A/N: A poem I wrote a while ago about a person searching for their path and meeting an obstacle. Told from first person pov. R&R please.


I'm tryna get through this

I'm tryna be strong

Instead I'm crumbling

Like I predicted all along

I'm tryna be somebody

I'm tryna do something

But you're clamping me down

Stopping me from spreading my wings

I'm tryna follow my dreams

I'm tryna find my place in life

But you just wanna scream

Make me search for comfort in the welcoming night

I'm tryna

But you're trying too

I need to get away

But you want me close to you

I'm struggling


And your quicksand just keeps pulling me in

I'm tryna

I'm tryna

But I just can't seem to win
