This Here Life

Standard

“This Here Life”

This here life,

It’s full of dreams.

This here life,

It’s full of plans.

Both crazy and big,

That some can’t understand.

On a daily basis,

My mind wanders off.

And I just imagine,

What I can achieve.

Where I can be,

If I only believe in me.

Setbacks and obstacles,

They can’t hold me down,

Not for long,

For my resilience shines through.

Bright and indestructible,

Even during times most blue.

Used to not ever see,

The purpose of my existence.

But now, however,

I do realize.

A certain little gift,

One I can’t deny.

Time is so limited,

As well as precious.

Determined to reach,

High for the sky.

To get the most,

Out of this here life.

I Should’ve

I know what I like,

I know what I want.

It was you.

But still I pushed away,

The regret and wonder haunts.

I should’ve unveiled my feelings,

Taken a chance.

Let you in when you tried,

Buried my pride.

I should’ve showed you the sweet affection,

Gave you the time, the attention.

The way you did for me.

Sadly my eyes were blinded and couldn’t see.

I should’ve been giving you my energy,

Instead of putting it in someone else.

A direction I thought was worth it,

But brought more tears than smiles upon myself.

Now it appears the opportunity has faded,

Gone.

Wishing there was a button to rewind,

To prevent you from moving on.

Disappointed,

That it took me this long to realize.

At the same time,

Remaining strong as I say goodbye.

Whoever you end up with,

She’ll be one lucky person.

You’re a catch,

I’m very much certain.

I should’ve.

Keep Your Head Up

Standard

This is a very honest and personal poem I wrote just out of the blue. As I was near the end of writing it, I liked it so much that I wanted it to be my very first blog post. To those who are here, taking the time to read this, thank you so much. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment!

“Keep Your Head Up”

Sometimes I find myself wondering why I am here,

On this Earth.

At a standstill, just wishing for things to be better,

While also realizing, it could always be much worse.

Days I want to and do walk around unhappy,

With everyone and everything in my path.

As if it is the most ideal solution I can grasp;

Temporarily blinded of reasons why I should feel lucky.

I attempt to mold my soul,

To be empty, like a desert.

Dark, like a deep hole.

Acting as if I’m too invincible to feel hurt.

But I am a human being,

Who, in reality, has a very soft heart;

That at times can do a little too much caring.

No matter how hard I try, it refuses to stop.

God has His own plans for everyone,

Things happen when they do for a reason.

When life starts getting heavy and tough,

I just gotta tell myself, “Keep your head up.”
