Weakness

I collapse to my knees;
un-sure of what this world has for me to see.
Destined to figure out,
what exactly that may be.

Time can only tell which direction
I shall go. Until then,
I face the facts of the unknown.

Scared of what will happen next,
I'm ready to take the steps,
of this undeclared test.

Corruption and chaos,
undesired by most,
so I cling on to what I call hope.

I look into the mirror,
and see the woman in front of me.
I ask myself, "What do you want to be?"

The words linger in the air,
leaving the question,
"Does anyone care?"

Unanswered questions are always the result,
I cannot fathom why this isn't my fault.

Weakness is apart of me that sings,
a fear that is glued atop my butterfly wings.

Unable to move,
paralyzed by pain
I often wonder if i'm going insane.

Time can only tell,
which direction I shall go.
But until then..
I face the facts of the unknown.

I can't believe that that's your first poem, the imagination is very beautiful, it flows perfectly and you stuck to your end rymes, wich is very professional.

Thank you! The feedback is greatly appreciated. I was shocked that this was my first poem as well. I was literally reading things outloud trying to see what word ryhmed with what. haha :D
