Maybe Tomorrow #poetry

I am not the same girl you knew.

I am not shy and sad.

I am not one who smiles



I am someone completely new.

I am angry and hurt.

I pretend happiness



I cry at nothing

and everything.

I yearn for ease

and happiness.


I don’t get

what i want.

But that’s okay.

I get

what i need.


So maybe tomorrow…

i’ll be who you knew.

Maybe i’ll smile

and truly be happy

.   effortlessly

.        steadily

.             free.
