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.
