I’m taking this time to think.
You disappeared within a blink.
It wasn’t that I wasn’t happy with the life I live.
It was mostly just repetitive routine.
And you came along once again,
again giving me the push to go see this and that.
Experiencing life outside of my own room.
Life like this is worth living,
as long as you have friends.
It’s when I’m alone,
these dark emotions become known.
And I know I shouldn’t rely on anyone,
but myself to have a meaningful life.
Because every life is valuable.
