I feel so lost, and out of place.
So restless and sleepless I lay.
In peace, I rest .Within my mind.
Dreams are so close, yet far from me.
It's not fair, but life's that way.
Living in fear, hoping one day, I'll be secure.
Though, I try not to lose faith.
There's always doubt.
I wish that it could change.
Maybe then, I'll find my place.
Before my time, slips away.
