Loss of My Faith
They say, you become older,
You become wiser.
And the younger you are,
The more vulnerable and naïve you are.
Well, I don’t believe in such anymore,
I thought when you found someone special, and real,
That you didn’t need to know everything.
You just needed your love to survive through the thick and then,
The happy and the bad.
And why shouldn’t that be enough?
But when that person leaves you,
Breaking your heart,
And leaving you faceless, nameless—
You don’t know who you even are,
I’m sure that you gain wisdom then.
You learn that you can’t trust people, no matter what they say,
And you should only stick with yourself.
You should never let yourself fall into the trap of “love”,
Or that no one even believes in sticking by your side,
No matter what.
But, instead of keeping that wisdom,
You go and become stupid.
You still yearn for that person, and even though you know you shouldn’t,
You go back to them and give up your will to live.
This time, you have no dreams or hopes,
Because they were shattered into nothing.
You’re nothing, you hold nothing,
You will never be nothing.
It is then, that your loss of faith in that one person,
Who you counted on,
Has taken place.
They’ve changed— left you behind.
But it doesn’t matter anymore now, does it?
After all, you don’t believe in love anymore.
Because, you’ve lost your faith in it all.
