Forgotten

I am a soul
In a temporary body
Living on borrowed time
Living on a nickel and a dime
Striving, struggling, and earning
The cycle goes around and around
My life is something to remember
Or maybe it’ll just sink into oblivion
Generations after, will they remember my name?
Or will I be just another entity,
Tucked and pushed away into someone’s distant memory?

Aside

I Am Free

I am nothing but a soul trying to find peace
I have been beaten down to no return.
My mind is fragile, my confidence scarred
Think positive, but all I produce is negative
I feel as if I wander looking for something
Something that I cannot find
I search I search I search
I crawl, I walk, I run
Happiness, I guess that’s what I’m searching for
Or maybe it’s peace,
Hope, Or love
Love for myself once again
Love for me and my being.
I am locked. Trapped like an animal.
I try to claw my way out
But instead I end up being buried alive
I am suffocating.
It is debilitating, crushing.
Why oh why did this happen to me?
I suppose it was just a twist of fate.
If only I could see a little light
And breathe a little bit of fresh air
Maybe then this feeling will wash away
And I can finally say

I am free.
