Does it really get better?
Or do things just change,
seemingly different than they were
the day, month, year before?
Comparitively, in hindsight
you may think things are better
While in truth you are no better off
because even as the world around you
has continued to evolve, move ahead,
improve for the better,
you have simply sat,
unmoving - stationary.
Things do not get magically better
without effort on your own part.
Stop believing in empty platitudes.
Stop looking for the rainbow
over the next horizon and
create your own pot of gold.
