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!
