Darkness

Do you ever just feel darkness

and the desperate hope

to find a reason

for what you do?

 

The prompt decisions

the overthinking nights

we never seem to be happy

no matter how hard we try.

 

We are a generation

of broken hearts and dreams

chasing things we know

are never going to be.

 

Wrong or right

satisfied or not

we put up a fake smile

and move on.

 

Good for nothing, a loser

is what you feel

even though you are talented

everyone makes you feel as if you aren’t unique.

 

There is light at the end of the tunnel

but what if there is no end?

What if it is just us

clinging on in search of hope in despair?

 

Yet again, who cares

so we put up a fake smile again

and walk away

hoping for tomorrow to be a better day.
