They read our unlabeled books
laughing every second
our minds erupt

all my favorite clothes are secondhand
and so are my worst memories
the smell of cigarette smoke on my clothes and my hair is secondhand
i hate cigarettes
i hate their cigarettes the most
my bad ideas and scars are secondhand too
the wind that runs through my disgusting hair im sure
is secondhand
you see nothing is truly mine
nor is anything truly yours
faith, clothes, money, food, existence,
it’s all secondhand i swear
sometimes secondhand means stolen
like my drinks and jewelry
but i haven’t asked for a lot of what i was given
heartbreak, sadness, pain, hatred
i do not steal but i am forced to take them
i think im a secondhand person, if that makes any sense

i think we all know about vices
we think they are purely evil habits
but vices are just bad habits
they can be tiny, tiny things
big vices are drugs, alcohol, gambling, destructive ***
some big vices are hidden like self harm and reckless behaviour
my vices are some small and some hidden
im sure yours are too
we eat until we makes ourselves sick
eat food that’s unhealthy
i drink soda because it makes me want to throw up
my friends and i run around on cold nights without coats
and without supervision
we fall in painful love
and have a million mental breakdowns a week
we cause trouble and leave destruction wherever we go
not because we want to
and sadly not just because we can
because they are our little vices and little voices we can never end
we have to scratch at our skin and rip our hair out
we have to make everyone else hate us
we can’t stop
by definition they are habits
and i regret to tell you they are habits we cannot fix
only we can save us from ourselves, only we can fix these painful vices

This origami stands still,
But time flys quickly.
Bills appearing to crack us apart,
While our family loves tenderly.
As memories were lived happily,
Parcles are packed patheticly.
And the suitcase longing to travel,
Hopefully one thing will never change.
Our love will never grow dry,
This origami stands still.

Certainly there are moments in life when life seems to be absolutely strange.

The moment it was understood that things are over was the same moment in time when the importance of present moment in time was understood, realized and also accepted.

Shortcoming, limitation of scope with regards to the future and rest of the other things were followed by this understanding in the present moment of time.

Strange seems life,
strange, absolutely strange at times.
Still it’s life and life continues

Better to wait for the right moment in time
Better to be cautious, careful and then carefully take the next step and follow the same.

Unexpected things do happen and keep following in life
Still with all the ups and downs in life,
always it's better to be on the safe side.

Agreed that an uncertain future needs to be ascertained,
but then the present cannot be put at stake for the sake of worries about the future.

Strange seems life,
strange, absolutely strange at times.
Still it’s life and life continues.

No matter what new thing comes across mind
No matter how odd, difficult and troublesome is the obstacle in the present moment of time
Still it’s always possible to remove the odd that comes along the way
The only thing that needs to be there in mind is determination, which
makes everything happen at the right moment.

Always remember
You have got one life, in this one life you have got chances and opportunities.
No one really knows how much or how many.

So be wise,
play safe,
but do take a calculated risk.

Time has played a major role in deciding and ascertaining what’s possible and what’s beyond the present moment in time.

So ascertain the future only when the need of the hour says so,
otherwise continue with what’s going on in mind at the present moment in time.

It’s life
Strange seems life,
strange, absolutely strange at times.
Still it’s life and life continues.
“Would you like to know your future?

If your answer is yes, think again. Not knowing is the greatest life motivator.

So enjoy, endure, survive each moment as it comes to you in its proper sequence -- a surprise.”

Tossing and turning
My mind keeps churning
And I am yearning
That Someday my sleep will be returning.

— The End —
