Biggest Lie

 

They caused so much pain,

That can’t be explained.

Just stay in your lane,

No point to complain.

I will never be heard,

I will never be yearned.

I lie awake at night,

Asking if I should fight.

Or just deal with it.

 

Live with it,

Internalize it,

Others have it worse,

This is not a curse,

Just hide,

Make up a lie,

I just want to die—

 

Wait—

 

Sorry, slip of the tongue,

Rewind, that was wrong.

Meant to say: I’m fine.

I’m fine, I’m fine;

I swear to the heavens,

 

I am fine.
