THE MAYBE SERIES

THE MAYBE SERIES

I.

Maybe you were created

So melancholy would be defined

Maybe happiness wasn’t meant

To roll by you and is just a

Fleeting concept, the elusive butterfly that

Never wants to be caught

 

II.

Maybe you’re happier

Seemingly because you’ve learned to tear

off the ruse that you’ve been wearing, only

to find that you’ve grown so accustomed to it that

without it you feel exposed, vulnerable, naked

 

III.

 

Maybe your fears are your biggest motivators

Your anxiety is your amphetamine

Your depression your Adderall

Your mood swings your LSD

Pumping you with endless creativity and unmatched

Persistence.

 

IV.

 

Maybe you should stop

Making your brain run

Too much and save the mind machine

For the actual act of writing.

Imagine how much you could’ve accomplished

If you started typing

And stopped whining
