    Lost

    I feel so lost. I lost who I am. I used to like listening to music on Sunday morning while I drank coffee and read the newspaper.

    I feel lost, sad, alone,

    confused, afraid. I feel like I may be being immature but I really just dont know what to do with myself. I feel like im being outcasted by everyone. Maybe its me. Maybe Im giving off a bad vibe. It still feels horrible to be put aside, ignored. I listen to everyone's problems...

    I got lost looking for others,

    and now I just realize no one knows I have been gone for a while. I should have just stayed and be myself instead of looking for them when they aren't actually lost but hiding from me.
