The Journey

Long walks at sunset,
Crowds and confusion,
Grace your presence,
A beautiful presence;

You’re losing it,
I can definitely tell,
Crawl beyond this hole,
Run far from this hole;

Tell them it’s okay,
They’re losing distance,
Find you to blame,
You’re always to blame;

The hell you’re in,
We have all been,
You’ve come so far,
You’ll go so far;

Just don’t let go,
On your journey,
Keep pushing forward,
Keep moving forward;

It’s only four years,
And when it’s over,
They’ll wish they were you,
That they lived like you;

It seems to be speaking of a certain time period in life that poeple blame you for the things you're doing that they will always blame you, but maybe what they're blaming you for isn't something bad but maybe misunderstand, and you keep going on to finsih the jouney... Or at least that what I thought, a very good poem:) Please read and comment on some of mine

Thanks! :) I love your interpretation. I actually wrote it about my best friend. It could apply to anyone in high school or any age really dealing with something difficult or they aren't really going with the "in crowd". It is a way to say that nothing in high school will matter when it's over. It's good to be different and it will pay off once people get into the real world, you know? I find that it can relate to me as well, though. I will definitely check your work out :)
