As I mosey on in life and pretend like I’ve got my act together, the same thoughts plague my mind. Where do I really fit in? What am I actually going to do with my life? And when I finally figure it all out, who will still be around when I do it? People keep popping into my life in just the blink of an eye. And when I finally think I can trust them completely, they are gone. Just like that *snap*.
I constantly question who will still be there for me in a couple of months. People come and go so quickly… It scares me that one day I’ll just blink and everyone will be gone. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before.
What if I’m only this stepping stone in people’s lives. They’ll move on from me to someone and something shiny and new.
I wish people would stop and actually look with their hearts rather than with their eyes. I may not look like much, but I’m more than some stepping stone in their lives. If only they could just see that…
"And scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
And don’t it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are
We grew up way too fast
And now there’s nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won’t tell no one your name”
