Someone once told me
"Happiness is like a butterfly;
the more you chase it, the more it eludes you.
But if you turn your attention to other things,
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."
I waited and waited
I was always happy for everyone else
I took the crap I was forced to deal with everyday
I worked on trying to get my homework in on time
I tried to practice my cello every night
I went to birthday parties
Listened to music
But guess what?
The butterfly never came
I am slowly
in mental health
I still try to be happy
For everyone else
But the butterfly will not come
It will never come
