Forsaken - Poem by Justin Fitzpatrick

Have you ever looked?
Across your hopes
To see a dream
A new reward

Looking is all we have
There is reaching
There is want
There is belief
There is agony

You can never catch what’s ahead of you
You cannot have what you see
To have that perfect life
Is something to never be

So accept your tears
And take your pain
Keep the memories
And worse
Keep the same…

The life you’ve always lived
The life that’s unfulfilled
A life that is loud
And never heard

Have you ever been forsaken?
Tossed aside like a bubblegum wrapper
Or have you realized?
That in the end you don’t matter

Can you miss each star?
Not spot yours in sight
Be forsaken
Every single night

It’s always so far away
And can never be grasped
The only true question is
How long does a forsaken last?
