A Present or A Penalty

“…..today is a gift. That is why, it is called the present.”

You probably have heard or read this quote, a million times. But it only speaks to you, when you are on cloud 9. It might even work, if you are somewhere around it. But what to go with, when you feel like you have nothing to go with.

From my understanding, I think our moods or situations cannot stop today from being a gift. It might not be the gift, one is hoping for, or wants at that time, but you will come around to it.

When you get a gift, you don’t throw it at the giver’s face just because you don’t like it. Instead you smile and say thank you. You put aside that gift for later use. That’s what you do. You do not lash out,  just because someone didn’t get you what you wanted. That’s how it is with today and life.

In life, we have to face some things, go through experiences, that we wish, we never had to. We question them, even lash out at our creator, for putting us through all that. But do you know, He also gets us out of it. All we have to do is never give up.

We can take a break, cry our eyes out, but we should never quit. The direction might not be what we have planned. But then again, can we ever be sure, that where we are heading, is where we want to be.

Think about it.

Still Your Baby Girl…

She is big and strong

You raised her well

But hey mom and dad

Don’t leave just yet

 

She is still your baby girl

 

She still gets scared

She still cries under her pillow

She still needs you 

She still wants you

 

She is still your baby girl

 

Her fears have grown from a boogeyman to real challenges

Her smile may not always be real

She might not say much about it

 

But she is still your baby girl

Oh, dear parents

Do not leave

Not quite yet…

Can’t Let Go

I can’t talk about you,

Without hesitation,

Without crying my eyes out,

Without going back in my head,

To the day, I lost you.

 

I may hold back my tears,

Because they think that,

Now is the time,

To let go.

 

But I tried and failed

I think I am gonna hang on to you for a while

Or maybe ’til the end
