I slept in the rain as twilight came,
I trekked muddy fields in the summer heat, and
I caught cold in the winter, shivering as I withdrew within myself

With each step, my mark is left
A footprint that tells the depth
Of an eternal sorrow
And no trace of happiness

Yet I drag my feet forward
In this black and white world
Where the slightest color is extinguished
Long before it may bloom

I have been torn to pieces
And scattered like a paper in the wind
Released to never come together again

The author's comments:
This piece can be interpreted just as the reader wishes. Anyone can relate to it, from someone who has been lonely at one point in his/her life and thought there was no way forward to someone who really has had a lot to go through just for survival.

When you get down to the core of it, it's about loneliness and abandonment/the effects it has on one's soul.

This poem is unique. It has its flaws but it gets the point across of what the author is trying to say
