Hope

This is how you should react the next time you think your life is over with just a few words, with just a phone call, with a rude gesture or with a fake person who appears every now and then under disguise of an innocent boy. There is still hope, still time to prove yourself.

Her eyes fill with tears as she stares at the mirror,
All these years she had been thinking herself  clever.
The first tear from her eyes hits the floor
And right then she realsies that there’s so much more.

She could still make those strangers smile,
For him, she could still walk a mile,
She could still dance like an insane person,
She could still laugh out loud with no apparent reason.

What if she hadn’t known about it at all?
What if she had never received that phone call?
Well it’s time to close her eyes and remove that string of thought,
It’s time to start thinking back about all the battles she fought.

She could still pretend as if  nothing happened,
She could still laugh about how things slackened,
She could still paint with her little sister,
Still play with her friend’s brother.

She looks back at the mirror…
This time she looks even more clever.
Behind all that there’s still hope,
Still time to pretend like there was nothing else to know.
