I feel stuck

I feel as though

I have nowhere to go,

Nothing to do,

And nothing to say.

I don’t want to be 

Some great change-maker

Or the next Greta Thunberg, 

Starting a  global movement in my teens

Yet I also want to

Do more and 

Actually fo something

With my life

I want to smile,

Help others, 

And not be so 

Utterly tragic.

“Have hope,”

They say,

As if we are

Not facing war,

A pandemic, 

And a climate crisis.

I know how 

Depressingly gray 

I am making 

Life seem,

But I feel as though

I am David facing

One million Goliaths,

But I only have one stone.

I am stuck 

And feel as though

I cannot do anything

To fix this mess

Which has been 

Thrusted upon me.


I feel as though 

I am stuck

And no one is

Coming to help me.
