MIRROR (A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ADEDOYIN AND OMOLARA

Why

Who

How

When

Where

Questions I ask on a regular basis

I’m tired of trying to prove anything 

I’m sick of hearing the truth

I don’t want to deal with the pain

But no amount of suppression takes it away


Why are you the way that you are

Who has the fault here

How did you not notice you were this flawed

When did you become like this

Where do you think you can get by being this way


Just shut up already

Anger doesn’t solve anything 

I can’t help it

Well try

I’m trying, I’m trying, I’ve been trying and I’m still trying but here I am

Doesn’t take a day to get there

I know, doesn’t make it any easier

Never said it would be easy

So chill, don’t pressure me, what about my little progress 

Little, long way to go 


You’ll have slip ups

I’ll be here to beat you up 

Just accept it and move 

There’s not much else you can do

But don’t give in 

Or you’ll bear the loss

You have the rest of your life ahead


And if I die tomorrow 

Then you tried, it’s not in vain

I want to sleep 

Goodnight 

Don’t disturb me in my dreams
