This is a very honest and personal poem I wrote just out of the blue. As I was near the end of writing it, I liked it so much that I wanted it to be my very first blog post. To those who are here, taking the time to read this, thank you so much. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment!
“Keep Your Head Up”
Sometimes I find myself wondering why I am here,
On this Earth.
At a standstill, just wishing for things to be better,
While also realizing, it could always be much worse.
Days I want to and do walk around unhappy,
With everyone and everything in my path.
As if it is the most ideal solution I can grasp;
Temporarily blinded of reasons why I should feel lucky.
I attempt to mold my soul,
To be empty, like a desert.
Dark, like a deep hole.
Acting as if I’m too invincible to feel hurt.
But I am a human being,
Who, in reality, has a very soft heart;
That at times can do a little too much caring.
No matter how hard I try, it refuses to stop.
God has His own plans for everyone,
Things happen when they do for a reason.
When life starts getting heavy and tough,
I just gotta tell myself, “Keep your head up.”
