Damn, this sweltering heat.
Damn, these sweaty palms.
Damn, these sunny bright skies.
Damn, it’s too hot.
It’s too HOT!
Where is my life headed? She asks.
To the place you want it, he replied.
Where is that place? She asked again.
If you don’t know, who will? He said.
She was afraid of that answer, for she knew it to be true.
She sighed and shrugged as she continued to wander in hopeless wonder.
He saw this and he said, close your eyes,
Where you are now, is what matters.
Where you want to be, you will be in time.
What you wish to be, will be.
Just close your eyes.
Let loose, focus and live.
Need to lift off this blindfold
for I want to be there when the
see the chaos unfold
hear the truth untold
Whisper secrets in your ear
tell you to never fear
the kiss of death however near.
I’m very scared.
I didn’t know what else do, so I came here to tell you.
Everything scares me.
Life scares me.
The uncertainty of life scares me the most.
I know it’s natural,
Everyone has to face their fears,
face their fate
but I’m at a point in my life,
where the world is my oyster,
life can take any turn I want it to take,
yet I’m stuck;
or do I just feel trapped by my own expectations and high aspirations?
Is possible to know where you want to go but not know how to get there?
Where’d the days go?
When all we did was play
And the stress that we were under wasn’t stress at all
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall from
Walking by a high-rise to a landmark square
You see millions of people with millions of cares
And I struggle to the train to make my way home
I look at the people as they sit there alone
The world is coming down on me
and I feel my heavy heart is reaching out for you
As much as I say, “I’m over you,”
I guess it will be never be true.
I never thought that you’d be the one to hold my heart
but you came and my world shook with intensity
I never knew anyone could have over me.
I have spent years building these strong walls
Now I just hope you can see through them,
and take credit for its destruction.
I want to be what I could be, today,
not tomorrow or never.
I want to be what we could be, today.
not tomorrow or never
I want to take risks;
hold my actions responsible and
not leave it to fate or chance
to steer me in directions
that makes me berate.
I know, I need to know what I want,
but it’s so much easier to tell you what I don’t want.
I don’t want failure,
I want no heartbreak,
I want no pain
but most of all,
most of all I never ever want to say,
‘It might have been, had not this, or that, or this.’
I never want to live a life of regret.
I’ve fallen in love with Ayn Rand works over the summer.
