My Adjectives

I Am lost, scared and lonely.

I dunno where I am going to, where I came from.
What I am looking for or if I will recognise it when it surfaces.
I dunno who to ask for help.
I see no one to question.
I see no signs, no options to choose from.
I am at a point that has many paths leading to different places.
What is at the end of the road I do not know?
Will it be something I would like or what makes me worse?
Something to clear my way or more lost than ever?

I am scared of everything.
Everything about life, love, family, school.
Just everything.

What life brings, unsure if I am prepared for it.
What love is, if I will experience true genuine love.
Family that is imperfectly perfect, not disoriented.
And of course, passing my grades wella.

I feel so alone.
Alone in this World.
No one to talk to,
No one to share my feelings with,
No one who understands.
