Courage Poem

Finding Yourself

Losing yourself is such a surreal feeling. You can't really explain it to others. You just know that something Like something just isn't right, like you're simply just not you. This poem is about realizing that there's something missing and doing something about it and tuning out the voices in your head that tell you to just give up. Because you know you're out there somewhere, you just have to keep on searching.

I'm on my way.
They may ask me, "Where to?"
Well, that I cannot say...
For even I have no clue.

I know it's rather far,
For it has to make me whole.
The road to the stars,
The path to my soul.

I must go alone,
But I'll miss you all, believe me.
I must travel into the unknown,
I must sail all of the seas.

You see, I've lost something of mine.
It's special and grand...
Magnificent in its design.
How I lost it is hard to understand.

What did I lose?
Well...I'm not exactly sure.
Please, my confusion you must excuse...
I just know I must find a cure.

I have a terrible disease,
The name of it escapes me.
But it stops your hair from blowing in the breeze.
It stops your heart from feeling free.

I think it's called "Lack of Adventure,"
But correct me if I'm wrong.
That is why I must go on this venture,
For my very essence I must prolong.

I think I may have left my heart somewhere
Or the part of me that believes....
I'll be back soon, I swear!
But for awhile, I must leave.

I know I'm on my way,
And though I may not know where
Myself I cannot betray...
For I know I'm somewhere out there.
