Is This Life Yours?

They tell you, you are good for nothing,

Are you going to believe them?

They tell you, this is not your path to walk on,

Are you going to step off?

 

This is your life,

And you hold the key to your own door.

The path is going to be bumpy,

Warn you, you might get scratched on the way.

 

It is not going to be easy,

Finding your footing in this big, big world.

But I can tell you this,

It will be worth it.

 

So, princes and princesses

Are you going to let people take away your crown,

Or are you going to chin up and wear it like you’re meant to be?

Your choice.

JJJ

Wear your crown right, try not to let people bring you down and make you stray from achieving your goals and dreams.

Just A Dream

You were standing there, right in front of me

Smiling that sweet smile of yours

 

My mind said,”Not possible”.

My heart screamed, “Embrace it.”

 

I ran and hugged you tight

It felt so real, so comfy

 

Thought I will never let go

But then my eyes opened

 

I sat up

Ran my eyes around the room

Searching for you

 

How can it be?

Same room, same me

But no you

 

The reality hit me…hard

A tear rolled down

 

It was only just a dream……

Reality hurts…

The Darker Side

Memories play in her mind

Some lost to unconsciousness

Some forgotten over time

 

How much time has passed

One look at now

One look at then

Seems to say: Quiet a lot

 

Back then, things seemed pretty easy

With her family by her side

She had nothing to fear

With her friends there for her

She couldn’t have been more blessed

 

Then she met

The darker side of life

She came to know about losing someone dear

She learned to live without someone, she couldn’t have imagined to

 

She came across

The darker side of people

She learned how betrayal feels

She learned the things, she wished, she wouldn’t have

 

And it changed her

For good or

For bad

She couldn’t decide just yet…

After a While

After a while

You give up on people, who once meant so much

Just because you no longer meant anything to them

 

After a while

You stop believing in their excuses and lies

You just stop believing in them

 

After a while

You build up your walls way high

You do not close your doors to them

But your heart just had enough

 

After a while

You learn to flourish your soul

All on your own

Instead of waiting for someone to do it for you

 

After a while

You learn to let go and

Let it be…

You are free!!

Temporary Stop

Here, people come and go

 Its not for a permanent stay

You will not be here for long

Its just a temporary delay

 

Here, don’t get too comfortable

It is not going to last

Before you will know it

It will be over with a blast.

 

All that you love,

All that you collect,

Will be washed away.

 

There will be nothing left

Except what you take forward

 

So, as long as you stay

Do something permanent,

That stays even after you are gone

Gone forever…

This life is a temporary stop. All that is today, might not be tomorrow. So, make the most of it and collect the good things, to take forward.

Hold On to Your Memories!

How time passes

In a blink of an eye

That’s how

 

At one second, you are living the moment

The next it is all gone

Nothing more than a memory

 

All you can do now, is think about it

Because it ain’t coming back

 

You wish to live it again

But that time has passed

 

You think about deleting it out of your life

But it is like engraved in your mind

 

You try to push it back

Way back in the dark

Where it can never see the light

 

But if you do that,

What will you have to cherish?

 

When the times will get hard,

From where you will get your hope?

 

When you will get down,

How will you get back up?

If you let go of all those unforgettable memories,

                           all those remarkable moments,

How will you find your way in life???

****

We all carry with us a ‘bundle of memories‘ that we love and cherish. Sometimes they might seem unbearable as we cannot turn back time and relive them. At some point in life, when we say things like ‘time changes, people change…‘ or when we lose the people we made memories with, we think of getting rid of those memories or wishing that we never had them, just to protect our hurting heart.

Do not let go. Hold on to them. They make you who you are. They are your light, your hope, your strength and definitely NOT your weakness.
