Neutral expressionsI spend my days just growing older,
Letting all my anger smolder.
On the outside, what you see,
Is nothing like the real me.
I live my life and don my mask,
Keeping focused on this task
Of making sure society's seeing,
What they expect from a human being.
But how could anybody know,
That who I am is not what I show?
It's all an act designed to fool
Society's unbending rule:
Don't act strange or out of place,
Just keep a smile upon your face
Never let the others know
Your emotions Deep below.
A blank expression I maintain,
No matter if I'm feeling pain.
From years of this I am aware:
the world simply doesn't care.
On Life's MeaningEndlessly rushing, life has no pause,
Leaving me no time to ponder its cause,
Ceaselessly toiling each day just to gain,
All things required my life to sustain.
Were I to consider the goal of my life,
What would I discover beyond all my strife?
Is there greater meaning than what I can see,
Behind my existence and what makes me "me"?
Reflecting upon this, I remain deep in thought,
But I've never received the answers I sought.
These unanswered questions weaken my will,
And even today, these doubts seem to fill,
Each waking hour with an empty longing;
A wish and a hope for a sense of belonging.
In this huge world, I have no place worth staying,
So I fill the long hours with feverish praying,
For someone to care for, and someone to love.
Waiting for some sign there's someone above.
Maybe God's listening to my desperate pleas,
I'm waiting and watching, ready to seize,
Any opportunities that may arise.
But this cold dark silence leads me to surmise,
That each and every breath,
Leads me down
