a poem? a vent? a hello? or a goodbye?


"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?" 
And isn't that the golden question; 
The question I've heard all my life - 
The question about life asked in life. 


It's an irony I can't explain;
A joke with no laughs made,
It's funny when you know - 
You know that you've decayed. 


It's a line of staying alive, 
But I can't make it this time; 
It's all been too much - 
It's going by in a rush. 


And if I don't brush my hair,
That's my sign of not having a care - 
A care about you or me,
Or about the world I haven't seen.


And don't waste your tears crying;
I never wanted you to see me dying.

    Thanks for sharing this piece of writing. Do not let it be a goodbye. Unless you are saying goodbye to something toxic (like people or habits.) But not a tragic goodbye. Life is difficult and there are many slumps. Life is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs. "If you want the rainbow you must have the rain," as they say.

    I hope you will find something to pick up your spirits. You are worthy, and loved, and life will not be dismal forever.
