Lofty Goals

Poem By Nathan Schneider

Like skyscrapers loom in the sky
My goals tower above me, dead eye staring at me
The pressure is ridiculous and I’m sick of it
These lofty goals are ruining me and I can’t reach them
It doesn’t help that over half of them are impossible
I feel like I’m in a cage running in circles
In one of those padded rooms you see in asylums
Just so I don’t do something stupid
Maybe it’s time I make my lofty goals into something else
Maybe possible goals would be a good start.

No More Waiting

Life is not meant to be waited on
It’s meant to be taken advantage of
It’s a gift that shouldn’t be wasted or thrown away
Every breath we take is a display of a miracle happening

Lost And Found

I was lost out in the alleyway
Discarded, broken, on my last limb
I looked fine but inside I was hurting
I had the word lost burned in my heart

Sick Of Lying

I hate that smile I have
That fake one when I lie
It tears me up and lets me down
I’m just digging a bigger hole for myself

Wasteland Of Thought

There’s a place in your head
It’s were all your thoughts that don’t work
To crazy to make sense, roaming looking for reason
To different at the time or just not right

The Misfits

They comb the streets
Everyone sees them roaming
Looking for meaning or something to stand for
No future in sight only the present

Heart On Fire

My hearts on fire
Soon it’ll be ash, nothing left
If you don’t ever have that feeling, go and find it
I’d rather have my heart on fire for something
