If you see me
And I look lost
It’s because I am
Being lost is nothing new
Nor will it ever be outgrown
But this time your forest has tricked me
This whole time I thought your trees were giving shade
But they’re actually keeping me in the dark
It has been a long three months, but I’m somehow surviving
You are in my sight always but to you I am a ghost
There has been no rescue effort
No search party
Because you cannot save what you do not know needs saving
Too far gone is the path in my past
But too blurry is the path that leads out
So I accept that I am here for a while
But progress is no stranger
Your navigation is no longer my lifeline
Finding the way out is a responsibility that now belongs to me
After one too many circles
I will get out.
