I am a shadow,
In the mind of the creator,
Who told me long ago,
When I was just an idea,
That this life would lead you,
Then it would bleed you,
And eventually you would end up with me.
No matter how much you love someone you can’t change them. I think being a woman it is a hard fact to realize and accept. We want so badly for the people that we love to be apart of our lives in the best way, even when they aren’t. Those of us that find ourselves in situations like this love the people who are stuck. We find that we might be moving forward but those around you either aren’t or can’t keep up.
There are often many times that we overlook or dismiss something that we think we already know all about, yet if stop and take a look we might find something completely new. We see a movie or book in the same genre or a remake, God forbid, and we think oh no I am going to hate that, when if we just picked it up or watched it, we might be pleasantly surprised. As they say “don’t judge a book by its cover”, we have to remember that and maybe start applying it in other areas of our life.
A place seen in the sun,
So far away yet near you can taste it,
The drip of honey on your lips,
That tease with the tempting idea of success,
Though that offers no guarantees.
A life that is yet to be revealed,
Moments and events not experienced,
The future unknown for a reason,
To give you the chance to live it,
For if it was already told to you,
Where would the life in living be?
Sometimes we see thing but don’t believe,
Why hide in the lies when it’s truth we seek,
All the things before you yet unrealized,
Life is hard is a fact, that can’t be denied.
Sometimes it feels like no matter what we do, we will always be struggling. No matter how far forward we go, that we will always be just behind getting a step ahead. I guess some might say that is pessimistic, but is that just being realistic? We are always told by others that we have to have hope and look to the future, but what if we just can’t do that? Are we doomed to just stay in limbo and just waste our lives away? Can we ever escape or get out of that?
Let my heart speak words unclear,
Those you have not heard before,
Which will give your life meaning,
When you put them into action.
Death sucks! Yeah I know what an opening line right. We all have to face it and deal with it throughout our lives. We not only have to deal with our own mortality but also that of those around us. I recently lost someone close to me and although I didn’t think it would affect me much, I was wrong. It is hard when you care and love someone to know that they are gone. Life is about living and doing, but death, that is just it, it’s death, it’s final.
Working for a living, what does that mean? We can go to a job and break our backs, at the end of our time, we get sent off, sometimes by our choice and other times not, for what? What do our jobs bring us? Besides of course a pay check. Should we be looking for something else out of work, is there something more that we can find there? Work is something that we do, but is it who we are, can it be a mix of both or one? Do we want our jobs to be the thing that defines us, is work or legacy or just a part of our life?
