If you can bear it, you have not reached your limit yet.
You are stronger than you think…
Don’t give up now!
Like an undecided ghost
I lingered on the threshold of two worlds
Lost in the silence of their million miles
I waddled through thick fog and fiery furnace
They passed through me a zillion times
They left no traces of their passage
Save their tales on my lips
To touch a million and more lives
What if I didn’t go out that day?
What if I had missed that day’s lectures?
What if I had ran faster?
What if I didn’t lose my leg?
I have never been able to construct any acceptable scenarios for my what ifs.
Today, I couldn’t stop myself from wandering through their endless maze.
Where would I be if that day never was?
Who would I be?
I can’t say precisely, but one thing is clear; my scars made me who I am today.
If I hadn’t them, I would be ordinary; just plain old me.
I think of all the lies that felt real
All the truths that turned out to be lies
And those truths that drowned in the ocean of doubt and fear,
And realised how true untruths can be.
Will love still be love
When all deem it wrong
When the people in love
Are not supposed to be?
Will love still be love
When no one thinks it’s decent
Safe the people in love
And all they have to prove is their love?
Is love still love
When the head says to the heart
“This feeling is so wrong ”
And the heart whispered back,
“But it feels so right”?
I am the bough
I am the tree
creaking in the wind
outside at night
I am the root
beneath the earth
I am the fly
entangled in a wild dance
of fate and faith
No one gets out of life alive;
Enjoy it while you still have it
If my eyes could speak
They would tell the tale
Of the the unshed tears
I sealed in
Just to be strong
I should have known
We do not share love
We share something deeper
Deeper than love, passion
We share a bond not of everyday
A bond that will outlive us
A bond beyond time and age
It’s always there between us
Drawing us closer
We share it
We never can have it
As I gaze at the sky
On this bright moon night
I think of a home of bright light
Beyond the starry sky
Where darkness has no place
Where sadness cannot reside
My soul craves its warm embrace
The home of bliss for the blessed
