Mindstuck

My mind is playing tricks on me,
so darkness I keep seeing.
Desperately trying to live with purpose,
but dampened spirits I keep feeling.
Tupac said the world would rather pass by,
than to stop and see what makes one cry,
Funny, that’s where I thought my destiny lies,
in troubled souls and teary eyes,
but I can’t seem to keep mine dry.
My mind is playing tricks on me,
so emptiness I keep feeling.
So anxious about the future that the present- I keep leaving.
We spend life setting goals and making plans,
I’m so consumed by them nowadays that I am unsure who I am.
Education tricks us, builds us up then let’s us go,
clueless into the world of postgrads with no place to call home.
Constantly working towards a goal, who set the ideal?
I used to feel much freer, now all I do is feel.
