I Don't Know

I Don't Know

A Poem by Ricky Campbell

I don't know
Its been too long since I ever have
Past dictating my decisions now
Causing me to hesitate with the slightest of things

I don't know
Acquaintances would be on me left and right
Attacking almost everything they see
Going after everything that makes me feel good

I don't know
I feel like now I can't act like myself
Really I haven't acted like myself in so long
I'd be surprised to see who I really am

I don't know
I really think that its time to move on
Go out in the world and meet new people
Detach myself from everything I'm attached to now

I don't know
It sounds easy to do it
But is it really easy making friends?
I don't want to be left alone with myself

I really don't know
I think its time to find something new
But it's so hard to let go of the past and move forward
And I'm afraid people won't come with me along the way
I'm stuck in my head, in this pit of my thoughts
Guys I'm telling you, I really don't know what I want to do today.

I don't know who said that it was easy to make friends, but I do know they were a damn liar, haha.
You're still very young and the opportunities should be fruitful!
Sadly, it seems to get a little harder as we age, I suspect it has something to do with the inflated
cynicism, haha. Either way, sometimes it just helps to get the anxiety out with words.
A good literary vent, so to speak!
Thanks for sharing :)

Doubts that are very well penned. Rhyme schemes sometimes appear too main stream and your style seems to give justice to it. Kudos! Thank you for sharing.

The questions of life are many. Life is a roller coaster ride. I like the flow of thoughts and the open ending. Life is a new journey everyday. Thank you for the excellent poetry.

Don't be afraid to take a leap into the unknown, I say this because i was that way and better choices instead of none are the way to go, balance caution with considered moves ahead :)

Dilemma of everyday can often bog you down to dysfunction. However the best way to deal such situation is to go and explore yourself.

Not knowing something can give you an advantage...Like when you don't get attached to a human or pet and they die...or you loose them. you wont be sad or empty

Maybe you need a good nights sleep and when you wake up, make sure you get up on the right side of the bed instead of the wrong side, Valentine

i love this poem, you know some times its better not to know. life will surprise you every day and not knowing whats coming is the best feeling. life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will get.
