Poem: Distortion

You get so caught up on living ‘right’
You complain that your chest feels tight

You strive so hard to earn more and be more
You are miles away from the ones you adore

You compare yourself to people online
You do not realise the line between fiction and reality is super fine

Worst of all,
You do not even think to ask yourself
Who came up with this idea of living ‘right’?

And is it truly so,
If it means you cannot sleep at night?
