I have to Glorify the Moon

I have to glorify the moon
Though it only reflects
And do not shine.

I have to decorate my room with roses
Though they are artificial
And have no fragrance.

I have to write you a thousand poems
Though you don’t reply
And ignore me consistently.

I have to continue grinding
Though it yields no results
Cause I’m still broke as before.

I have to continue living
Though nothing makes sense
Cause life is just empty and void.

And I have to continue writing
Though I have other paths to tread
Cause I don’t know how else to survive.
