That’s Just Life

a poem by Annika Basnet

It’s a rainy day, but the sky is still pretty
It’s so chilled, valuing the warmth that’s missing
Teared eyes and swollen lips
All hidden perfectly behind pretty smiles

Never knew what happy means
Until the pain plugged in
But after the dark night passed
The sunrise was just worth it

The tears dried
The smile too will hide
One fine day when looking back
We realized that’s just life
