I am an individual lost in a sea of others.

Every day I rise to filter in-between

classes of few and many,

searching for a sense of understanding or belonging.

I am an individual lost in a sea of others.

The hometown I left behind has little

memory of me

except for those whom I call family.

The friends,

for which I have few

carry only remnants of what I was when I

left high school and see

only snapshots of life as they

scroll through social media.

I am an individual lost in a sea of others.

I pass by different people each waking moment of

my life and each one of them cares

not

but for the occasional passing smile filled

with empty courtesy

leaving me helpless but to awkwardly return it.

I am an individual lost in a sea of others.


Or so I believe.

Or so I believe

until one day someone comes along and tells me that they miss me.

Or so I believe

until one day someone comes along and tells me that they need me.

Or so I believe

until one day someone comes along and tells me that they love me.

I am an individual lost in a sea of others.

But maybe one day I will

wash ashore and

find that someone else is as

lost as I.

I am an individual lost in a sea of others.

But soon,

I will find my way home.

kpop enthusiast. bubble tea is my coffee. forever lost in my thoughts.
