TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH(OUT) IT.

I used to wear my watch on my left hand.

You were fond of being different. so you wear yours on the right.

the word Conform isn’t part of your vocabulary.

I’m not the first one to tell you this, but I’m saying it anyway.

You’re no longer different from everyone else when you decided you’d cry and didn’t care if anybody notices.

when you spoke with great conviction, when you bowed down your head and refused to face everyone.

 

When you said YES, when you’re meant to say NO.

 

I used to wear my watch on my left hand, but I thought I’d give it a whack,

show everyone I ain’t afraid of changes. Put it on the right, one Monday night.

I say, “It feels heavy, it doesn’t feel right”

“It takes a lot of getting used to, my dear.” I heard you say,

and without a trace, vanished into thin air.
