Flip the Coin

I’ll always mind the beauty and inspiration life has to offer

but the truth is

I no longer care about anything

I know I said

I love you

I just needed to say that

Because I met and have known many hardships in life

Truth is it still has a big impact on me

It’s what led me to feel this way

My struggle has hit me hard

I am less than others

No one can tell me

that life is beautiful

that I am well intentioned;

I’ve been shown my mistakes in the mirror, and still know the truth—

"I am a failure," I’d say

You see,

I can’t fight myself

I know better

I fought myself before and found that there is no winning in that


Read from the bottom up; flip the coin and smile
