We won't always remain who we think we are.
By chance, hard work, or just through
Our natural trajectory of life,
We transform into a stronger, wiser, better, us.
I used to fail physical education.
Never into sports, hated it with a passion.
Now I exercise thrice a week -
Skateboarding, ice skating, muay thai, & yoga.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still physically weak.
Only liking exercise
Just enough to be healthy.
When my first love broke my heart,
I felt like being torn apart.
Heart swelling like it's been stung
By all the hurt I couldn't contain.
But as I grew larger my heart stretched,
Both love and pain.
I was never one for religion,
And surprised myself when I started reading,
Thinking about God,
I always thought I had a gift for pessimism.
"Why so emo?" they liked to chime in.
It took a spiral to the sightless abyss,
Before I found comfort in the darkness.
With blinded eyes I've seen a fraction
Of the world's beauty,
With a thirst for more,
To scents and sounds I've never been.
Life finds us in funny ways,
We are capable of more than we think.
Doing things greater
Than we ever imagined.
Change is the only constant,
And to change is to grow,
To grow is to live.
To remain stagnant is to regress,
And that is the opposite of living.
