"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin

I am lost in the world
I have made a wrong turn
I have found myself at a dead end
With no hope of a return

I find myself slowly falling
Always tripping then tumbling down
I scream as loud as my lungs provide
But even then no one can hear the sound

I feel like I am so dizzy
I feel so crazed in my head
All I can do is wonder
How to change the feeling of being dead

Something crucial is missing
Something that I just don’t know
I try to steady myself
I keep trying to stay with the flow

Everything begins to move
It all starts spinning so fast
The feeling is so complicated
But even then I want it to last

I feel so empty of myself
Instead the world is filled to my brim
I glance at something for a second
Not seeing anything for the light is so dim

Everything is just so overwhelming
Every moment just so new
I am alone, just by myself
And I don’t know what to do

The day I wrote this was actually really good. I was just thinking about how my life is just so perfect, and how there are so many people who are less fortunate.
