Back To Square One

I’ve turned over a new leaf.
I’m taking the time
to get to know myself;
I’m doing something
I’ve never done before.

Even before I became of age,
I was too busy thinking
I always needed to have someone
to make me feel loved and appreciated.

But my fantasy and reality
were like night and day.
I ended up feeling more isolated
than when I was alone.

What I Regret

I regret not trying.
I regret giving up because of fear.
Even if my voice quivers,
I’m glad I tried
to get out of my comfort zone.

Different Plans

I want this.
And I crave that.
I make plans for this.
And I make milestones for that.
I tell myself it’s my life
and I’m in charge of every aspect.
I work everything out
down to the last detail
but nothing ever goes by the book.
My creative ideas and God’s master plan
for my life are two different stories.

Selfless Help

Let’s help each other.
We’re all one family.
Let’s not look for anything in return.
We’re all in the same boat.
At the end of the day,
life does not discriminate.
Nothing is promised to anyone of us.

Looks Can Be Deceiving

No matter how much
someone smiles.
No matter how much
you think you know them.
Don’t bet your life
on what you see.
Looks can be deceiving.
As long as you don’t need anything,
you’ll always be good friends.

Raw and Unedited

I close my eyes
and savour
the pain sometimes.
To the depths of my soul,
I’ll reach down
to that raw and unedited
place for inspiration.

Grain of Salt

Take everything
with a grain of salt.
Never mind the cliché.

Everyone will have an opinion
of who they think you are.
Doesn’t mean that they are right.
You should know yourself
better than anyone else.
If not, take a lesson.

Chosen and Uniquely Made

It’s always a good day to be alive.
Even when you don’t look or feel too well.

You are loved more than you’ll ever know.
You are chosen and uniquely made,
there’s no duplication.

“Luck” Doesn’t Stand a Chance

Luck doesn’t stand a chance
while God is in the picture.
There’s no competition or rivalry.
It’s just a copped-out word
that brings forth instant gratification.
It stings to think that
God can make the impossible…
possible at all
so He often gets no credit.
“Luck” seems like a better explanation
when extraordinary things happen.
