Behind Empty Expressions

“We don’t believe what’s on T.V.

Because it’s what we want to see.”

I’m reminded that I’m not who I want to be, because trying to be perfect is a hopeless goal. 

And I’ll try but I just feel like I’m not making any progress as the stress and anxiety catch up to me.

“I look outside and see a whole world

Better off without me in it, trying to transform it.”

I wake up and want to stay in bed because I don’t want to face the inevitable disappointment from those who expect so much from me.

I’m stuck between what people need me to do, and what I want to do to feel happier, but my personal issues are always too small to take seriously yet too big to completely ignore. So they remain at the back of my mind until I cover them up with something else.
