A Poem: How Did I Get Here?

How did I get here?

she questions inside

how did I get here

how can I hide?


She found her place

in a lonely space

full of masks and clowns

while living downtown. 


Reality was a blur

everything was grey

never had she planned 

for such a day. 


The greys turned to black

laughs turned to cries

she often thought

of ways to die. 


She was all alone

and out of touch

thinking of it 

all too much. 


How did I get here? 

She questions inside

How did I get here?

How can I hide?


She was almost depleted

nearly extinct 

as she forced herself

she was on the brink. 


It wasn’t her

it never was

but she was there

just because.
