Changes

Is Sadness really richer and more complex

Than Happiness, her sister? Does her

Kiss dazzle you for longer?

.

Friend,

I used to believe that so many things were right

Until the day I realized that I wasn’t the same person

Anymore

.

I stare at my former self and say

— There’s no beauty in suicide, unless

You’re sick, too…

And all the inexistent gods know how ill and sick

I’ve been. I’ve been sick for a long, long time

.

My hands are full of wishes and dreams, but I’ve

Gave up on most of them.

Still, my hands remain warm and ready to

Hold yours if you need me

.

Time is the most beautiful god

.

    1. Thank you so much. I wrote this poem when I was thinking about life and my own current ideals. The last line is based on the band Legião Urbana (I tagged them) — their lyrics were very inspiring (:
