to a friend,
are you okay?
i thought i’d check in
lately you don’t seem like yourself
the spark in your eyes that used to set ablaze the sky seems to have dimmed
you’re making a lot of mistakes and you’re not improving on them like you used to
you don’t even make polite conversation anymore
i know people tend to smile when you falter
but don’t give up
i’m rooting for you
whatever you’re going through, i hope i see you at the end of it all, walking down the hallway, doing fine.
