The moon didn't make an appearance today, the stars don't seem happy either, that's why they ain't shining like usual....
And amma choose my smile tommorow . Just my smile. Just my smile, genuine smile. Just my smile.
I'll sit down by the shade,by the fence, read a story book .
after am done, I'll listen to the music that sets me on fire while I draw at the sky..
Amma choose myself for a start tommorow.
Go out for ice cream maybe, and take my bike with me to the riverside.
I won't be crying like I normally, I'll tell you about the stories have been reading.. And maybe even read the backside of the next book I'll be reading.
Then I'll take my bike to the cafe for some caffeine before the headaches begin.
Amma choose peace, and see how normal, normal feels like.
I'll still feed the birds, that's the only time I look forward to everyday. Have named them and they really chirp when am late..
Amma choose me, not to hurt anybody, but because it feels like something I should have done ages ago.
Amma choose me
Even after the moon and the sun are done hugging...
