This is*


This is how to climb out of a warm bed when you’re still tired; This is how to pretend you’re not tired; This is how to dress; This is how to look busy while you think of other things; This is what to say when asked why you're always so happy; It's easy to look happy; This is how to remember; This is how to forget; This is how to pretend you’ve forgotten; This is how to fall in love; This is how to pretend you’re not in love; This is how to let love flutter past your fingertips (again) and move on; This is how to laugh when a voice slices your soul; This is how to hurt people you love; This is how people you love hurt you; This is how to breathe; In and out, no matter what, remember; This is what's important; This is what’s at stake

*This is a blatant rip off of the great Jamaica Kincaid
