I am Lost
The deafening sound of a moving truck, when the keys are put inside,
I glance back one last time at the place I called home my entire life.
All the new things I have to adjust to, I can’t seem to remember it all,
My head is being over-filled with information that I don’t think I could ever recall.
I slowly walk in the hallways of the new high school that I must attend,
Feeling alone in a place unfamiliar where I’m the only one without a friend.
Breaking down and crying every day alone at night,
But by day I’m the new girl again, who forces smiles and looks alright.
I can’t shake off the feeling that I just don’t belong,
In a world so much larger than I, I feel like I’m lost
Everybody around me has a life, a light in which they shine,
But me, I am the one who’s groping around in the dark, desperately trying to find.
I try to hold onto the memories, of when I had friends by my side,
But the harder I clutch them, the faster they slip, and they fade right out of my mind.
So many times now, I wish that I could be, someone else instead
Other than a girl that has had her life been broken apart - nothing left.
I used to have a life, where I could just be me,
But now things are so much different, I am no longer free.
My life has been changed, and I can’t seem to adjust,
To this world of unknown, I am suddenly lost.
Lost in a time, in a world, in a place,
Where I move as slowly as thick, heavy paste.
I know that this time I will try to find a way,
Where I can find my way out, in the oncoming days.
No longer will I be as lost as I was,
I’ll hold my head high, and do what I must.
I will not be lost…
