This is one of many poems I have written. It says everything I was feeling at the current time I was going through as I had to pretend like everything was okay when my world was falling to pieces.

An ending that is equivalent to a beginning,

That’s all this is,

Continuous and ineffective, yet repetitive,

Change is just a comfortable reassurance of hope which truly does not exist,

It’s a reminder to breath even though every exhale is taken too soon to inhale, 

That’s all this is,

An illusion of protection, hiding everything in the distance with a layer of fog,

It’s an ineffective warning that comes before the pessimistic results of optimism, 

That’s all this is,

A definition of stability at its finest,

It’s a predetermined path that has been smoothed in preparation for a million steps that will head in the wrong direction,

That’s all this is.
