Poems, Thoughts

Reality on a thin thread

We’ve been told many times
not to fall prey to kindness
that is two-faced
but how could we stop ourselves
when we all yearn for kindness
at every nook and cranny of this world
I’m just happy at least
that our faith in humanity
is still hanging there
even if it’s on a thin thread

Poems, Thoughts

Telling myself over and over again

Oh please, it bites surely, when the little things you do
torment you and you ask yourself what the hell was I thinking?
but you can’t cry over spilled milk, can you?
as cliché as that sounds, listen up if you really want a piece of reality
shit happens
all the time
it’s up to you to decide to live with a clouded mind
or one that is free but controlled
are you feeling lost or disturbed?
well you’re torturing yourself
it’s a fact and don’t you dare ignore that
take care of your mind and consciousness
i’m tellin’ ya, it’s perhaps better
if you let it go
