“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

This is just the first version of a poem I am writing in hopes of helping at least one person deal with feeling lost in life. Please give me feedback and ideas on how I can improve it.

AT NO COST

A soul that is empty and lost,
A smile which is fake.
A life with so many paths upfront,
But which one do I take?

It's simple, no?
Take the one that leads you
To where you want to go.

But it isn't as easy to those
Who have no desired destination.
The ones that just let life flow
Without any motivation.
The ones just like myself,
With no wishes or aspirations,
Like a book on a bookshelf
With pages as empty as our expectations.

It's soul-crushing
to choose a life path to follow,
When we wake up in the morning
With a heart that is hollow.

Everything seems pointless
And so out of our control.
Every day leaves us disappointed
As we fail to find our life goal.

Others seem to be chasing their dream.
Fighting, struggling, failing.
But even their struggles aren't as bleak
As the emptiness which in our lives is prevailing.

So take a second and appreciate
That you have something to fight for.

Life isn't as easy for us who are lost
And know our existence 
will only be wasted away at no cost.

    Oh, we can co-write a poem about the struggle of doing something with your life that you don't want to do. Do you like the idea? (Also, I'm sorry you have to work for a life goal you haven't set yourself)
