I stand still, not moving forwards, nor backwards.
It is a crossroads, and the directions are many.
Which way do I go?
I close my eyes and will my body to just start moving.
It matters not which way,
As long as I am taking one step after another.
But nothing happens.
I am still.
It would seem that my resolve to stay
Is stronger than my will to carry on.
I am afraid.
Too many wrong turns have already been taken.
I do not know the way. Why won’t somebody tell me the way?
I see faces pass me by,
But still I remain,
Frozen as the rest of the world goes by.
I beg them, I plead with them,
But they don’t look back, the faces of yesterday,
The faces of today,
As they go on their way.
I am alone.
I am lost.
Do I stay here, in this place, and decay?
Please, somebody show me the way.
