How Can I Grow Up If Nobody Taught Me How To?

Poetry By: zadudet1
Memoir



I keep trying to overcome this feeling, but it's a lot harder than most people realize. It really hard to feel good when everything looks so bleak.

How Can I Grow Up If Nobody Taught Me How To?

I can't

Breathe.

Lost

And alone.


I'm almost out

Of school,

But

I'm not

Ready.


Can't drive,

No job,

No money

And I don't know

What to do.


Lost,

So lost.

No one wants to

Guide me,

So I wander

Lost and

Alone.


Won't anyone

Show me

The way.

Doesn't anyone

Care

About me.


Last night

I had a

Panic attack.

It terrified

Me.


I felt so

Scared

And I kept

Twitching.


My breath came too

Fast

And it hurt

My insides in a way

That's hard

To describe.


Doesn't anybody

Care?

Is there anyone

Who

Can help?

Am I

Alone?


Every time

I try

To grow up,

Something gets

In my

Way.

No one

Helps.


I need my

License,

But no one

Cares.

They say they

Do,

But

They don't


I hold

My hands out

Like

A beggar,

But

No one

Stops.

There is no

Charity.


So

I continue

Down this long

And scary

Road

With a

Realization.


I am

Lost

And alone

I will always

Be

Lost and

Alone.
