Lost His Way

Posted on Apr 23, 2012


Alone he sits at home
Wondering where it went wrong?
How he lost his way
Where he could’ve gone?

Tired, so tired is he
Of all the fighting in life
He just wants to run away
Away from life to hide

Conforming isn’t his way
Shuffling along in invisible chains
But invisible he becomes anyway
A number melting into the rain

He takes a battering from all
Family, friends, lovers
Keeping his thoughts inside
Deep, so deep, it smothers

He wants so much to be free
But stuck in his own hell
But lost his way pleasing others
His soul he did stupidly sell

Hope is all he has left
But each day is the same
Deeper he does sink
Only himself to blame
