No need for forced smiles and friendships
when behind those smiles and relationships lies sorrow, guilt and regret.
We wonder at times how the person we are today differs from yesterday
Was it all just an illusion?
A mere figment from our imagination?
We didn’t sign up for fake friends, unfulfilled relationships and expectations.
so what changed and how?
Did we settle for safety and security instead of shooting for the stars?
or maybe this journey isn’t a race and we can be all these things
like being anxious, sad, happy and satisfied all at the same time
and that’s okay too.
