Sometimes we confuse a sad moment with a sad life. This poem/example is just a reminder that you can get through anything.
“Why am I so unhappy?” I think to myself as I cry silently
Tears pouring out of my eyes ,staining my pillow with a pool of tears
As I sit up from my bed and look in the mirror, a small part of me realizes I’m not unhappy, I am unhappy with this situation.
I have realized in those small moments when I feel the most vulnerable, the most insecure
That my achievements are far vaster than my failures
That a sad moment does not mean a sad life
Sad moments take up a lot of people’s lives, like a black cloud huddling over a person for a time period where they confuse this one moment with the rest of their life.
No, my friends we are not unhappy people
We are just experiencing unhappy moments
That this moment, this time of unhappiness is just temporary
That eventually things will go back to normal
You will feel yourself once again
You will soon be on a roller coaster that will only go up
You will not be upset any longer I promise you.
Things will get better but only with time, energy, and positive people in your life that matter to you.
For my friends that are struggling now, that maybe struggle everyday
I am here for you
I am sorry that temporary unhappiness to you is a reality everyday
That you feel like it is impossible to be happy
I am here to tell you that even if you think you can’t, you can
I am here for you if you ever need me, just let me know
