I Didn'T Say It Was Easy - Poem by erica johnson

I didn't say
It was easy
Trying to live without him
It was hard
But you're lucky
It didn't get harder

I didn't say
It was easy
Trying to be someone else
But you're lucky
Someone didn't beat you up
For being fake

I didn't say
It was easy
Trying to reach the high point
Sometimes you have
To start from
The back door
To reach the front
