Self Control

Updated: Mar 4

Happiness doesn’t last long

Not when the person around you can’t stand it

For once I want to be around

I want to be look at and not looked for

But you can’t stand it

My happiness keeps you quiet

My joy makes you question

My presence makes you hateful

My smile makes you sarcastic and distant

I never understood why

For once I want to be around

I want to feel this

I want to be looked at and not looked for

But you make me want to run

My tears save my balled fist

Not tears of sadness or disappointment

Tears of self control and discipline

You talk and I control myself

I'm not ungrateful

I'm not disappointed

I'm just holding back

The picture I want to bring to life

Will make me a different person

Maybe it's not for me

Or maybe I don’t deserve it

But it was fun while it lasted
