A Year Goes By

Fri, 11/11/2016 - 21:41 -- tsalat

A year goes by

Overwhelming emotions that feel as if the world is exploding

As the year goes by,

I don’t notice myself slowly changing


A year of love

It’s hard when you fall in love

It’s even worse when it’s one of your best friends


A year of friends

Sometimes I feel as if I am the only one putting the effort in

I make new friends and I push some away

I rid myself of a toxic friendship and let myself be free


A year of pain

Unrequited love is the most painful experience

It’s as if everything is slipping out of my grasp and held just out of reach


A year of happiness

I go to work and forget about school and the fake friends that come with it

I spend my nights laughing with the most honest people I know

The only time of day when I am not holding myself back


A year of stupidity

Some people just don’t understand what I’m trying to say

I learn from my mistakes and won’t let people take me for granted


A year of confusion

When will I ever know who I really am?

And will I ever be able to tell anyone?

I think it’s time to let myself be free
