Most days life just passes by in a rush.
Things are so uninteresting and monotonous
that you don’t even remember them happening.
But eventually there always comes a bump in the road
that jars you out of your reverie
and forces you to take action;
and the very thought of it is frightening.
I fear that said time is coming for me soon,
and everything inside me just screams
for me to run far away from here,
so I don’t have to do something
that I don’t feel ready for in the slightest.
But then again,
are any of us ever truly ready
for the events that unfold?
We try our hardest to prepare but
life always tends to spice things up,
and pushes us towards situations that force us to fight;
and to survive.
So life, if you’re listening right now,
throw everything my way all at once
and get it over with please
so that I can go home after fighting the battle,
brew a cathartic cup of tea,
and recharge until the next calamity strikes.
