A storm rages on Trees thrash and break Windows and ears split from the roar of thunder Colossal building shake and bend Rain floods the road Seeps in basements and cars and the earth Waves throw their full weight at the beach Birds and Foxes have long since burrowed Sensing the coming storm
Yet at the same time Not far away A gentle breeze hushly moves the tall grasses in fields Tickles the leaves of blooming trees Weaves its way through the towns and over the waters The people roam the beaches and streets with smiles on their faces and the sun on their skin
Everywhere has its own storm in its own time
And everyone has their own battle at their own time
Be kind you never know if someone lost a friend Be kind you never know if someone lost a pet Be kind you never know if someone lost a job Be kind you never know if someone had a bad day Take time for yourself Talk before it before it's words that's never said Pause but not to long before it becomes a memory Be sad Be happy Be angry Be frustrated Be kind you never know if some just lost a friend Be kind you never know if someone just lost a pet Be kind you never know if someone just lost a job Be kind you never know if someone just lost had a bad day Be kind there's enough hate in the world Be kind.
so much i learned about love from people who don't know how to love. i've learned from lost souls, unhealed fears, saints to sinners. love is not a holy father but a confusing religion yet to unravel. the way i finally learned to see is to be completely blind. that holding too much saturation in front of your eyes caused you color-blind. that i can't fix someone who is too comfortable at the state of being broken. falling in love with a poet like me meaning i'm gonna remember your tiniest speckles. your blurriest memories. your brightest hues. packed them into a fine story that i can re-read and then write again. from great california to meaningless banka. or a ***** like jakarta. with you, i prayed to the right God but with a wrong religion. so instead, He changed the current. my faith is re-new and flesh-fresh. He kept making it hurt until i numb enough to know that it was not meant to be. so i let go. of any claims but my worth. you taught me that even it was love that you had offered, love is not enough reason. to hell about your "oh, the grass is greener on the other side" because it'll decay. the next morning, the silence already too loud. the oceans already too vast. but i'll show you what is that to have a heart. as messy as it is, as grande as what it capable of.
here i am, far from your grasp. a story you no longer can hear because deaf makes it way to your ear. blame it on our parents. the difference is, i'm no longer listening to them anymore. they too made of distorted glass and wrongdoings. the difference is, no matter what was the time and place, i chose you from any other things. but now, i ******* choose me.
the rest, it'll fall in the most sensible and right way. for love is not perfect but this home deserves spotless love. a purified love, the same amount of fight. a light guiding every lost bird in the uneasy nights.
