Lost in a world, that scares me to death,
Lost in a crowd, I'm losing my breath.
Lost as a boy, lost as a man,
I need to grow up, don't think I can.

Outstanding! ! ! Poem! So Moving! So Deeply Heart Touching! ! ! Thank You so much for sharing this write! ! !
it's low tone draws out my compassionate side but, the end tells me they don't stay down for long as they still hve the spark of grit and will inside of them. May their rise be quicker than the fall
Loaded with looseness is this creative, candid and compelling composition!
Beautiful, I hate that there is so much sadness, I just want to give you a hug.. but the strength is in the struggle and in Your ability to verbalize and identify your feelings. Such a beautiful poem.
lovely but very sad.. very good with words and expressing yourself i like it alot.
Fluid movement - nice rhythm - one is glad to arrive at the end stanza which clinches the poetic passion and overrides the man's deception. Perhaps it could be called a poem of Hope. Nice work. Panmelys
