When things get tough,

She cries a little.


Every single time, she contemplates it,

If it’s portraying her as weak,

Or is it okay to cry a bit?

What if it’s actually making her weaker?

What if her biggest fear is creeping it’s way out of the pit?


She holds herself, push back the tears,

But all her efforts aren’t worth,

All it takes is two words,

From someone, her presence who seeks,

And she lets two drops roll down her cheeks.


When things get tough,

She cries a little,


She buckles herself up,

In the end, only she gets a little tough.


Love ❤️

Kiss me she said,
I kissed her hard.
Now with more effort
'My Lips', she said.
I kissed her hard,
but shook her head
and came more close.
"The other lip", she whispered.

looking up at the sky,
wishing to be a part of is
what we all dream of—
then come those
who stitch up their feathers to fly;
to prove that you can own that sky
with your efforts
rather than chillin'
if we really desired for the sky,
we had been one of those
but sadly, we can't make a difference
though it's not late
the difference you'll make, matters

Pale fading jaded moon
Echoes of the same old routes
Subconscious fed what we are read
Some consume such hazy fumes
Supposed repeats become belief
To each eye is dry and empty
When disorientation looms, Jesus
Our efforts count when only viewed

Hard to shake off the grey fog
As the pace of life seems lost
Host a place for creative minds
Build upon what you've been taught
Changing layers of further thought
When heavy clouds pull into view
Energy depletes inside over time
Should you stand affront or wait anew

I started to change,
when I decided to love you
I learned to dress nicely
and gave gifts to you too
I dyed my hair brown
It reminded me of your eyes
And got clothes colored red,
the color you always liked
I tried to loose weight
so you might like me more
And I changed the way I act
I wasn't me anymore,
You started to like me
for all the changes I decided to have
I loved you for who you are
You loved me for who i'm not

It's funny how we start anything with so much zeal, gain momentum and
when we're really close to our destiny,
things become difficult and problematic,
that's when we're really tested...
when the beginner's luck is over.

I just finished reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho which inspired me to write this. It's a must read for everyone!

it takes numerous efforts
to fall in love

but it takes one dreadful lie
to mess the whole thing up
you won't dreadfully lie to someone you truly love.

Have you ever sit and think like this whole time you’re the only one who tryna make someone happy?

And realizing that it’s time for you to stop and let the other person do that from now on?
