    In The Familiar Yet Alien Wrld Around Me

    I feel like my goals do not exist in this lost world, like I am circling around and there is no sign to show me the way out, like all those trainings I had do not apply to this world, And I have to smile and look confident so I don't scare others

    Sometimes I Feel Lost

    It can be when I'm in a big city and don't know the places I feel lost or sometimes I feel lost when I just don't know what to do.
