The Best Years of My Life
I struggle with genuine smiles and meaningful conversations,
I thrive in introspection and chronic hesitations.
I trip over connections and comfortable sensations,
I seek out understanding and gut-hitting resonations.
I struggle with validation and self-appreciation,
I fight with self-destruction and self-deprecation.
I overcome these things on good days,
But they overcome me on bad days.
I struggle with understanding this, my emotions and fluctuations,
But know this is all a stage, a season, so I pray for appreciations.
And with this hope to overcome,
Until kingdom come.
