Forever Lost



Running around in circles

Going nowhere

Going everywhere

Standing still

Afraid to move

Afraid to be left behind


Nowhere to turn

All ears available

All eyes on me

No one's paying attention


Constricting forces

Pull me in opposite directions

And push me towards the same goal

Too much input

Too little understanding

Too much world

Not enough me


As the forces grow stronger

They slowly pull me apart

And soon I am living

Two half empty lives

Not able to live

One full life any longer


As my mind

My body

My soul

Is separated and divided

Between two equal forces

I am forever lost.
