Some days waking up is hard
When my dreams are more than I wake up to be
Some days showering is hard
When I know all my thoughts will finally catch up to me
Some days eating is hard
When I can’t make a decision on what to even have
Some days drinking is hard
When all I want is something to drown my anxiety
Some days walking is hard
When all I want to do is run
Some days talking is hard
When I want to scream away the voices convincing me I can be more
Some days breathing is hard
When I am not even sure I should still be here
Some days loving is hard
When all I want is for you to hate me
Some days sleeping is hard
When I dream that you leave
Because sometimes I can’t even fathom performing basic human functions
Some days I need you to love me
When I can’t even remember how to feel
Because some days
It is just too hard to be.
