Get Lost


People say get lost
So you decide to try
But when you go into the woods
You just come out and cry

People say get lost
So you try again
This time in a river
But it’s not a fitting end

People say get lost
So you try one last time
This time you close your eyes
And imagine the world you’ll find

People say get lost
And when you finally do
You can never return
From inside of you

You are lost inside yourself
Forever until the day
People say forgive me
And you feel the right way

One person did get lost
And could never find her way
She got lost writing this
And is still gone today
