There's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait."

I cry

The tears trickle down my cheek.

The worries of my past and future,

All wound up.

Expelled into a single tear.

 

Why do I cry?

The waves of happiness

Inside of me

Have ceased.

 

The world is full of pain.

My beating heart gets

But no recognition.

The labors and toils of life,

That I sacrifice,

Are not enough

“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Sarah,
Names Alaster/TheRareBreed, Nice to meet you. This poem truly makes me feel for the idea behind it. But i want to note, after all my time of writing (since i was like 10- I'm 17) Ive learned that true happiness... it comes from this art. Write in your way, find the writers seed. Continue to inspire those around you.
