Powerful piece….. Few people really know who they are…

surreptitiouspoet

Labelled an extrovert by others,
Yet an introvert in my own head.
Unable to believe those who say
A bright future lies ahead.
 
Between a rock and a hard place,
Stuck with a job I’d rather avoid.
Incapable of pursuing my dreams,
Fearful of being unemployed.
 
And then there’s the elusive girl,
So clear in my mind’s eye.
Who fails to materialise,
And I can’t fathom why.
 
Confused by society’s rules,
And by why I’m losing the game.
When all I seek is happiness and love,
Not fickle fortune and fame.
 
Emotions fluctuating daily,
From hope to outright despair.
Hunting for my clothes,
Now that life has stripped me bare.
