Beyond The Sea

Beyond the sea
I know I can be
Everything I want to be

I crave for success
I only want the best
But i can’t see that happening
Not for me

I can see me falling
Before I even know
I can’t pick myself up
I’m scared
I feel alone

Whilst I sit
Whilst I’ll moan
I know

There is potential
Inside of me
The things I write
I know I see

Beyond these walls
There is more to me
I hide away
From life

It’s true
I knew
That inside
I’m walking a mile
In some one elses shoes
Never enquiring why?

    While this poem is full of feeling and well written, you need to get out of yourself and embrace the world. There are so many subjects that would widen your focus and bring out the depth of your talent. Read mine - The Bloom of Youth - and - My Heart is Native -
