It’s been a while since those gloomy days. It’s been a while since the last time I wanted to be off of this world. It’s been a while I know baby, but I hope you don’t find yourself crying to sleep again years from now. When you’re exhausted from work, and your whole body aching, and the only thing greeting you is the dimmed light and a dull house you call home. I hope you don’t look for the answer of your worth anymore years from now. When a client just declines your presentation that day, and your boss demands some paperworks done by the afternoon, and your colleagues talk about how messy your work is. I hope you don’t.
I hope you don’t just drink your sadness away when things seem to go wrong cause I know exactly how it’ll turn out for you. You will call that boy from college by the fifth glass and tell him how fucked up you are, how messed up everything is without him around. Even years after your graduation. You will cry on the phone by the sixth glass and you will hear him soothes you down knowing that that’s the only thing you needed to hear after a long day. Validation. And maybe, after an hour or two, you will mistaken his kindness for something else.
But honey, don’t.
I hope you don’t mistaken his kindness for something else. I hope you don’t tell him things you’ll regret the morning after. I hope you don’t look at yourself disgusted for what you did. Cause honey, I think that’s a wonderful thing that you do each time. You wake up each morning, you spend your days trying to stay afloat, and you stay afloat. Right? You do everything everyday that you cry almost giving up each time, but you don’t. You never do. Don’t you find yourself so wonderful for not giving up? Cause I personally do.
I remember the other day I was with friends I haven’t seen for a while. We’ve had some good talks, with some good bottles along the way. I remember all was good. I remember the old days, when things weren’t as complicated as it is then. When the only thing making you anxious was the school national exam and nothing else. When friends were those you see five days a week, twelve hours a day. When all was good and all was fine. When all was good and nothing mattered while you still had them sticking with you through the day.
It was good. It really was until that point I questioned my own self one thing; where did it all go?
I think growing up is weird. One time you thought you had it all, like the world is only the matter of you turning the back of your hand. But then one other time, you missed one millisecond of it, right when you blink your eyes, and it’s all gone. Like, all those things that you thought matter the most to you, they’re gone. Friends leave. Achievements get forgotten. Long road ahead, no maps. And turns out, you never really knew where you stand since day one. Things leave and you’re left alone clueless with how you’re supposed to do after that happened.
