My mind was as blank as ever
The smile I wore
So forced and painful
That pounding voice in my head
Continuously telling me not to care
Why can’t I get rid of those messages?
Why couldn’t I make the people around me happy?
It was almost as if something was controlling me
Something that was full of selfish desire
The desire to obliterate anything that goes in my way
As school ended and summer ended
I finally realized
That during moments where I thought I couldn’t anymore
I still had people I could count on
Even the people you have a hard time with,
Can always lend you a hand
Life has good and bad times
Neither of them you can skip or ignore
I’m excited about what happens next
Because I’m feeling a lot better now.
