Neglected World

I utter
Words of regret
I mutter
Words of neglect

I’m anxious
‘cause I don’t feel right in this state of remorse…and I’m tainted by solitude
I’m nervous
‘cause I feel like a downright disgrace…and I’m filthy and nude
I’m upset
‘cause I don’t feel like I belong in this world…and I’m jaded
I’m in debt
‘cause I’ve been feeling like a total failure…and I’m manipulated

I flutter
Beyond the world’s reach
I surrender
I accept my fate…unable to screech

I’m afraid
‘cause I feel powerless in this world of wretchedness…spewing forth malice 
I’m prayed
‘cause I’m constantly waiting for Your mercy…full of spiritual bliss
Then again, there is no hope planted on this earth
There is no sign of peace.
No sign of mirth. 
No sign of ease. 

Signs of doom
Carries the clouds of gloom
And releases agony
And disparity
