I know today is the 22nd, but I wrote this yesterday.


I cry…

crying banshee

I cry because I’m alone

I cry because my life is stuck in a rut

and there’s no way to get out.


Choices is what made us.

“The good things that I want to do, I don’t do,

but the awful things that I don’t want to do, that I do.” *


I cry because I cannot go back

and I cannot move forward

because I keep looking back.


I cry because I don’t belong here

I cry because I have nothing,

no one to share it with.


I cry because time waits for no man.

I cry because I only know what I’ve lost,

when it’s truly gone.


I cry for the missed opportunities,

missed lessons.

I cry because of my stubbornness.


I cry because I can’t look myself in the mirror.

I cry because I can’t stop hurting myself.

I cry because I can’t tell anyone without

being labelled crazy.


I cry because I’m a beautiful mess.

I cry because no one will ever get to see that.


I cry because you laugh at me.

I cry because no one understands me.

I cry because I’m trying too hard to impress you.


I cry for the pain

and sweet bliss

of this world.


But most of all: I cry because

this is the only world I know.


*the quote is a rough translation from the Afrikaans Romans 8:19
