Failure - Poem by Courtney Redmond

My feet were pacing
As I ran from it all
I need to escape the pain I feel
My mind hurts from memories
I wish not to see
There is no solitude for me to feel,
Everything is clattered
I need the darkness to find me.
Living in the light has made me blind
I want to search for hope,
But how can I when
Concrete holds my feet down.
Just slipping and sliding
Along the paths of life
Nothing I do will change it
If I break it all apart
Then I chip at the aura of me
My personality will leave me
There I go again,
I’m lost in my mind
The mind, of a failure.
