LOST SOUL

I am a lost soul floating in a dark void hoping to be saved,

I am what today brings to you from what yesterday has made,
I am the seed of today and tomorrow like a flower I await to bloom,
I am what u failed to keep better yet u swept me away with your broom,
I am what u cast out to the dark hoping I’d meet my doom,
I am what no one else is but my self,
I am but an unfound pearl in the bottom of the ocean locked in a shell,
I am what most of my peers are running from and that’s themselves,
I am a lonely young person standing on my own like an empty shelf,
I am what I am because of how u perceived me,
I am a book of wisdom yet you see no use for me
At the end of it all I am but what is disliked for being true and loved for being fake
