It’s all going away.
Slipping out, like sand slips out from a fist.
You can’t keep it.
No matter how much you try.
It’ll slip away.
And as time goes by
You want to cry
your heart out.
But nothing comes out
Except the sound of your thoughts jumbled up,
your feelings gurgling in your throat.
Unable to make their way out.
There’s no escape from life
The life you chose
Careful what you wish for
Or just go with the flow
Let life have its way with you.
We are all a little bit broken
We are all a little bit damaged
We are all a little bit tainted.
We all seek solace
But, in our quest to find “that place” where we can enjoy those things someday, we tend to lose our grip on the “now”, the “present”, the reality.
We condition ourselves to overlook the simple joys of life. We get so used to the rut that we forget to appreciate that even everyday things can be special. Well, sometimes.
Sometimes, even mundane things can be the sources of happiness. But we have a goal in mind. So, we don’t pay attention to such trivial things.
If you forget me,
I’m right beside ye.
I’m at the core of your being
I’m in the depth of your soul.
The windmills of your mind.
I’ll brand you with my love.
Brand you with what burns within.
Wear it like a badge of honour.
Oh, will you?
Hatred breeds hatred.
Does that mean love breeds love?
Does compassion breed compassion?
Does kindness breed kindness?
Does affection breed affection?
