I didn't ask for sunny days
or bright and happy smiles.
I don't like your purposely rhyming poems
random rhyming is more my style.
I didn't want the happy memories
they make the bad seem much worse.
I didn't want your distant smile
like a ghost of how you were.
I didn't want and didn't like
a lot of things you know.
But they're here
and that's the way it is.
Trying to force them away
won't make them go any faster.
So for now there's one thing to do
and I'll do it since I must.
Accept the fact that they happened
and embrace their part in what I've come to be.
