another candle on the cake

they told me to place

another birthday, another year

surrounded by my family and Friends

but I don't think I've ever felt this alone

I promised myself so many things

I'd do by this day, this year, this age

I hope I've been able to make myself proud

did I make it?

I would've asked myself this today

yes. yes, I did make it

but at what cost?

I wouldn't say I'm happy but

didn't I promise that to myself too?

or is this hollow hope all I'll ever get?


once, maybe, they were milestones 

but all they'll ever be is 

another candle on the cake
