The way we see the world always changes

What if this is the way you see the world?

.

I never believed in depression

Never believed it to be true

I always believed you make your own happiness

You make your own luck

.

But what if the world turned on you

What if your world starts to crumble?

Piece by piece

Slowly but surely, you see it falling apart

.

You start to see the world in a different way

.

Your wrists are now canvases to be painted upon

The pills are just a mask so people can see you smile

Your fingers aching from a perfected knot in a beautiful noose

The poison devouring everything that’s left inside your body

.

What if this is the way you see the world now?
