Poem: Feeling Stuck.

Invisible walls,

Unseen chains.

You push and pull,

But it’s all in vain.

_____________________

Frustration builds,

It starts to choke.

The future you planned,

Now seems like a hoax.

_____________________

You try to run,

But there’s lead in your feet.

Your lungs deflate,

You want to retreat.

_____________________

You clench your fists,

And spit out curses.

Your head starts to pound,

Like galloping horses.

_____________________

They say it’s for a while,

Things will get better someday,

But at this very moment,

It doesn’t feel that way.
