I did everything I was asked to do.
I went to school. Never missed a day.
I got a degree. Barely passed.
I did job hunting. Didn’t get a job.
I did everything I was asked to do up until now.
I was asked to live. I never got a say in it.
So I did. I did live. I did try to.
And now I’d like to take that back.
And every day I think about it. I see it everywhere around me.
How high is the fall from that bridge? How long till a rope breaks your neck? How deep is the water below?
And nobody will never know.
And I’ll probably live until I can’t do it anymore.
Because I was asked to live when there was another option already there.
