All love is a tragedy...

Cement (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 23

What's next?
Where do I go from here?
Now that it's over
Where should I appear?
I feel like I have no place
All this time and not enough space
That part of my journey is over
I passed the test
But what do I do with all the rest?
Life doesn't give you instructons
No manual or handbook
But I need to know where I should look
Because now I feel lost
In the middle of nowhere
I'm not even sure if I should even care
I took the risks
Came out on top
So why am I here at the bottom of the rock?
So many familiar faces
Lets me know that I don't belong here
I did what I was supposed to do
So why am I not up there?
It wasn't enough and no one ever told me
And now I'm stuck, not where I should be
Cemented into failure
Like it's my new name
Hard work is optional
It's all about the game
Who knows who
Who came from where
I guess that's the reason why I'm not up there
Years of doing the very right thing
Showed me the pain life can bring
So put my face in wet cement
I'll hold my breath and let it dry
Let it freeze the tears that I cry
Because I'm ready to move onto something more
What should I do?
I'm really not sure
So I'll lie in here in cement
Give me a while
I'll tell you how it went
