bellow rock bottom

below rock bottom

 

tell me

 

how did it feel when they saw you at your worst

 

the moment when everything fell apart

right in front of you

 

there were bruises

most you couldn’t see

 

you got quiet

(which tells you something

because on most days you just couldn’t shut up)

 

dreams became a blessing

because you woke up to nightmares

 

and for the first time in your life

you were afraid

 

truly

 

not that you never felt it before

you just never thought it would get any worse

 

until it did

 

you learned that life works like that sometimes

 

it loves to disappoint

especially when your expectations are in all the wrong places

 

perfection

is only a concept in this world when we expect from others

but especially from ourselves

 

until one day

you learned you were doing it all wrong

in every which way possible

with every possible scenario you came up with

(hypothetical or otherwise)

you learned that you were wrong

 

it was a tough pill to swallow

but you changed yourself

 

because you knew that with every failure

there was success

 

with every failure

there was another opportunity

 

and life still loved to disappoint

but you weren’t bothered as much

 

because you were finally doing things right for once
