(Inspired by a newspaper article)
I’m on a long walk, all alone by myself,
Walking but not knowing where to.
I do, however know what I’m looking for:
Success, determination and ambition.
Temperatures less than mild
The freezing, howling wind
So strong and wild,
But that- never mind.
No shoulder to cry on,
My clothes so dirty
So ragged and tattered-
Why was I born?
I wish I had love, a family.
I’m all by myself- on my very own.
I wish I lived happily,
Instead of living this life-
A long walk alone.
I will take each day with Strength by my side,
No more tears and fears with each stride.
A path chosen for me, so bleak;
The power and success for I will seek!
