The Unknown

The Invisible

Along the street I look

For something that life once took

Finding it would fix my heart

The one that the world tore apart

People would just walk right through me

As if they couldn’t see

Ignoring me as though I wasn’t there

Shouting at the world for pretending to ever care

Running in every single direction there is

Turning over every rock to see if there’s anything I missed

Keep passing this same thing each day

Something always made me scatter the other way

Got an unknown feeling whenever I got around it

That fear inside of me screaming for me to quit

I’ve gone everywhere I could

Yet again my legs led me here to this piece of wood

Panic spreads throughout my body as I feel compelled to move towards that door

Sad thing is, I don’t even know exactly what I’m looking for.

      Thank you, and a part of wishes you didn't yet I mean I'm glad you know someone out there knows how you feel at least.

        I understand what you mean....and i promise you, you WILL find your way...but learn from the journey so as to be the person you were meant to be.

        Clever write and a nice 'twist' at the end.

        The unknown is a great part of life and the world, and is what keeps everything so fascinating to discover. It can be scary though, as can any experience for the first time.

          Yeah well I can't tell if this is going to be a good one or not. But I appreciate your comment.

          The way is there and that door will open into the joy of life.

            I like how confident you are that that's what's there.
