Stuck in thought with mind in maze
Like water lapping on an arid shore
Watching the world as it bends and sways

Living life through plots and plays
Our tempest winds of this foul war
Stuck in thought with mind in maze

Procrastination until the end of days
We’ll soon see what’s in store
Watching the world as it bends and sways

A wandering soul's glimpse through tinted glaze
Living life lonely and poor
Stuck in thought with mind in maze

Suffocating breathe in a fiery blaze
Foul words spewing from every pore
Watching the world as it bends and sways

As if you are whom this poem portrays
In constant need to beg for more
Stuck in thought with mind in maze
Watching the world as it bends and sways.

      Shyron, thank you so much for reading my poem :) I'm sorry I just found your comment...I'm afraid I was only searching in the 30 days range. Figured it out though! Take care.

      Shyron, thank you for commenting and welcoming me to the site! Fortunately, the maze is not a trap, but a journey for my soul. In the midst of it all, I learn and grow, watching the world as it bends and sways.
