as days flows on embers turn to ashes
passion dies along with us
my eyes cried with my heart
blood spluttered between my breast
fear sets in and I was lost and confuse
alone reflecting over my situation
should I allow fear to control me?
I’ve lived in fear for far too long
afraid to venture in the world
but my wish is too great to try to vanquish my fear
it happened but it opened my eyes
to the harsh reality of life wishing to go back
but there’s no way the path behind me was full of shards
if I go back my feet would bleed by those broken splinters
of the past mistakes taken along the way on my life’s journey
Wanting to go back to where I came from or hide from the world
and stay in my silent solitude pampering stress and anxiety
whichever route I take it’s heartbreaking and challenging
choosing to move forward in return, I lost my innocence.
then it occur to me failures teaches us to grow, to evolve
to persevere, to compromise and understand life’s
complexity and gain more knowledge in the world around us.
Thinking of my past mistakes is not daunting after all
I smiled and let go of my pain and sorrow and
I thank God realizing without all those trials and anguish
I will not grow spiritually and emotionally. I promise to make my pain
a stepping stone to bridge the gap of my present and the future
a step to move forward towards my life’s journey
for the betterment of my life and the world around me.
