Lost

Iím lost in a sea of faces
All in a hurry to get somewhere
I donít have a sleeve of Aces
Or tricks getting me out of here
 
I donít recognize my reflection
This stranger in the mirror
But further inspection
Doesnít make it clearer
 
Who am I?
What am I doing?
Where am I going?
I donít know anymore
 
My mask is always smiling
Regardless of the tears beneath
You wonít see me crying
Or clenching my teeth
 
Why do I feel so hollow?
Which path do I follow?
 I have no reason to feel so sad
My life is really not that bad
I feel like Iíve lost my mind
Always searching, unable to find  
 
Can I go back in time?
Possibly change things?
Or go to a simpler time?
Is someone pulling the strings?
 
I donít feel as if I belong
The world doesnít feel like home
I try constantly to be strong  
But Iím starting to lose hope
I pray that Iím wrong
How does one cope  
On a downward slope?
 
My mouth moves without my consent
Itís as if Iím on autopilot  
Robotically living while I internally lament
Tell me how to stop  
 
Show me how to enjoy life
Teach me how to be happy
Demonstrate overcoming strife
Fill me so I am not empty
 
Show me the way
To something new
Something beautiful
Tell me, will you?
