Lone Leper

Written by: Melissa Ross

Feeling out of control,
I need to discover the role,
I must play in society,
Shake the anxiety,
In my chest,
I should feel blessed,
But I am a lone leper,
In this life;
Strife;
Is all I can envision,
Like every collision,
Of each emotion,
All this commotion,
Inside,
Can’t abide,
With my will to continue.
