I Am Trying

“The problem is.. well Ansley, the problem is that you aren’t trying.”

I am trying.

I have tried.


I have been trying for so many damn years!

You say I’m not trying.

Have you noticed the mask I wear?


It’s called a fucking smile idiot.

You’re so funny.

Yeah, see me laughing at your jokes?

Even if they deeply offended me,

Or had me crying for hours.


You see me here.

I am trying.

And comments like that aren’t helping.

“Oh Ansley, I’m sor-“

No. You can’t apologize.


Should’ve done that months ago.

I’m trying.
