Have you ever been forgotten? Or let’s say abandoned. One thing I have learnt in this world, is that most times people go below our expectations. They end up hurting us, then only return pretending that nothing indeed happened. What if we revenge and do what these people said and make the same Mistake?. But there is a fact that we can’t get rid of them, our sobbing heart suck our joy, and great moments in life, and at the end we are left with loneliness as an option.
While in the dark, we practice all we are going to say to those people, but when we face them we forget all we practiced while they sweet mouth us and we are presented brainsick. They robbed them of their happiness, my happiness and our happiness.
I indeed feel as sad as them.
How long do we have to wait for the monster in us to speak up?
How long do we have to look at faces before we speak up?
How long do we have to make conclusions to say what we feel?
How long do I have to deny The Me in Me?
Now I end up writing this and you end up reading this, how long do we have to wait.
Maybe, just maybe if you and I say something, things will be on the right track.
I seat here, with the echoing words “How long”, just “HOW LONG”!!!

    Yes HOW LONG …. Disappointment is all I see… Its not all about people going below our expectations, its about we expecting too much from them.. HOW LONG. How long do we wait for the monster in us to come out, HOW LONG. How long do we sit there and pretend everything is okay when its not. HOW LONG. How long do we wait for the solutions of our problems, when we ought to go out there and fight it. HOW LONG. How long do I have to put up the real me so others can see the me they want. HOW LONG. Now she inspired me to write, How long do we keep on writing then acting. How long do people keep on reading these and not putting an end to it all.. HOW LONG… Thanks Derazy.
