Follow the destiny

The weapons were glinting

In the rain, at night

As they came marching on

Without stopping for breath

And the chant was given

And I observed that time

While wishing and wondering

If I’ll ever be free from that

If I’ll ever just be myself

Not someone’s daughter

Honor means nothing

In front of freedom

sunrise

i spent so long in the dark

and now that i am out again

the sun blinds my skin

and i wonder how can i

gather all these pieces

how do i fix

all this mess i’ve left behind

but the blue screams so loudly

inside my heart

screeching “you have to rise”

and it’s overwhelming

and the sun burns my eyes

and my strength has left me

oh brightness

how you hurt me

but

please don’t leave me

Let it go

You didn’t realize
That things were piling up.
You didn’t see it coming,
The heartbreak,
The dark clouds looming
In the sky.

Now there are tears in your eyes
A weight on your shoulders
You can’t see the light
In the end of the story
You’re so afraid to fall

The old plan isn’t gonna work here…
So make a new one

Take this dead weight from you
And let it all go away
Let the wind take everything
That ever dragged you down

I know how it feels
My whole life I felt
Like I had to feel
A certain way

My whole life I carried this weight in me
My soul was chained

Now I let it all go
It was never for me to carry
It was never my fault
I have to let it go

Take these old wings of yours
And take flight
Don’t worry
Good things are coming
Just be free

Let yourself be taken by the wind…

Law

Standing in these corridors,
I take a deep breath
Feeling every thought on my skin…
And I realize you are all here
Surrounding me
I am never alone in these halls
Red spilled and swallowed right back
And spit out of a mouth which
Never knows how to give a proper answer.

Just be

You know what?
I’m tired of
All the motivation signs
On the wall.
Hey, guess what!
It’s okay to want to feel
Happiness.
But I’m going to tell you
Something new:
We can’t
Feel happy
All the f***ing time.

I’m tired.
So what?
I’ve had a tough week.
I can lay back a little
And relax
And just not think.
It’s okay if we can’t
Be productive
Every single moment
Of our lives.
Because even God
Rested on the
Seventh day,
Right?

I’m feeling a little sad.
So what?
I’ve had a couple
Of rough days before.
Feelings should just
Be validated
Instead of ripped off of you
And left hanging
On the wall.
Live through your sadness.
Don’t be so hard
On yourself.
You’re only
Human.

We are allowed to feel
However the f***
We want (need) to feel.
It’s okay to miss the rhyme sometimes.
Those motivation signs,
One day, they’ll come in handy.
But for now, let’s have a hug
And just let ourselves be.

You can

I can see your tired eyes
I can see your defeated demeanor
But I can see you are ready to try
To fight again with even more strength

And I know you are focused
Walking on your own two feet
But just know my hand is in yours
Know I am watching over you
Know my steps are connected to yours
Know my eyes are facing the same direction
Know I am here, a constant presence
And I will never leave you.

Daydream

I’m looking through the bus’ window

The traffic is frozen in time

I’m lost in thought while the people around me

Converse with one another

I’m listening to the sounds of my soul

The notes of my heart drum in my ears

Everything I am

Is still unknown to myself

I’m diving in trying to find any kind of light

I want to dress myself up in stars

And travel through the galaxies

Touching the sparkles

And they won’t burn me.
