You know what's easier?

Monday, October 04, 2021



It’s easier to hope to have someone else’s life
Than to actually try your best with the one you already have.
It easier
To see others try their best and cheer them on.
To see them move forward, fail, and learn.
To witness how they succeed and evolve some more.
It easier to just watch
And to keep watching.
After all, it's scary to stop and then wake up 
To your own uneventful life story.
You see their wonders compared to your pitifulness
Then you get frustrated and desperate.
You think, "I can never..."
When you haven't even tried anything yet.
It’s easier to hope to have someone else’s life
Than to actually try your best with the one you already have.
But even if your life magically swapped life with theirs
You still have to put in the work.
Otherwise, you'll just end up with the same fate
All over again.
Until you find another life to admire
And hope was yours instead.
Dreaming, hoping, wishing
Everything seems easier
Except doing.
