Life seems nice, and so does snow, when seeing it shine against the glistening beams.
Then you walk outside, and the cold breeze reminds you how painful beauty can be.
But as you walk and walk and walk, you gain back feeling in your feet,
You realize that the chill you outrightly felt freed you from the long-lasting suffering of heat.
And as you continue to stroll you look to see everyone is laughing and speaking as one,
Tears fill your eyes as you keep your head down, listening to the others have fun.
That’s when the serenity leaves and you understand the feeling of lonely, rather than alone.
But when eyes meet you are set free, and everything from heat to cold from time to forever, all things turn to stone.
It’s nice to know there’s another soul who is as lost and frightened as you,
Because then you feel like you can rule the world, while just walking down the street as two.
No ruler rules forever, and that does not stop with you, because reality always sneaks up leaving you stuck and confused.
You can’t explain this feeling, something between apprehension and mania, so you drift to sleep because that’s all you know to do.
Waking up you feel nothing but lost, although reassurance overflows you,
As you smooth the wrinkles on your bed, and let the warm water rinse the suds from your hair, you feel that long lost sense of peace.
Because what can you control other than your actions, that will lead you through times of disbelief.
To choose to look up, or to see the beauty in pain, when in the moment is quite the feat.
But to glance back, into your past, you almost feel like a cheat,
Because how could it be so easy to find relief when choosing the hard thing.
