Life can be funny,life can be crazy!
The friend you know today becomes a stranger tomorrow
You make choices that seem so right yet feel so wrong;
The more I encounter life daily, the more i develop a different perspective towards life,
There's always this new twist to my notion on life by each passing day;
Then i begin to wonder is this what they call adulthood?
The way my experiences and challenges change me and my orientation;
Is it just me being too sensitive or too deep?
Or am i actually growing too fast?
It's quite amazing how things change
The world that was once viewed with such innocence and naiveness;
We hardly noticed its darkness, we only saw the light;
But now we see the world for what it truly is; a perfect blend of mixed emotions
Joys and sorrows, good and evil, abundance and lack, happiness and depression;
Then i wonder, is it we that have lost our touch of innocence or the innocence we once felt quite unconsciously was just a mere mirage or a placeholder meant for the early stage of life and fades away as time passes by?
Then the struggle goes on and on;
Trying to do things right, trying to make things perfect;
Trying to live up to the standard you have set for yourself,
Trying not to let this world define who you should be;
Trying to defeat the monster within which is the hardest of all;
Trying to maintain your sanity in this insane world;
Trying to keep yourself together even when things around you are falling apart;
Trying to get over disappointments and heartbreaks from loved ones;
Trying to put a smile on your face when what u really want to do is burst out in tears;
And the list goes on and on...
The struggle never ends, No! It doesn't.
The only moment it does is when you are lying without a pulse in your grave;
But so long as the heart is still pumping in blood and that blood is still flowing through your veins and you are breathing and living;
The struggle continues!
I guess the struggle is all just part of the life package;
You part with it and you part with life!
No one that walked through the streets of this earth had it easy;
We all have an ugly thing in our past that we are trying to put behind, a monster in our present we are still battling with and the uncertainty of the future, the fear of the unknown;
But in the midst of all these, life goes on;
Ain't nobody gonna pause the time for you to sort out your issues first;
Tick tick says the clock!
Your age is moving on whether you move with it or not;
So you just have to get your act together and live in the moment;
Don't sulk about the past because it's gone and never coming back;
Don't tremble at the future because what will be will be;
Live for now cuz that's all you've got, this moment, now, today!!!
Am gonna be honest, sometimes the future scares the living daylight out of me;
But the feeling never lasts because i stay positive;
I say to myself:" I'm going to be great!" and that's it;
Be a survivor not a victim!
Yeah sometimes it gets really tough, too tough some may say;
But you can't because of that stop trying;
You have to keep doing the best you can at each given moment;
If you make a mistake, we all make mistakes, move on!
Don't beat yourself up so much so that you don't see the brand new opportunity standing in front of you;
You can only do your best and hope for the best;
Keep believing also in Him who made you;
Yeah i may have lost my innocence in that i no longer view the world the way i used to as a child but i have definitely not lost touch with humanity;
My existence brings about hope and my hope gives me the courage to move on and moving on has brought me to where I am today and where i am today is definitely going to lead me to where i will be tomorrow;
But of what use would a road map be if you have no destination at all?
Give yourself a sense of direction today and leave God to do the navigation!
