Everything’s the same

Nothing ever varies,

My frustration has no name

It’s a sadness that I carry.

 

It’s already been too long

It’s already been too much,

Everything feels wrong

But how do I get rid of such?

 

What happened to the girl who thought she had it all?

Something needs to change, how do I break my fall?

I am bitter as I drown in my own seethe,

Sometimes it simply hurts to breathe.

 

Everyday’s the same and I loathe the same routine,

I feel joy or I feel pain and everything in between.

This life sometimes I cannot bear yet it doesn’t change,

The things I want to do and say are sadly out of my range.

 

‘I follow my heart’, is what I used to say,

A naïve girl who did afford living her way.

But today my priorities are another,

For I’m a wife and a young mother.

 

I don’t regret my choices or the things I’ve done,

It takes courage to do what I do for my young son.

But I desire more for I’m not meant to settle,

As I’ve said before, reality just meddles.

 

I am not conventional nor from the cookie cutter mold,

And writing of these things is frankly getting old.

I am tired of wishing for the things I want to be,

And replaying the scenarios in my head that I want to see.

 

Monotony—must be who I’m supposed to blame,

But it’s me and only me; my frustration’s name.
