I Took My Time

I walked the same road that others took

They were all moving too fast

I picked up my pace and I stumbled

No one helped or extended a hand

I was low

And so I decided

To take my own step

My own pace

My own time

Hang Man

Outside he appeared to be jolly

Inside he was feeling hollow, empty

He could feel something creeping in his mind

It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind

He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it

But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it

Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see

It took over him so his life he took a finality

He bowed his head and there himself he hanged

The darkness he could no longer withstand

Easier

Is it easier to hurt than to love?

Easier to promise the stars above

Than to just be kind to the needy.
Is it easier to walk away than to stay?

Easier to promise a better day

Than make one for someone.
Sometimes it’s easier to lose hope than be hopeful

Because the people now have made me doubtful 

And that’s a sad thing, I reckon.

I’m Taking It Easy

It’s a facade,
A defense mechanism,
It’s how I am when I get broken

It’s not to be pretentious
It’s more to stop the heartache
I don’t want to get into the whirlwind of hurt
I’ll let it slide

I get to choose, you see
I choose to smile and be happy
I may appear insensitive because of this
But if I let the pain win,
I’ll die for sure
Hence, I am taking it easy on myself
