Going nowhere

Moments of darkness,
Moments of fear.
Hiding in closets,
Shedding my tears.

Walls like a castle
Crumbling down.
Can't keep them up
With a happy song.

Why keep pretending
When nobody cares?
Why keep trying
When nobody shares?

Is it all worth it,
I ask myself?
When to go forward,
When to go back.

Lost within myself,
Without the will to shout.
With a whirling compass,
I am Going Nowhere

by Shuaib van Schalkwyk
