It was bad today.

It was the kind of bad that makes it hard

To put one foot in front of the other,

To smile at people I love,

To be around happiness.


It was bad today,

And I didn’t ask anyone for help.

I didn’t reach out because

You said you didn’t want to,

And you said that I was weak,

And you said that people like me

Didn’t have a place in this world.


It was bad today,

So I tried to do everything right.

I smiled,

I put myself in crowds of people,

I laughed.


It was bad today,

And I was alone.

  1. We all have those moments where we have bad days and would feel or be forced to keep this act of being alright even though in reality things aren’t we all have a place in this world it’s just a hard way to find it and there’s nothing wrong with talking to a person you feel comfortable with at all.


  2. A very emotional post, being a loner I could truly resonate to the feelings & emotions that you projected through your skillful usage of words. Based on my personal experience though don’t get bogged down if other belittle you, for everyone is flawless in their own unique way! Thanks for sharing such a lovely post. According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them 🙂
