Not To Impress You - Poem by J.B. Baronda
I failed to impress you and all the things I do is nothing,
Everything was planned out but yet failing.
I learned to be someone new,
Thought of so many things just to satisfy you.
You said that you don't need me.
But considering all my attempts, How can't you see?
The leaves of this tree is rapidly withering,
The compassion and care is no longer here within.
I used to love this place, where I thought I did belong.
All those memories we've shared for years makes me strong.
But yet, I'm crushed by my obsession to please you.
And I know that it will never come true.
The lies I used to enjoy them,
Their giving me the courage to believe again.
Seems like luck has left me,
I can no longer see any beauty.
I could feel all the depression,
I've lost most of my emotion.
Now I feel no pain nor pity,
I'll just live my life merrily.
I'll bid goodbye to the prism of misery,
These cursed chains of responsibility.
For I believe that there's a new tomorrow,
A new beginning where there is no regret and sorrow.
