You’re in your room again, exhausted
from yesterday’s duties and responsibilities but
something is off.
The walls feel like they are closing,
stuck in time but the walls don’t want
to move forward— sometimes they
prefer the time when things weren’t chaotic.
Afternoon’s window view was standing
still to enjoy the world’s wonders I think about
often and sometimes, does the world want to hold
on to these wonders—
You are envious of the tranquil feelings
of others because they seem confident
in what they want to do in the near
future—you are three steps trailing behind.
But not all was so bad, your room became
the safe haven from all the annoyance of time,
moving fast and wanting to stay in last year
forever because it seems last year was the last
time that the world was moving
towards your happiness.
