Looking For Light

September 6, 2014

It’s okay not to be okay,
Or so they say.
But who are they, and why aren’t they here?
Why do they say that?
Do they know, do they think and feel?
Why is it okay?
It doesn’t feel okay,
It never does.
How could it?
People are so different from one another,
So is it really safe to assume,
That one person can experience a moment,
Like any other individual person?
I don’t think it works that way.
It never seems to.
It’s so hard to know yourself,
But when you try to know someone else?
It’s a battle, it’s a struggle, it’s a war at times.
But if the other people are important to your life,
Chances are it will all work itself out.
Stay cool, go with the flow, be yourself.
The only way another can truly know you,
Is if you are you all the time, not just sometimes.
Don’t pretend in order to impress,
Don’t hold it inside.
You have something to say?
Try your damnedest to say it.
Communication is important in all things.
Life, love, happiness, heartbreak, loneliness.
Everything is key, everything is essential.
This is life,
And nobody said it would be a fucking walk in the park,
Although that does sound kind of nice right now.
Just talk it out, write it down, live it to your very fiber.
Don’t forget to remember that the world is bigger than you,
Even though it may not seem so at times,
So harsh, so unforgiving.
Look for light,
And once you find it…
