Missing Youth

Cover Image

My life is full of endless decisions

The stress is taking me over slowly

Between old friends there now lay divisions

As I age I begin to feel lonely


Where my life is going I am unsure

And everyone is always seeming fake

I feel surrounded by constant pressure

For it is not cookies that the kids bake


My smile has not been very genuine

I tell you, this is not another lie

For I feel so dark coming from within

As the tears fall from my once pretty eyes


So here is one for my beautiful youth

I miss it and I promise it's the truth
