Stop and Stare

stop and stare
at the images of life
passing me by
wishing I could follow
and be on my way
thinking I’m moving
towards my dreams
but I go nowhere
my heart beats
with discouraged
thunder
I know everyone gets scared
when life threatens
to crush their soul
but I wish to become
what I can’t be

stop and stare
into the mind
of life’s despair
trying to make something
out of nothing
starting to wonder
why I’m here, not there
the road is just
beginning
but already
I wish to be at
the end
I’ll do anything to get
what’s fair
but justice does not
shine her face
upon me today
and I fail
at what I really need; so

stop and stare

[yes, this is based on the OneRepublic song. I was listening to it at the time I wrote this. This poem pretty much sucks but meh.]
