Steps in the wrong direction

Steps in the wrong direction

A Poem by al25

I'm taking steps in the wrong direction

So don't think that your getting closer

When I'm pushing you all away


They say I'm foolish for choosing this way

But all I want is to wake up

I've been down on my knees

Looking for something else

But it keeps on getting further


I'm taking steps in the wrong direction

So don't think that I'm looking your way

When all I'm doing is looking away


Dont't like your faces

I try to forget

Looking for some kind of miracle

Waiting for it to change my ways

But all I'm doing is breaking into pieces


I'm taking steps in the wrong direction

So don't think that Im thinking about you

When all I'm doing is wishing for the tide to take me away


Do I have to keep this pace

To try to keep you all satisfied

I look your way

But all you do is give me hope

When nothing is ever going to change


My thoughts echo

With no where left to go

Pain and happiness are just the same

I don't even feel anymore


The only pleasure I know

Taking steps in the wrong direction

This is really good, i sense some sadness and many of us take steps in the wrong direction, sometimes we can't correct that and hope the next direction takes us where we want to be.
Well done!

Not trusting ourself is a familiar feeling you have described well, as we learn to think at a more profound level we can convince ourselves of anything,

Writing out those feelings like this sometimes is the only thing that gives us pleasure. Some days we don't know what we want or how to get where we think we want to go. Well done.
