I didn’t give up…

I wrote this in high school, around eight years ago. But it still gives me hope. Sometimes I feel like the things I wrote in my early days are better than what I write now. Maybe because they came straight from the soul…. It’s a feeling that can’t be put into words….

I didn’t give up
I walked on glass and slowly I fell
Destiny came by and said, “it was fates will.”
Hope eagerly screamed this isn’t the end
Get back up and do as you dreamed
But I fell so hard that no one picked me up
Failure was laughing telling me to stop
Doubt walked over me and trampled me down
I couldn’t get up, but I couldn’t lose
This was my journey and my right to choose
I quickly rose up to get what was mine
Only foot prints of blood followed me behind
This wasn’t the end, I had to go very far
I lost only a battle, but the war was still on

Am I yours?

I am the taunts of failure
the echoes of death
I am the breaking of hope
the words of a last breath
I am the cruelty of fate
the loss of a friend
I am the road untaken
the path to an end
I am the days of despair
the empty droughts of a desert
I am the bird without wings
the loneliness of hurt
I am the sad farewell
the sorrow in goodbye
I am the pain of a wound
the salt in tearing eyes
I am the ruins of a canvas
the sound of fading colors
I am the wreckage of storms
the parting of old lovers
I am the closing of doors
the breaking of dreams
I am the silence of helplessness
I am the wails of grief
I am everything unpleasant
everything disliked
I am poison
venom
I am the uncured
but however I am
Just promise me
I’m yours.

I’m not mine, but can I be yours?
Poetry from: Curing My Venom

Eleven harsh lessons I’ve learned through life

Ten harsh lessons I’ve learned through life

  1. Sometimes the people that are supposed to pick you up will be the reason for your fall. They’ll walk over you and then blame you for crashing.
  2. People will take advantage of your kindness. They’ll strip you of everything because they want to cover themselves up.
  3. People who mean the world to you, will choose the world over you.
  4. The world will be on your side as long as you’re winning
  5. Just because you’re a kind person that does not mean that everyone else will be kind to you. The world won’t reciprocate the same attitude you put into it.
  6. Having morals and being ethical will sometimes break you to the point where you’ll lose your faith in everything.
  7. Being righteous and just will sometimes be the reason for your failure. Taking the right route will lead you to the wrong destination.
  8. Desperate times create desperate people, who are broken and tend to break others, so they could feel whole.
  9. Sometimes you can work hard and smart, but you will still fail because luck (destiny, God, life) wasn’t in your favor
  10. Life has favorites. It picks and chooses who to destroy and who to create. You’re an experiment.
  11. “God does not play dice.” Everything happens for a reason, but how you react to these events depends on you.
