My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans

Canto Nine

written by: Benjamin R Bray



From a dorm so small
To a space all my own
My bed, my desk, my closet
My room attached to my bathroom

Classes are harder
As to be expected
Year long friendships ending
Harder than ever expected

Do adults keep friends
The way that children do
A commitment to communication
Despite adulthood schedules

A time of transition
Made all the more difficult
By a population too great in number
To feel outstanding

Is it selfish to want
To be noticed
To be counted
To be known

Is part of this transition
The realization that I am one
Of far too many
To be remembered


Part nine of my autobiographical series of poetry.

Writing my way through life's journey; finding inspiration in the people who make me feel like I deserve to be here. In their unconditional love that I find what little strength I feel I have to face this overwhelming world. Through my writing I find escape in expression of anything I'm feeling at the moment the pen makes contact with the paper.
