Hit the Right Note and Sing Along

Poem

Simran Kankas
Mar 21, 2020 · 2 min read

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you strong
I have been listening to the same old song
I know I need to create a new playlist
I don’t know how to pick up the right one
When everything seems so wrong

I feel like I am inside a big bubble
Watching everyone but no one can see me
I put myself in here
Now I feel this is not where I belong
I don’t know how to pick up the right one
When everything seems so wrong

I want to burst this bubble of low self-esteem
I want to go outside and live my dream
Is something wrong with me
Why can’t I play along
I don’t know how to pick up the right one
When everything seems so wrong

It is all full of negative air
Does not matter who did it
It has gotten into my head
And it has been so long
I don’t know how to pick up the right one
When everything seems so wrong

All keys are in place
The song has been written
I know it is me, who is not ready
To hit the right note and sing along
I don’t know how to pick up the right one
When everything seems so wrong
