You tell me that you’re hopeless,
You want your life less than your death,
But if you jumped into a pool right now,
I know you’d hold your breath.
So I know that it’s not hopeless,
But that your hope’s just hard to find,
And if I showed you all that you can become,
I know you’d change your mind.
You might have hit rock bottom,
But it’s the perfect place to start,
Where the only thing you can hear,
Is the beating of your heart.
You have to almost lose it,
To remember what you’ve had,
And that there have been a share of good times,
Mixed in between the bad.
So don’t wait for the ending,
Until your last breath starts to leave,
Before you finally remember,
How much you love to breathe.
So breathe in, breathe out,
These moments which seem like eternity
Are but a clockwork in a whole,
Their grass may look greener from your side…
I suggest you focus on watering your own grass,
Helping yourself from these mind games to surpass…
For nothing is permanent in this universe my dear,
This too shall pass.

Thank you for reading. Love you for that!

Wish you a happy and safe week ahead. Keep slaying!
