Once I thought,
that the most beautiful flower
grows in the middle of fields.
And among the lush green,
she sways and dances with the breeze.
Poems, poets, poetry, writing, poetry challenges
I look at her as she dreams her mind away,
like she always does.
And I cannot find the words I want to say,
every one of my thoughts seems to have run away.
She smiles quietly and holds my hand,
and stars in far away galaxies would jubilantly dance.
My heart pumps more blood to my mind that does not understand,
how can a simple girl own my world with a single glance?
At some point the rivers of your life will suddenly stop,
your time will have come to leave this world behind.
And that little heart of yours will cease to hop,
while your soul starts floating towards the light it tries to find.
The thing about life is,
that you never know..
You never know who you hurt with the words you spoke,
or whose heart you accidentally broke.
You never know who you damaged every bit of their soul,
or whose shine you mercilessly stole.
If you ever believe in anything so strongly,
then I hope you do believe in you.
And dismiss all the shit that was said to you, wrongly,
along with that damaging self-talk you tell yourself too.
I hope you realise before it’s already too late.. that there isn’t time.
There isn’t time for you to feel worthless,
There isn’t time for you to feel sorry for yourself,
There isn’t time to sink into the waters of the past,
There isn’t time to recount the failures of yesterday,
There isn’t time to dwell on relationships that didn’t last,
There isn’t time to repress the words you always wanted to say..
as if every face she met was her sun.
You look at me,
with eyes full of light
Like a hundred windows to your soul
opening so bright.
You smile, and I,
struck with such unparalleled beauty,
cannot but smile at your pretty face
as the sun behind us fades.
what we wish to see
of other people we’re dying to be
what we’d like to hear
what we want to see disappear
that the more you give thanks ,
the more you receive.
the more you recite the good moments,
the more they come running towards you.
the more you wonder in awe at this vast Earth,
the more you are born again like new.
As the plane climbs up the stairs to where a million stars lie,
My head seems to swim through the perfect black sky
Beyond me are adventures only fate does know
Sometimes alone is where all your answers lie;
Sometimes in the wilderness of your thoughts, you’re no longer shy;
Sometimes deep in the silence of solitude, there you find your soul;
Sometimes in the midst of your own space, you get to realise your whole.
It takes courage to admit that the life you’re currently living isn’t making you any happier..
It takes courage to realise that your life is tailored to a size not your own..
It takes courage to notice that the path you’re walking through is not meant for you..
It takes courage to become aware that your inner values do not match the daily things you do..
It takes courage to finally stand up and admit that all the dreams you once had have fallen through..
May your suffering grant you even more hope
May your suffering prove to be your lifesaving rope
May your suffering help you unlock your deepest passion
May your suffering fill you with the sincerest type of compassion
The moment I saw you, was the moment the butterflies in my stomach flew
The moment I saw you, I met the reality of a dream I once drew
The moment I saw you, I saw my reality anew
Your presence makes my heart leap in disbelief
My puzzle pieces have finally found their matching piece
As you go through your worst of the worst,
I want you to know, someone has been through it and out before
someone has felt this pain of heart before,
someone has grown this hopeless before,
someone has thought he’d lost it all before,
One more day
One more day you pull yourself through
One more day you search for any clue
One more day you choose to see the light
One more day you decide to fight
If I may, I’d like to start again.
If I may, I’d like to begin anew.
As if nothing ever happened.
As if hurt never took place.
As if today was the start of a new phase.
Bring this peeking calendar down.
Along with the tedious eyes of this town.
I walk away.
I walk away out of the guilt.
I walk away out of the shame.
I walk away never again the same.
I walk away from you who caused me pain.
I walk away from the the plethora of feelings you used to feign.
I lost myself in your eyes
Lost my very own existence
Lost the pieces that tied me to my past
Drowning in your ocean so deep
Waters so clear
Like a fortune-teller’s crystal ball
Questions questions on my mind,
Curious questions of every kind.
Who am I in the first place?
Would it help if I looked at my face?
Or would I get lost again and find no trace?
I left it all
Once and for all
Everything that was there
Did not deserve my care
I cherished my own soul one day
Emerged out of the dull surface of clay
I opened my eyes and saw the dawn
Crossed the many limits that were drawn
