when i was younger
i got lost
i let go of their hand
just for a second
i was distracted by something
next thing i know
i’m alone
standing there by myself
with crowds of people
passing by
i got strange looks
from people i don’t know
expressions i can only tell are sad
i felt something is lodged in my throat
tears building up
my eyes started to swell
“where are they?”
no one even tried to help
i was a small kid back then
years later
i found myself
lost, again
no one will ever help
one thing i’ve learned
is that when you’re lost
do not move
stand still
stay where you are
until someone finds you
that is when someone is looking for you
i’m doing all that still
but right now
i’m not so sure
if someone will ever come for me
