I Know Nothing Else - Poem by Estefano Molina

She was tired of it
Living like this
And so was I
But I've always lived like this
Or grew used to it maybe
There was nothing safer
But I finally heard it
From her mouth
To my ears
She made it loud and clear
and she was right
I let it sink in

I know no other way
It is the only way to cope
With the failures of my own expectations
Where is the future I was promised?
Where is the happiness that never came?
I'm still waiting
At least for an answer
Because I've grown content with this
The misery and despair
The nostalgia of every night
The troubles of yesterday
Follow me until tomorrow
And I bathe in this self-pity
And it is disgusting
The filth
And when she left
The filth stayed
The misery and anguish
It remained
It's been here longer than her
Living in me all these years
And there is nothing safer
