its just that
surviving
isn’t the same as living

and saying thank you
isn’t the same as having gratitude

its just that
loving someone
doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in love

and at times
changing the world
doesn’t necessarily mean you’re saving the world

it’s just that
not knowing, what’s happening around you
doesn’t necessarily mean
you’re living under a rock

and being married
doesn’t necessarily mean
that you’re settled

its just that
we got to try
to not be disillusioned
by these so called
‘grown-up’ perspectives

its just that
we got to try
to not let faith
be based
solely on comfort
and excuses

it’s just that
we got to try
to not let that magic
within us
die

its just that
we got to try
to live our life
and not just
survive

  1. You had me at β€œchanging the world
    doesn’t necessarily mean you’re saving the world”. Wow. That line just made me question a lot of things. Wow.

  2. Wow Lishaka, beautiful you tried to convey through it.😁😁
    Here’s some mine addition
    It’s just that we are living
    But actually we are dying in every passed second, every minute, in fact every moment..
