No Returns

Roaming through life 

As if shopping for an unknown person

Not knowing what to get 

Unable to distinguish between what I want and need 

Uncertainty with everything that comes across my path 

Does this fit well or not at all 

Always defaulting to one question 

Will this make me happy 

Fill the void with stuff

In order to block the darkness created by the emptiness 

To often fill the void with substances over value  

A regretful purchase in life 

Some costs are too much of a burden to carry 

Many fall to the dark, created by that emptiness 

They are no longer heard from 

Their voices forever lost 

I rather prefer the emptiness visible to remind me of the dark 

A place we can lose ourselves  

Because of all the useless stuff
