The road is rough
The times are tough
Feels like hands are tied down with a cuff
The path is stony
The people are phony

But, my consciousness is...
I will make it anyway
I will stay happy all the way
I will remain just, never go astray
Negative words, I won't say
Tomorrow will be a better day!
We pray
Not only to be eased of hardships
But to be blessed with the ability
Of overcoming them.

Inspired by The Kite Runner.
I think that's what Amir missed.

Ease my wayward mind,
relieve the tension I hide.
Put aside all my pride,
address evil deep inside.
I must learn to love my life,
invite others with open arms.
I cannot do this alone,
one man can't make a home.

I never meant to feel like this
It came like a sudden fright
Crazy as I am
I’m not so spontaneous
I keep my love out of the light
A true nocturnal creature I am
An animal plain as can be
All the motions that I cram
A display for all to see

Yet none see it
None but me
And maybe

I don’t know what you will say
Somehow that makes this greater
I should be frightened
Scared and trembling
Yet I feel as the victor
I don’t know if you’ll see like this
I hope I never find out
Your heart is mine
So smooth like wine
Come see
You won’t want to miss

Yet none see it
And yet you do
And maybe
That’s enough for two
I never meant to feel like this... But now I'm glad that I do.

one day
it will be easy to breathe
my lungs will inhale flowers
and honey
it will be second nature
like riding a bicycle
like tying a shoe
like swallowing a pill
and i will hold on
tightly and
with shaking hands
until then
feeling very overwhelmed lately. trying to hold onto the hope that it will not always feel this way. i will find my peace.

Somehow in a fuzzy haze I now see more clearly
a filtered type of life in which thoughts run so easy
No anxiety, distractions; one thought, one at a time
Who knew being hungover could turn out so fine
definitely still crunk at work ffs

Is it
hypocritical
of me
to still pray to ***
to ease my pain
when I know
I'm the one
who caused it?

Those that lack compassion will never
utilize their second chances
and I am not saying this to be romantic
I am just letting you know what is true;

the only difference between

love &
        hate
                is

what you see inside of you.
Be easy my friends.
