My Future

My future is a place filled with darkness,

devoid of warmth, full of unhappy thoughts.

Everything is unmoving- 

pain, sorrow, suffering; a constant.

My future is a dark dark place. 

My chest tightens, unable to breathe,

A noose around my neck 

And I do scream, 

But no one hears. 

My future is a dark dark place.

I don't want this, 

I want my mother's kind smiles, 

my father's humble eyes telling me

Everything is going to be fine.

Let me turn around and run away, 

Away from this corrupt, dirty dystopia.

My body is frozen but my heart's racing, 

Mom, dad please take me home.

My future is a dark dark place,

Please don't force me to go there.
