Stares don’t ignite
anxious flames alight
foul tempers run amuck
but in carefully placed glances are stuck
because I’m not who I was

so kiss that bottle
and let the lies swirl down your throat
because they choke at my indignation
in the rear view goes their exclamation
I feel free from the weight
and they can never hold me down
because while I feel alone
my friends aren’t far now

That’s not going to make a difference in the world. That’s not going to make a difference in my life. And it’s certainly not going to make me stronger.
“Don’t wish things were easier. Wish you were better.”
That’s my mantra, these days.
Complaining solves nothing. Absolutely nothing. It might make me feel a little…
