Isn't it funny, how
the seconds you wish would quickly pass
turn out to be the memories
that instead of fading will forever last?
Do you laugh as loudly as I do,
when people manage to tear you down,
just when you thought you'd found confidence,
they steal and crush your crown?
Do you find it hard to stop smiling
when you look at the state of the world?
Does it still feel like the sun will shine
after every filthy secret is unfurled?
During times like these,
what is it that you do?
Please share your knowledge with me,
because I have no clue.
