I Don't

I don’t know where I’m headed,

But I wanna know before I go

Which way is right? Which way is left?

In this world of temptation.

Sometimes being clear of who I am, is truly hard to comprehend.

A lost soul with no destination,

At least that’s what I tell myself.


I don’t know where I’m at, but I’m not going home.

My heart harmonizes with the piercing music,

As my world  becomes somewhat muted.

Suddenly a newfound peace as I start moving my feet,

I smile, and then giggle as the sweet juices takes over,

And the air gets harder to breathe.


I don’t know what I’m feeling, but I know it’s not pain.

Satisfaction in this wine that’s slowing hitting my brain.

To loosen up I check my phone and I then toss it aside.

No notifications, not even a ‘Hi’ to keep me preoccupied

Leave me alone with this bottle let me drink it with pride.

As my thoughts become more persistent and intensified.


I don’t know where I’m going, but my heart can’t stay still.

Running off with minds, that feel the same too.

No fear, no worrying as I start chasing my dreams.

I don’t know where I’m going, but I know I’m on my way.
