On Truth

Never get so used to a lie that it begins to become your truth, in such a way that even when the truth presents itself clearly,  you are still quite blinded, or rather, imprisoned by that lie you are unwilling to let go. This could probably be because you can’t imagine how your life would be without that lie in your life- a lie you’ve gotten extremely accustomed to, to forfeit easily. 

But really, no lie is worth living. The truth, no matter how unfriendly,  no matter how late it decides to surface,  is actually what you need in your life, to live as you should. Embrace truth and let it set you free from the lie you’ve been imprisoned. 

Yesterday’s Mess

There was a heart once nesh,

now it’s all marble, no feels,

nestled in a concave of apathy.
In it lies yesterday’s mess,

in such a profusion quite blinding,

and with great pains, quite killing.
Certain sad pasts have caused a pestilence,

afflicting the mind and being with void,

an emptiness that doesn’t want to be filled at all.
Shattered heart of yesterday,

please think about today,

and realise the blessings you keep pushing away.

Opportunities 

To all those who have lost any opportunity, this is to let you know that opportunities do repeat themselves. Fine, it might seem somewhat difficult to obtain such opportunity back, but the point is, they will definitely come again.
Like Tye Tribbet’s song says, “if He did it before he will do it again”. So, please don’t spend your life wallowing over spilled milk. Whatever you might have lost, just keep believing that the God of second chances will  restore them back to you

‘Forget’

Learn to move on from that which hurts you. I wouldn’t say you should let go, cos the truth is, we don’t really let go of certain memories, no matter how hard we try. We might think we did let go, only to find ourselves being reminded of them, probably by just a gesture, a person, or even a thing. So, yeah, letting go is out of the question. 

The best you can do is move on GENUINELY, that, whenever those sad memories are revived from their subconscious, you wouldn’t give a tear or feel a pain in your chest. Rather, you would give a smile and contented sigh that says “that was just life being life, I’m better now”-This is one way to ‘forget’. 

P.S: Make peace with that sour past of yours, and you’ll realise just how less stingy it feels when reminded of it.
