I forget

Mechanized not only the pace but myself along the way
But I forget…

A new day, new deadlines come my way
I rush with my head filled with due tasks for today
Like a robot, I ensure I stay above or at least average
Laying down the parameters, a rat in a race
I twist and turn, with pretend smile on my face
But I forget…
Fear of missing out kicks in
I take part in things I would never fit in
Camouflaging, learning the trends
These new stories and traditions
I’m working to be a part, a side character in between
But I forget…
Even to relax, I choose the trendy crafts
What was my own, got adjusted to set paths
Fitting a set structure even for unique tasks
Day in day out, apply same methods on different asks
Mechanized not only the pace but myself along the way
But I forget…
I forget why I came here
I forget what made me choose
I forget what mattered to me
I forget what makes me blue
I forget that I am unique
And that it isn’t a race, even though it seems


I forget … that I am more than a suit…

    1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by 😊
      I’m happy you too found it relatable. I know how easy it is for us to forget these things in our busy day to day routines.

      And thanks for following the blog! Hope to read more of your thoughts

      1. Thank you! This is actually something I’ve been looking at in therapy and currently on the fence about what to do / what’s actually doable. This reminded me I shouldn’t opt for “same old” because I’m scared or it’s easier.

      2. I’m truly touched to hear that my words helped in someway. It is so hard to find what is actually doable even though there are a lot of suggestions out there. Finding the one that works for us takes time and patience. “Same old” is visible and catchy in so many ways but isn’t always the best option for us.

        Thank you for writing back ❀️
