A distant ringing as he cries himself to sleep again. The alarm to get up in the morning Another wasted night. He drags his lifeless body out of bed. He looks at the clock. 5 minutes till he must leave. Dresses in the first thing he finds and walks up the stairs. Headphones already in so he can block out everything. The people around him look at him with a look of pity. Their words say nothing of it but their eyes are loud. They speak words of failure and missed opportunity. When he was young, he had so much potential. Had so many dreams of the things he could do as an adult. Like college would be a dream and the best thing in the world. The idea that he could do anything. That childlike wonder was shattered and destroyed, leaving behind a shell of optimism and regret. But the show must go on, so he keeps moving.

When he finally gets to class its time. That little ray of optimism he used to be comes out and shines around those around him. Oddly enough he’s become a ray of sunshine for the people around him. The act he puts on is ideal for those around him. So, who is he to take it away from them. The camera flash is enough to blind him. Even if its for a moment he forgets what it is that haunts his nights. The feelings that break him down become nonexistent when he out In public. When the world is watching he becomes the thing he pretends to be. a happy go lucky man who has not a care in the world. and for those few moments he is.
