Sadness is a part of me

A part of me.jpg

Sometimes I will sit and wonder–

Will I ever truly be happy?

Like a number branded on bare skin,

a scar’s refusal to heal,

a memory cemented in one’s mind

whether it be of anguish or euphoria.

This sadness has become

a part of me.

— An anonymous escape from life
