I'm Still Shining

Sun, 04/02/2017 - 01:49 -- k8carr

I just can’t seem to get it right,

I put it off till I had time

But now I’m feeling overwhelmed

And more than that I’m scared as hell,

Scared that things are crashing down

Lonely far from all I know

Wand’ring feet and mind, losing focus

I’m not sure what I’m headed towards

Maybe I should look for a door,

A way out of the scared confusion

Trying to find my own conclusion

But lost in a sea of dreams

Things aren’t as they seem

And maybe though I’m flailing and scared

I don’t recognize that I’m prepared

I just can’t see that I’ll make it right

That in the end I’ll shine bright

Because though there is darkness all around

I’m still shining even now.
