It's Been A While - Oliver Lyngdoh
It's been a while,
Quite a while since I took up a book to read,
A pen to write,
A thought to muse on,
A muse to captivate me.
Its been quite a while...
But I guess that's what happens
When life throws you curve balls,
When all you do makes you tired,
Insecure and Anxious,
When it just feels not worth it- now more than ever.
Those demons you can't slay,
Those headaches that won't go away;
Lemons to make lemonade they say,
I guess you can't squeeze juice out of rotten fruit...
"Its been a while", you say,
"How have you been?"
Compelled by societal norms, I smile and say
"I've been swell"
When everything is not.
