Life is a long journey
People say life is short but it’s not
It definitely goes quickly
Which only when you look back
It’s still been long
It’s taken many years, doing what you’re doing
Many years to master your skills
Many years doing the same old thing
Talking to the same old people
The same friends and family
They tell you to get married, have children and fit in
But none of that will make you happy
Many marriages fail, children leave you behind
All you’re left is with yourself
So before you try to ‘fit in’
Try to be happy
Find your strengths
Reach for the stars
You don’t know what’s to come
Anything is possible
You only realise that as you grow
Be your own best friend
Live your own life
I’ve left the baggage
I’ve left the clouds
I see a new door open
It’s the door I want to take
But it’s not a road most taken
It’s a road for the few
But this road is my life
This is my passion, I’ve made my decision
This road less taken is the road I will travel
Things go well
Then there’s a cloud
Things are weak
The clouds get stronger
To get back to normal from the cloud, that’s the challenge
The up and down journey
To clear one’s head of the clouds!
There he stood with his glasses, waiting for the love of his life:
Excuse me, Sir?
Madam has just left and sent you this note
As he opened the note he was filled with emotions. What did she write? Where is she? Is she leaving him?
“Dear David, I have to go back to my father’s village, he needs me and he’s sick. He has no one to take care of him. He is all alone. I need to go. Please do not follow me. I do not know when I will see you again”
David was confused, surprised as it was all unexpected. What has just happened? He had no idea what to do. Leaving her would be what she wants, but it wouldn’t solve the problem. It wouldn’t bring back their love. But it’s a family crisis and he didn’t have her address. They had just dated for two weeks. But he knew he loved her. How could he go on with his life without thinking about her and her laughter? Her enthusiasm and kindness? It would be impossible
He went to the pub that night, he hoped to get some solace in the drink and he shut his head and started drinking. He didn’t think about anything. The bartender wanted to speak to him but he wouldn’t speak. He was baffled.
There was nothing he could do. He had to just get over her and move on.
Plenty of fish in the sea. But it’s never that easy is it?
Sometimes I feel like I’m in an imagination
As if life is too unreal to be true
Like my dreams will never come to fruition
That it’s all in my mind
But then I learn to breathe
I’m taking in too much
I need rest
There will be times when you question yourself
Everyone else seems to get the hang of life
Why am I so backward?
I see everyone moving ahead
I’m still stagnant
It’s too much to take in
Dreams always appear
The thought of doing something new
The chance to encounter a new horizon
For a new beginning
A challenge to take once we’ve reached the goals we set ourselves
To change the perceptions of many
To believe more in our own abilities
For a new future
One that will give us enormous joy
A sense of achievement that is beyond our imaginations
Oh! How it would be to achieve this dream!
Like a dream come true.
