I don’t know how I got here
or how I will get out.
I’m lost in this forest of fear,
wooded with insecurity and doubt.
As far as my eyes can see,
there is nothing but brown and green,
the colors of these tall trees
creating this camouflaged scene.
My mind can’t stop racing
and my heart won’t stop its thumping.
My feet keep pacing,
and my throat feels like it’s clumping.
I am locked deep inside
This natural prison.
With nothing for a guide
until the sun has risen.
When the darkness falls,
I am left in constant suspense.
Trapped inside of these walls
With no defense.
An escape I may never find.
I could be locked in here forever.
Both lost and confined
in this constant endeavor.
