The Art of Life

Settling

Settling…

Is agreeing,

Without really believing.

Settling…

Is appearing happy,

While dying on the inside,

With feelings,

Alive,

Being buried.

Settling…

Is muting a beautiful voice,

That yearns to speak out,

Be free,

Love.

Settling…

Is staying,

When the heart wants

Only to not feel so empty,

Cold,

Useless…

Alone.

Settling…

Is feeling alone,

Surrounded in a sea of grey,

Bustling with people,

Activity,

Life,

With no one to understand.

Settling…

Is turning around,

Ignoring all of the little problems,

And pretending.

Because everything

Is

Not

Okay.

Settling…

Is being tired.

Not physically,

But mentally.

Mentally.

Drained.

Settling…

Is never being feeling,

Truly good enough.

But maybe just a little love,

True love,

Can change

Even the weakest of souls.

Now, I will admit, I am most definitely not a poet. Also, like everything I tend to end up writing, it definitely sounded better in my head. However, I hope a few might be able to relate a little.

Special thanks to Justin. The will it took me to help make you realize to never settle for someone who does not deserve any of your love… is the same will that helped me overcome all of my “settling”… for all the wrong people and all the wrong things. I may never have said it very often, but thank you.
