Missing poster, what did you say?
Did you have a message for me?
Hey you, happy new year.
I hope this year brings you the joy you deserve.
I thought of you during the countdown.
I kissed the air. I hope it preserves
It gets better. I know it does.
You may not think so, but it does.
It gets better. I know it does,
Because I went through it too.
Kick me down. Leave me to dry. Make me bleed. Make me cry. Do what you want. Tell me I’m weak. But you won’t see the tears roll down my cheek.
There are these walls in my head. Have you seen them? They’re so big. So long. So wide. Impossible to scale. Even if you climbed up them, the barbed wire would have stopped you from going over. There is one simple message these walls are meant to send out: “KEEP OUT!” It’s almost funny, the more walls I build, the more people find a reason to try and climb over.
