Floundering

Expressing my current thoughts via poetry.

Sometimes I feel utterly lost.
Like I’m just floating through life without a purpose.
I strive to be a good person, but am I accomplishing this goal?
Sometimes I wonder.

I feel like the world is unbelievably vast, and I’m just an insignificant blip on the radar.
But I’m still trying.
Trying to discover what I want.
Trying to discover what I need.
Trying to discern who I am.

All I know is that I’m tired.
Tired of choosing negativity and seeing the dark side of things everywhere I look.
It’s time to shake things up a little.
It’s time to make a change.

I may not know what the future holds, but I know that I have a say in the matter.
I am choosing to focus on the positives.
I’m choosing kindness.
Because I’d rather be a small shining light in the world than contribute to the neverending darkness.

I am a 38 year old dreamer who is living with Scoliosis. I’m an avid reader and a total nerd at heart. I like to share my thoughts on things.
