You may be lost. You may be alone. But it's not your fault. Even if you push people away. I know, coming from someone on the outside looking in, it's easy to say "don't listen to them" Or "take what they say with a grain of salt." So I won't say that. It doesn't help you feel better anyway. What I will say is what I said before. It's not your fault. I don't know what happened, but if you isolated yourself, that was a reaction. And there's no right or wrong way to react to anything. But not all hope is lost. When you react, you adapt. It's not easy. In fact, it can be quite painful. But you did it once. You can adapt again.
when tragedy hits No one prepares you for it Or tells you how bad it will be Riots in your head Madness in your work Absences of presences Life just isn't the same and I wonder when it will be .. or is this the new normal?
I move from right to left lazily Everything around me is hazy Sometimes a colourful passerby stops for a rest Sometimes they stay, considering me as their nest But they all leave over time Some consider me as grime Some love to nibble on my tips All I rely on is my roots and their grip The sun’s ribbons of light nurture me They play through the waves as I admire their beauty Some days it’s calm and quiet And I can feel the warm sand in my roots Sometimes is rough and rocks and pebbles rip through All of those beautiful green stems I grew But through it all, I grow back To feel the beautiful warm sun touch my tips And the soft touch of sea foams lips ~ 13/2/21
Being strong has nothing to do with strength. It's about your ability to adapt to And overcome obstacles. If you look at it like that, Anyone can be strong. And with all the challenges We face this year, you'll have plenty of practice.
Chameleon, I change Adapting, find myself Lost in time Or ever changing I slip in quietly Treat the hours as skins And I am shedding Every moment, reborn Recreating myself So definition Never quite touches me
