The Faith of a Homesick Girl

Sat, 08/30/2014 - 20:21 -- lizzy37

I am here

I am lost

They say, “Free!”

But I weep, “cost”

 

It’s in the books

It’s in your eyes

I lack belief

You sell the lies

 

What good do you do

when I’m

Alone-

Despairing?

 

You aim for comfort

But the hold of my grasp

is wearing

Down

 

"Make it here!"

"Make it BIG!"

Don't disappoint

the sea of faces

the throng of shouts

 

I say Success,

the Will

to go on, 

my Resolve

is nothing:

 

For I am without

 

You.
