Searching While Lost


Lost in a world I didn’t ask to be brought into.

Lost…confused…who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?

Wandering with the look of nothing on my face, because I know nothing of myself.

Confused because I am lost and lost because I am confused.

The questions I need answered I don’t get an answer, I barely get clues.

Searching for myself and got lost in the process.

Searching for myself in a world I am lost in.

Searching … lost… confused, I have no clue where to begin.

Lost… lost in this world but maybe I’ll be guided in the end.

Lost but still searching, I want to know myself within.

Curiosity and determination will fuel me until the end.

Lost in a world I didn’t ask to be brought into,

but live I will with a grin!

    This is really good to, and I do like this poem, All you can do in life anymore is Keep Moving Forward with a Smile, and keep learning from your mistakes and never make them again. You can’t let other people bring you down, and sometimes High School can make me feel like I am locked up and not cared for. The world can be so tough, but the best thing you can do is KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND LIVING LIFE THE BEST WAY YOU CAN. LIVE LIFE LIKE YOU WOULD WANT YOUR KID OR LOVED ONE TO LIVE IT. SET A GREAT EXAMPLE TO BE FOLLOWED. I WISH YOU ALL LUCK AND I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST!

    Sadly, that is a feeling I know too well. It’s very frustrating. But I’m glad to see that determination, to which you refer, shines through your poem and with that attitude, you can only move forward. You can be your best, you can achieve anything! Finding our way through life is a day-to-day task and sometimes it may seem a bit too much to handle, yet I have no doubt you will find your place in the world and you will be very happy! Great poem! Lots of love! 🙂

    That’s right- persevere! “Curiosity and determination will fuel me until the end” I think I just found my new life motto 🙂
