If it Were True

If it were true, it would conquer death much more if it were just a fight.

If it were true, no matter how many times it hurts, you just heal from it.

If it were true, no matter the distance, you make not even a glance to anyone else.

If it were true, nothing will break you, it will only make you stronger.

If it were true, you would fight, throwing in the towel will never be an option.

If it were true, no matter how many times you try to leave, you always come back.

If it were true, no matter how much you try to forget, you just never could.

If it were true, no mountain is ever too high for you to climb.

If it were true, nothing is impossible to do.

If it were true, you could never breathe the same.

If it were true, you close your eyes but each slumber deems restless.

If it were true, there is no time limit to what you can do.

If it were true, you epitomize all those love songs.

If it were true, you would put to shame those romantic movies and shows.

If it were true no romance novelist could have conceived the moments you have encapsulated into tiny moving photographs.

If it were true you would never choose to walk away, for you know you can’t.

All of those who have loved know this, if it were true.

It’s Just One of Those

Mornings that as soon as you open your eyes everything already seemed wrong

The kind that you know every hour is going to feel long

Those mornings that your mind says get up

The ones that you just want to lay there and want the time to stop

Days that you can’t wait to end

You put on the brightest smile just to blend

Nothing feels right

But you’re trying with all your might

Finally dusk, the day is almost over

When every single part of you feels weaker as the night gets closer

You feel proud to have done what you should

But even that didn’t change your mood

Those nights you get ready for bed

Then you lay there with thoughts in your head

You try to pray, you want to pray but only tears are coming out

Even though you want to shout

You let it all out, tears are prayers too, people say

You’re happy with your life but sometimes you are just not okay

Everything including this, too shall pass, I suppose

But you’re not okay, not tonight, because it’s just one of those

Fast Forward to…

All of a sudden it all makes sense

From a storm that seemed so intense

The moment has come that the dust settles

For a time that seemed too little

You’ve survived, you’re okay

When you spent such a long time looking away

Finally all is said and done

A new dawn has begun

You see it now

All the whys and hows

It all worked out for the best

Like you hoped for, like you dreamed of as the outcome of your test

It is everything you’ve ever hoped for and more

You feel as if you’re done opening doors

Because that one door is staying open

Your favourite place that listens

No more questions everything is clear

You got the words you’ve been meaning to hear

Nobody else could take that smile away

For you’re looking at the one who draws it until the end of your days
