A love so Bright

 

If loving you meant I had to always give you my all

then my love will never be enough to satisfy you,

and if being with you meant I had to be something I’m not

then the love we share is not love at all.

Love is a word so often used but often misconstrued.

It shines bright and its rays can feel warm and radiating

but if its not mutual and respectful

those rays can be overwhelming and its brightness can be blinding.

A love for a Lifetime

 

Does love really last a lifetime

or rather for only a chapter in your life,

and we revisit on occasions when we reminisce on who we once were.

Is love a reflection of who we are at the moment

and that love can change at anytime?

Are we bound to always seek in others what we can search within ourselves?

Or is our past relationships merely sign posts to signal future partners

where we’ve been hurt or found joy.

A chance to change

In every moment we strive to do better

with every step we hope we are that much closer.

In the depths of our hearts we hold what we deem most precious

to scared to share with the world what makes us smile

in fear the world will take that and turn it to sorrow.

We are more than pieces on a global chess board

and our lives holds more meaning than slaving away for someone’s else dream.

We are unstoppable, unpredictable and unbelievable in our strengths and weaknesses

because no matter what situation we find ourselves in

the chance to change always presents itself.

Opposites

 

The battle between idealism and reality

are two opposites that will never reconcile.

In pursuit of an ideal tomorrow

I’ve forgotten what is most important

which is the chance to live for today.

Tomorrow will always be there,

but yet it never gets any closer

and we gaze at Yesterday through our rear view mirrors

in hopes of capturing our former glories.

Maybe the answer lies in the middle

living out our dreams without ignoring the truths of today.

 

 

Enigma

I long for a place that I neither hear, see, smell or touch

yet has captured my heart,

and holds my soul in its hands.

What I seek is akin to a world that is emerging

so full of life and vigor

An innocence so gentle and pure.

A realm of imagination with no limits and no blemish,

and more importantly no judgement

with everyone enthralled with the art of creating,

and sharing with others wholeheartedly.

Unfulfilled Potential

The shadows of yesterday’s shame still linger today

like a stain that will never be cleansed no matter how hard we try.

Our greatest weakness has always been our fears

and I use to think it was due to fear of failure or expectations,

but maybe our greatest fear is what if we actually do conquer our fears?

What will hold us back from achieving and realizing our true potential.

Does unity amongst all scare us to the point we’ll see ourselves for who we are and not what we are?

Too Late

 

I think time is a device created by the mind

to foster the idea that life is either passing you by

or moving too quickly.

In order for you to ”catch up”

it limits you to thinking in terms of

age, appearance, job, marriage…

and as you chase and chase this mythical dream

you lose yourself

until its too late.

Immortal

The heart doesn’t lie

but it’s not clear either.

Indecisiveness is quite common,

and messages can at times be misunderstood.

Not everyone who compliments you is genuine,

and not everyone who criticizes you is coming from a place of deceit.

After awhile it seems

Life is no longer black or white,

but a mix between the two

and we have to learn the difference along the way through trial and error.

The day we learn silence and experiences are life’s hidden treasures

is the day we cease to be humans and become immortals.
