StrainMature

I can’t remember the last time
I was so resigned and accepting
of why everything has to fuck up
even when I wish it wouldn’t

I tried being more open to the world
but I let in more than I could handle
Now I’m happier pushing it all away
it eases the strain of losing all I held close

I can’t remember the last time
I hit the bottle so damn hard
and I lashed out in anger
at the stranger I saw within myself

It’s never been so tough
just to face each and every day
Because so many have made sure
that I’ll face each day alone

The End
