I stand up straight and brace myself for the next day.

Cause no matter what the date, people never seem to change.

Lock up my heart and keep a smile on my face.

Relationships fall apart and friends never stay.

Ill shy away from the past and keep a tight grip on the present.

I look carefully at the future in contrast.

Scars from many memories are hidden in my armor.

Lifes mysteries are so overrated.

All I can trust is my mind, cause my heart gave up long ago.

Im lost forever in a tight bind, a bind of a fear of loss, but I never let it slip.

No emotions shall cross.

In the end, I will win.

Because as a wise man once said,

Only fools rush in.
