a glass box.

Have you ever felt trapped in a glass box while everyone’s success surrounds you? You’re stuck while everyone reaches for the sky. All you can do is watch. You try convincing yourself that you will be that person one day, but years go by and you realize you were lying to yourself. You are still…

the bottom of the ocean.

The bottom of the oceanIs where I reside.Dark and scaryWith creatures lurking.It gets lonely down hereWhere my only friend is a fish.I might just give in to the creatures.The creatures waiting to attack,They smell my fear.They love it.I might give them what they want.I don’t know what else to do.I’m in their habitat.I’m lost with…

The Ambiguity of Life

Life is ambiguous. It can be my worst nightmare Or it can be a fairytale. There’s not much I can do, But try reaching the Beast to my Beauty Or the Prince Charming to my Cinderella. Knowing my luck, The best I’ll do Is find the Joker to my Harley Quinn.

Expectations of Today

As the leaves crunch beneath me, And the Fall weather begins to linger, I think of how I let myself down. I thought I’d be going to college, I thought I’d have my license, I thought I would be someone. But I’m still lost in the maze. The maze we call life, And I don’t…
