and just because you know you must, and just because you want to, out of the deepest corner, from the bottom, does not mean you have, and just because you’re trying, putting in effort, does not mean you’re putting in enough, and just because you’re still holding on doesn’t mean you’re not fallen, and just because you’re optimistic doesn’t mean it’s right and just because you’re alive doesn’t mean you’re living.
in continuation, you’re exhausted but you haven’t done anything, and you’re not ambitious but have achieved, you’ve finished, but haven’t completed, you’ve cried, but haven’t regretted, you’ve regretted, but haven’t improved.
and you’ve lost, but haven’t tried to win, you’ve criticized but haven’t listened.
you know, yet, you overlook.
