On the wrong path

A poem written to put forward my current feelings of not belonging, always being anxious, and quite alone. I hope you enjoy it!

When you feel so fed up 

It's like having a half empty cup

You look at things the wrong way 

We often lead ourselves astray.


You locate a lesser path

One where you feel dismay's wrath

Forever moving in the same direction

Longing for solitude and affection.


I've been on this path for so long

Even the sheer beauty of birds song

Seems impure and corrupt

As sorrow within threatens to erupt.
