn to avoid.

Where is my place in this world that everyone told me I would come to find?

I would like to travel to a different one but those gates I will never find.

    thanks for sharing, such a relatable read
    I choose to believe
    knowing what we want, is half the journey dear poet
    the rest
    is unearthed, when allowing
    our steps: to guide our path
    believing, we've arrived
    to where our journeys begin
    by simply trusting ourselves
    and investing
    in those shards of hope, realised
    in each breath of life, we taste!

      thank you! i suppose life consists of those moments where we just have to do what feels right to us and see where it takes us.
