It is disheartening to witness
Skins with clean slates
Being broken
Stained
Or
Tarnished
And
Growing up
Dangerously damaged
With a past
That is never
In the past
Just a continuation
Into the present
Taking over their future
Making them runners
Running
From everything
From something
From someone
Even their shadow
And
It is unfortunate that
They would rather go any direction
Even if it is the wrong direction
To get away from it
It
Perhaps being
The idea of commitment
The sense of responsibility
The possibility of unconditional love
And
Yes
The concept of happiness
Because they rather be miserable
And
Punish theirselves for no reason
Other than fear of what
Can be
Would be
Or
Should be
And
It is the most despairing thing to watch
And
Being engulfed in helplessness
Is the worst
Because all they have to do is
Go with optimism
Instead of pessimism
And
Travel beyond their boundaries
Beyond the unknown
To experience
A different kind of life
What is missing from their life
