Future

I don't know where I'm going.

Where my feet are heading.

The map is unreadable.

Fog covers my path.

The clock has stopped ticking

But time moves faster

as day turns to night

and night turns to years.

My brain sounds like

rain tapping on the window

when I try to work out

where I'm mean to be heading.

The years run to decades

yet the time is still missing-

the sun rises and sets

with no change to my ways.

How should I know

Where I want to go

when all I have known

is a life structured by others?

So few years into

this life that I lead

and I am expected

To know my own future.

The End
