The Mega Sad

Oh lordy drama drama drama. Here the Mega Sad is again and you gonna have to write stuff that makes yours and everyone’s mums capital Worried about your mental health even though this about the healthiest thing you can do for it.

 

The Mega Sad is huge and it dwarfs you, but somehow you can do ok in its shadow. You still have fun, you still have friends, still got love. Still makin shit, and even though it’s sad shit, sad shit can be good too. And it doesn’t mean that your life is bad, or that you need to be consoled or helped. And it definitely don’t mean I need to see a doctor. It just means you gotta use the sad too, that it’s the cloth you gotta cut today.

 

There’s no shortage of sad people to write to, plenty of people on their last legs who don’t have to mope on their lonesome.

 

I ain’t know why I’m makin excuses just to pour my heart out on the internet.

 

Here is the thing I wrote today.

 

I ain’t that sad, mum’s don’t stress.

 

 

White Knuckles

 

This is not the end

 

Though tall waves crash

 

At our thinning shores

 

Though our fields burn

 

And red sparks fall like rain in summer

 

Though people die

 

And die

 

And

 

Die

 

Though this anger

 

Has replaced all hope

 

Though everything we’ve built

 

Fails

 

And falls

 

And eyes above

 

Close

 

Us from their vision

 

Though nothing

 

Will be left

 

Here

 

We will wash up

 

On far off shores

 

With fresh hearts

 

And tear stung eyes

 

We will gasp for breath and

 

Taste clean air once more

 

And though

 

I can’t believe it

 

As I say it

 

It has to be true

 

It has to

 

Because

 

What else is there

 

To hold onto?
