That synonym line is GENIUS! Sorry you're missing your parents, Punit. Find some sunshine, breathe some air. And reframe that you're 'trying to find your place as one among millions' to the fact that that actually means you ARE ONE IN A MILLION. Special. Unique!

There! Sorted. πŸ™Œ

It's too natural to feel that way,

Because,trust me, most days are tough,

I too wish I could give a shoulder Off,

But end up eventually doing stuff.

Oh friend. Life is sometimes what life is. And these moments of feeling down are part of that. I can only agree with what you wrote: you are the one who can take the reigns and ride out of this. But sometimes, the best way is to waste some time and allow yourself to feel sad and down. Try to understand why it is, and learn from that.

And sometimes, we also have to realize that the choices we make, because we think they will bring us the best opportunities in ife, will always come at a cost. That is also part of life. Still, feeling the sadness of that cost, does not mean you made the wrong choice. But if you think you did, you can always choose to reverse.

In any case, I loved this poem. Keep writing.

When I feel bad, I usually turn to book or movies or video games. Any kind of media, actually, as long as it’s old school escapism.
