Isn't it funny
how one mistake
can change your
entire life completely?
Or how one apology
is never enough?
Or how it takes
a lifetime just to
make up for something

Isn't it funny
how feelings are
never returned fairly?
Or how you use
all your energy to
make yourself seen

Or how love is
nothing but a bitter joke?
Isn't it funny
how happiness is
never really real?
Or how depression
is a constant companion?
Or how pain
is just a trick of the mind?
Isn't it funny
how things turned out?
