I Am Lost!

by Asiru Abdullahi aged 18

I am lost in the maze,
Bemused by its complex networks,
Of ceaseless twist and turns,
An harbinger of uneasiness.

I am lost in the woods,
Of comparable gigantic bamboos,
Resting rooted roots beneath the earth,
Not knowing the right route to the world beyond.

I am lost on an island,
No raft nor boat to sail with,
Just loitering and living, surviving,
The beastliness of its merciless harsh weather.

I am lost in thoughts,
Each with its repercussions,
Swarming higgledy – piggledy,
Thoughening options and choice making.

I am lost in the world,
Of rights and wrongs,
Whichever path I choose seems wrong,
Still searching for the truth amongst myriads beneath the sun.

I am lost to the world,
Each with his or her burdens to solve,
As the day turns dark,
Ceaselessly till eternity.

I am lost to myself,
Undecided,
Muddled cum frustrated,
Still plying jumbled paths for a way by the roadside.
