Where are you going

Where are you going

You don’t like anyone

You don’t even like yourself

You work hard to move forward

But you don’t know where you want to go

.

Where are you going

You long to settle down

But you just can’t stop

You can’t even pause

Like a bird has no legs to land

.

Where are you going

You dream about being intimate with a person

Someone understands you and accepts the real you

But you are afraid of trusting and giving

You are pessimistic but you desire a person to celebrate birthday with

.

Where are you going

You march forward

You fight against winds

You are so exhausted and lost

But you keep searching

A silly kid on a big planet

Where are you going
