The Plan – A Poem

Sick of feeling this self-pity
need to get back to being
the person people prefer to see
change the subject
tell them I’m fine
get them to talk about their problems
instead of mine
become the burdened
rather than the burden
be a listener
keep the hurt in
build back the wall
disguise it with a smile
fool them all
at least for a while
hold back ’til tomorrow
it will be better by then
it worked before
it will work again
