The Only One

I don’t care if it hurts, I want to have control, I want a perfect body, I want a perfect soul.
Radiohead, Creep

We all have a day we wish we could undo
And one we could redo.

We all want to be somebody
We just don’t know who.

Am I the only one who feels alone
In a land of hundreds?
Thousands?
Millions?

Am I the only one who feels like a failure
When all I do is win?
(If you tell me you did not just sing DJ Khaled’s song All I Do Is Win you sit on a throne of lies and smashed lollipops)

Am I the only one who feels so cold
In a city of fire?

Am I the only one?

I hope so.

I hope no on else feels as alone,
As disappointing,
As cold
As I.

And that’s the sad truth
Everybody does,
No matter who
Or what
You are.

And I’m not going to say
It will get better
Because sometimes
Life gets you down.
And that’s okay
Without sadness,
There could be no happiness.

Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
