Dan Brown

Lost

Lost in a world, that scares me to death,
Lost in a crowd, I'm losing my breath.
Lost as a boy, lost as a man,
I need to grow up, don't think I can.

Lost as a person, can't find my way.
Lost in life, every day.
Lost in worry, who am I?
All my life, I've lived a lie.

Lost to kindness, lost to love,
Lost in a sky, like a new-born dove.
Lost in thought, which I shouldn't do,
It winds me up, I can’t get through.

Lost to comfort, all kind words,
Lost to advice, it isn't heard.
Lost to those who really care,
All these people, always there.

Lost in me, I need a break,
Lost in wonder, which road to take?
Lost in a place I don't know well,
Where are you now? There's no one to tell.

Lost here, all alone,
Lost apart from the mobile phone.
Lost still, there are no calls.
I'm struggling alone, to break these walls.

Lost in mind, lost in soul,
Lost memories, they're just a hole.
Lost family, lost mate,
Gone now, yet I'm full of hate.

Lost in a straight world, and I am gay,
Lost now, for what to say,
Lost in boredom, think I'll leave.
There's a lot in life I need to achieve.

    it's low tone draws out my compassionate side but, the end tells me they don't stay down for long as they still hve the spark of grit and will inside of them. May their rise be quicker than the fall

    Beautiful, I hate that there is so much sadness, I just want to give you a hug.. but the strength is in the struggle and in Your ability to verbalize and identify your feelings. Such a beautiful poem.

    Fluid movement - nice rhythm - one is glad to arrive at the end stanza which clinches the poetic passion and overrides the man's deception. Perhaps it could be called a poem of Hope. Nice work. Panmelys
