Spread Your Wings

Cus what doesn't break you makes you stronger,
or so they say.

God place certain people in our lives,
to help us, to hurt us, to leave us, to love us,
& to shape us into who we are meant to be.

While in the dumps,
I thought a lot.
I thought about the kind of person I want,
the kind of person I've turned to,
the kind of person I want to become.
& I know I wouldn't achieve anything down there, in the dumps.

So it's time, to take flight.
To fight for what I want, what I think I deserve.
& to give what I can.

Wait for me;
I'm coming home, to you.

Broken Mirror

"Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same."

I have loved, and lost.
Lost myself while chasing love,
lost the knowledge of what love is,
lost someone who loves me.

I have changed so much.
I used to love impulsively, and deeply.
Even though we might have a lot of disagreements,
but I'll fight to keep us together.
I'll endure all hardships, and never give up on us.
But now, I'm afraid.
Afraid to love. Afraid of getting hurt.
Refusing to put in efforts.
Refusing to fight for love.

This has to stop.
I've got to find myself back.
Pick myself up.
I may be lonely but I'm not deprived of love.
I receive so much from the people around me.
And I will learn to love again.

They say "Treat others the way you want to be treated".
I've always stood by this principle.
But in this society, it doesn't work this way.
Playing mind games to protect oneself,
yet hoping that people will be true to you.
Or being genuine to others,
yet being treated like a fool.

It's so tiring. Really.
I'm done with games.
I will live by my principle, and be true,
to others and to myself.
Cus at least I keep my conscience clean.

"When you're in love and you get hurt, it's like a cut.
It will heal with time, but the scars will never fade.
