Just a hint on how I feel lately.

I feel stagnant, I feel trapped,

as if one of these days I'm going to snap.

What is happening to me?

Do I even know?

Why do my spirits seem so low?

I'm a mess, or so I feel,

is there a wound that's yet not healed?

I feel it in my bones,

I feel it in my hands;

the sadness has now grown

out of my command.

I'm not happy with my life,

even though I should?

I haven't met the goals, I really thought I would.

I am nearly twenty-six with very little to my name,

what happened to the dreams?

What happened to the fame?

An unfinished book and a long forgotten one,

the chances I took and all my hopes are gone.

My frustration increases at the pace of my weight,

I'm losing myself, I'm losing to fate.

Can I fix this?

But how?

And why can't it be now?

I'm losing control---I'm losing it all.
