The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far from the Tree

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised

to discover your father is disgusting,

just like you.

After all, what they say is true:

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

He’s done horrible, unspeakable things

to an innocent young girl,

just like you.

He took something from her

that you took from me ‘

that wasn’t for either of you to take.

You are both crooked and disturbed.

You both deserve to rot in hell

for the crimes you’ve committed.

It makes me sick to my stomach

to remember and know the things you do

and think you can get away with.

This world is an awful place,

not just because of the lack of justice

but because it is populated with people like you.

Eventually

Everything that comes into your life

must eventually become absent.

No matter how much you try

to nurture and care for something,

it will eventually disappear.

You can try to prevent it,

but you will fail.

You can try to prolong it,

but you will hurt yourself more.

You can believe it’s not actually gone,

but you will just be in denial.

Everything faces the cruel hands of time.

Everything has an expiration date

Everyone dies,

eventually.

Everything changes,

eventually.

Everything disintegrates to dust,

eventually.

Everything you at one point have,

something you take advantage of daily,

will someday walk out and be replaced with regret.

Everything good in life will fade away,

just like me.

 

Just Keep Swimming

They say to go with the flow

so I just keep swimming.

They say it’ll get better,

so I just keep swimming.

They say the best is yet to come

so I just keep swimming.

They say to stay positive

so I just keep swimming.

They say I’ll get everything I’ve ever wanted

so to just keep swimming,

but the truth is I am so tired.

I’m tired of swimming

and keeping my head afloat.

I’m tired after years swimming,

chasing something I can never have.

They ask what I’m going to do about it?

I don’t have an answer

or the guts to even try something new

so I just keep swimming.

Settling for Less

Dating anyone but you

would mean I’m settling.

How do I convince myself

that I’m actually worth less?

How do I tell myself

that I don’t deserve

everything I thought that I

could ever want in life?

How do I tell myself that

I can be happy with

someone who has less to offer?

How do I   live with myself?

How do I keep going

when I know what’s waiting

for me down the road

is just disappointment?

No one can ever compare.

You’re the gold medal.

Everyone else just feels like

a participation trophy.
