I feel so lost, and out of place.

So restless and sleepless I lay.

In peace, I rest .Within my mind.

Dreams are so close, yet far from me.

It's not fair, but life's that way.

Living in fear, hoping one day, I'll be secure.

Though, I try not to lose faith.

There's always doubt.

I wish that it could change.

Maybe then, I'll find my place.

Before my time, slips away.
