Being ~ Lulama Msomi


I'm not happy
I am not in my element
All my dreams and aspirations have tumbled down and are now amongst the dust

More that are intelligent, gifted and bright have been discovered
I have no talent-not even kindness
I'm hurt...broken
Life is hard but I keep living
Who am I?
Am I a number...the number?
Am I still myself at her purest self?
I'm lost ...without a true sense of direction.
I want to be happy.
I am not kind no I am not kind
My heart is not kind.

It's Complicated  

I don't know me
I don't even know what I want
I don't even know how to express my personal woes

I don't want to be like this anymore
I don't want to feel stuck

I don't know where to start.
