in a constant search of
what to do,
where to go,
who to meet,
when to escape,
how to build a home.

why can't I feel like home?
idk. i just want to belong somewhere. feeling like i should be somewhere else every second ***** me up.

it broke me when you told me about the misery that you're in
it broke me that all you ask is some sort of comfort,
and yet i can't give it to you
it broke me that i can't go there and offer my shoulders,
whispering "it's gonna be okay"

eventhough you and i both know it's not gonna be
i hate misery.

they say, too much of anything is bad for you.

so when i realized i have been sad for too much and it slowly destroyed me,
i picked up my guitar, belted out every song i knew.


because, too much of anything is bad for me, right?
too much emotions is bad for me.


they say, get a healthy coping mechanism.


so i did
when i realized i have been sad for too much and it slowly destroyed me,
i picked up my guitar, belted out every song i knew.


because too much of anything is bad for me, right?
too much guitar developed calluses on my fingertips.


now that, should be a warning enough.


they say, too much of anything is bad for you


so when i realized i have been sad for too much and it slowly destroyed me,
i picked up my guitar, belted out every song that i knew.


but i forgot that too much of anything is bad for me.

until i finally realized,
all the songs lost its meaning,
and all there is to feel,
is my sadness.


but you know what they say, too much of anything is bad for you
but this time, i can not prevent it

so when i realized i have been sad for too much and it slowly destroyed me,
i surrendered
idk what i'm trying to say here. i'm sad. nothing works.

i think closure is achieved when,
you used to get hurt because of them,
and now you're wishing them the best

and you mean it.

have a good life.
i wish you well. good bye. thank you for showing me exactly what kind of person to avoid.

sssshhhh, did you hear?
it's an amazing day today!

so rise, freshen up!
open your window, light a cigarette,
brew yourself a cup of coffee (or tea, if you prefer that)
freshen up!

because whatever's in line for you today,
the world is out there, welcoming you with open arms!

so raise your glass,
let's toast to a new day ahead!

and when the night comes,
the stars and the moon are going to look down at you smiling,
congratulating you for doing great today!
i love you all, you're all doing great! idk what this poetry is about **** but aye have a great day everybody!

two
one, two, one, two, one, two, one
which do you choose?

one, two, one, two, one, two, one
so many laid out in front of you

one, two, one, two, one, two, one
choose me?

one, two, one, two, one, two, one
you finally chose one

one, two, one, two, one, two, one
as a mediocre two,

i will never get chosen.
and that is okay. i wish you all the best in life, you deserve it!
