Lost within Myself


Where am I?

I swear that nothing I see seems real

The pain I see in people's eyes

And the chaos in which consumes the world.


Have I died and gone to hell?

Because I see my brothers and sisters die

Over greed and money

Over race and creed.


My relationship with the world

Seems so empty

As I hide indoors to hide from the truth

And I  hide to protect others from me.


I see darkness where light once was

Death where life should have been

Laughter turned into sadness

And happiness turned into pain.


Am I the cause of my own damnation

The root of all my trouble

The reason for my clouded thought

And the slayer of my own heart

        Good write. It is not you there are many that feel like this with the way our world is at the present. Look towards the light, it is out there.
