Poem: Trying

I tried to make a move, but my feet are staying still.

The shaking of the grounds is holding my hands.

I want to smile and laugh, but it will not be free.

The words of others are hidden deep within my soul.

I hear the yes, but I also hear the noes.

When will the worries about the next chapter leave the hopes behind?

I am just trying to find the happiness that I was promised, but it seems like I do not deserve.
