There are times when we lose everything,
times when we feel as if the world is falling upon us,
there are also times when we just want to dive off a cliff,
and times when we just want to be away from a group of people and hide in a corner and cry.

But after those times,
there comes a beautiful miracle.
A miracle that will change our life,
our hearts open up like the wings of a butterfly,
and everything starts to look beautiful again.

We are whole again,
we are new, beautiful and we avoid all the negativity,
i thank God for those times because it's the most wonderful feeling,
to feel loved, honored and respected.

I know now that everyone has to have patience,
to see the bud bloom into a rose.
Miracles do happen

In a place where there are no souls,
I wander and wander like a stranger.
i know not where my grave is,
but i do know where my heart is.

i follow my heart and search for the light,
the light that used to guide me when i was alive,
but all i see is darkness,
and i wonder whether i will ever be more alive?

is this reality or is it a dream?
i am stuck in this loop for a long time.
please, someone help me get away,
because i am scared,
i am scared,
i am scared.
Often, all we need is a little help.

I now understand,
that fairy tales are just made-up stories,
to hide the fact that we are truly lonely,
in this devastated and crumpled world,
that's twisted and tangled like a ball of yarn.

I wish I could dive into a storybook,
and be the princess who would run away with her prince,
i wish all these nightmares would end,
so that i can sleep peacefully again.

The troubles we're going through,
is like a never-ending test,i just want to escape,
get-away, turn around and run away.
Fairy tales are not true,i understand now,
they are just your imagination, a stranger in your own **** world.
Sometimes, we just gotta accept reality.

Can we please not pretend to like each other?
It hurts,
the sweetness of your voice hurts.
the truth hurts.
But every time you look at her,
I die each time.

Please be raw with me.
Either leave me,
or keep me alive.

Just don't place me in the dark,
I'm not your puzzle piece anymore.
Think twice before you love someone. Because once you're committed, there's no going back.

There were so many sacrifices,
so many lives taken,
so many lives given,
and yet we are ungrateful.

We want more happiness,
so we neglect what we have right now.
We become greedy for more,
for more and more of everything.

Why? Why can't our hearts be satisfied
with what we have?
Why do we need this and that?
and everything the rich have?

Can't we just live our lives the way it is written to be lived?
Can't we, for once, ignore the evil
and turn to good?

Is it so hard for us?
Is it so hard that if you don't dream
you won't live?
Let's not forget to be thankful for everything we have and don't have. After all, life is too short to be greedy.

It was never about trust or promises or destiny, was it?
All you cared about was money, your life, your health, and your lusts.

You threw me away as if I was a crumpled paper,
my words didn't matter to you,
neither did my feelings.

Yet I stayed by your side,
because I thought that I could see a change in you.
I thought I would...
Alas, I only wasted my time and yours,
and also the food I cooked.
Do not let them use or control you. You're much better off without them. It will be hard but try. Eventually, you will feel lighter again just like the day when you fell in love.

I want to reach new heights,
fly like there's no tomorrow,
I want to scoop the world in my palms
and protect it from deadly folks and deep hollows.

It's my dream,

a simple desire,

am I asking for too much?

or am I just being naive?

It pains me to see everything crumble away,
pains me to see that we're living at the end of the days,

it pains me to just stare at the stars,

and wish to vanish as far

as my soul can escape.
Sometimes, we must realize the world we're living in and try to think about how we can save it from turning into ashes and dust.
