DO NOT DIE LIVING IN THE PAST
Please read that again.
Maybe thrice, so it sinks in and is embedded in your mind.
You are here today to live
Feel blessed that you are alive.
Today you have the ability to make someone smile
Make a new friend
Make someone's day.
Don't waste it by wallowing
Because you are contributing to all the negativity in the world
And why be a pessimist if you can be optimistic?
Why walk past someone without a simple and friendly hello?
Why cry about what didn't work out and not focus on what could?
You see, we complain about the world we live in
But we forget we are apart of it
And that we can not only change it
But change it for the better
And make life a little happier
And the world a better place.
So forget about the past
Forget about your failures
And focus on what matters
Because all we have
The truth is, we all take life for granted.
We just think the sun will always come up & we will be there as witness.
What if you never saw the light again?
To live in the darkness is do live in danger.
It is toying with forbidden territory.
Sometimes taboo is fun,
We entertain our bored minds with thoughts of-
What does it all mean exactly?
Light shines even in a dark paradise,
No matter how fall you have fallen,
Yes, the sun still shines.
Even though the sun falls daily,
Remember you still must always rise
in order to see the light-
You must awake in the
m o r n i n g.
No matter how far you want to
j u m p
The light has stopped,
the sun will only wait for so long

Tomorrow is new
And you have the next day too.
Love at first sight? No son, your vision's blurry,
What's encapsulating your feelings is lust
Powerful, but short-lived
Pleasurable through every taste
But after each taste, that void to quench your thirst will remain
If love is a force, lust must be an energy,
Here for the moment, but we don't know how long it will last.
Apparently, we were there
holding each other,
Inside, trying our best
to keep it together.
But, honestly we both knew
Our bodies were there
But, love had left.
That moment when your brain betrays your heart
It happens in slow motion
*and all you can do is watch
These moments are not easily forgotten
