Who I really am.

by Evi   Feb 7, 2018


I despise meeting new people.
Because that way I discover more about myself.
And it reminds me.
Of what I really am.

I loathe it because it reminds me of
"Me".

I'm a mouldy fruit.
Slowly rotting more and more.

Nobody likes a fruit which is spoiling.
But nobody will know,
If I keep the mould inside.

Crying makes me feel better.
But... It's crying.
If I keep it up,
The mould will come outside.

And they will notice.

And then I thought:
"Why do I exist?
Have I ever done anything
Which makes me worth existing?

I disappoint everyone"

And it's true.
I really disappoint everyone.

But the thing is,
Crying will get me nowhere.
Besides just causing me trouble.

So
Should I let the mould consume me?
Should I listen to them?

Should I
?

    Crying will indeed get you nowhere, but accepting the situation doesn't either. You've been running away from your demons long enough. Face them. Fight them. Beat them.

    Evi, whatever anyone says, you never disappoint anyone. You're a wonderful human being, that I am proud to call my friend.
