To the Labyrinth in My Head

by a young man, age 13

What has caused your intricate paths,
Deceptive to those who enter?
Why do you lead me off the path to success?
Where have you led me in the trying times of life?
When will your corrupt amusement end?
Who else have you caused confusion
Within their own mind?
How have you not had guilt
In your knowingly mischievous games?

Is it only me you have tortured?
Is it the boredom in this seemingly simple life?
Have you led me to a garden of growth
Or a barren wasteland of loss?
Is this never going to end, or is it almost over?
Do you see this as a learning experience,
Or a way to kill me off?
You must not have guilt, do you?
