What happened?
What happened to the society we used to have?
What happened to lovers still being lovers til the end?
What happened to having fun without it being illegal?
What happened to the only hurt we had was falling down when running while playing hide and seek?
What happened to the smiles not being fake?
What happened to finger panting?
What happened to everyone getting to live who they want without being terrorized?
What happened to society loving everyone equally, not just to the extent of their race?
What happened to girls getting to love themselves before others?
What happened to girls being called beautiful and lovely, not ***** and ****?
What happened to boys being called handsome and sweet, not ***?
What happened to boys getting to be Mommas Boys without being called a loser?
What happened to the world we grew up in?
What happened to us wanting to grow up?
Oh yea...
Society changed the world, our perspective, and us.

I love you.
Everything will be okay.  


I loved you
Everything was okay

You're saying everything in past tense now... You don't think everything will be okay..at least.  

Not anymore.

People deal with loss differently
Some move on
Some cry
And some...can't live anymore
Some **** themselves because that person isn't there anymore

People are waiting for their loved ones in the hospital room one moment
Then another...They're in their closets picking out something black to wear

People sit in silence
People sit on their bathroom floors so depressed they don't know what to do or think anymore

People hide it
The people that love them don't know what's going on.

Then...they have a loss.

Anxiety.  

Anxiety is not a friend you want at your door giving you a high five and is excited to spend the night.
Anxiety is that skin scratching, pencil tapping, binge eating friend that appears like snow on a summer day.  
It comes out of nowhere. And sometimes you know you're about to start breathing heavily and wanting to lie down.
It's the feeling you get
when the love of your life says "Can we talk?"
when you lay in bed and you hear sounds
when you're in the hospital room and someone comes out with tears in their eyes towards you.
Anxiety is not that Christmas present you've been wanting all year...

have you  ever loved someone so much you'd take a bullet for them?
do anything for them?
die for them?
well sometimes you turn out like Bruno Mars and they won't do the same for ya.
or maybe...
they would.
sometimes us as people give others our hearts without even acknowledging that they could throw it away in seconds.
Some of us think they would never do that to us.
And some of us just don't think at all.
Be careful who you give your heart to...otherwise you'll end up on the bathroom floor, crying your eyes out and hurt.

Love the people you’re around.
You never know when they’ll just disappear.
Cherish the moments you’re in...you’ll never know when they’ll become memories.

Over generations we’ve become a broken society
In the 50’s we had Elvis and Poodle Skirts
In the 60’s we had Grease and Viewfinders
In the 70’s we had Dancing Queen and Jumpsuits
In the 80’s we had Billie Jean and Leg Warmers
In the 90’s we had Beanie Babies and Gameboys
Now we have people who run into fountains while on their phones
Now we have people scared for their life because of gangs and guns
Now we have people being shamed for their bodies and the number of suicides are awful
Now we have a society that expects us to be perfect...when really we just need to go back to the times where people got along better and have fun
