The End

Is this it?
Is this the limit
I’ve never known?
The truth always reveals itself.

Some believe, some won’t.
What I believe counts, too.
I find, deep in my heart,,
this is the end.

Some agree, some won’t.
Someone has to care,
and that has to be me.
I say, this needs to end.

The ideal conditions
aren’t real anymore.
The world changed so much,
and it belongs to no one.

It all starts again
from scratch.
One door closes
and another opens.

Not Today

Oh my God,
I’m carrying the world
on my shoulders,
but I’m not ranting.

Not today.

Days will pass,
seasons will change,
and I might lose myself
once or twice.

But not today.

Someone will use their voice
to harm me
and make me quit.
I might.

Not today, though.

I haven’t panicked like this
in years.
Whatever happens will be alright.
This could be the last time.

But not today.

Honestly Not Okay

On a stormy night,
I seek comfort
and peace in silence.
I know I’m not okay.

On a regular day,
I look for myself
and find the worst of me.
I know it’s not okay.

On an average
day of winter,
I feel I haven’t aged well.
Who’s to say that’s okay?

On a different day,
I forget these things
and limit myself to exist.
I know it’s not okay.

Decade

Who are you
after all these years?
Have you found your place
in the life of your dreams?

No, you couldn’t be the same
even if you wanted to.
Time shows no mercy
when you look back.

It’s too late for regrets.
Don’t stare at the past for long.
You might be trapped forever.
Accept it’s gone.

No matter how wonderful you were,
the day of tomorrow awaits,
and it’s inevitable.
It’s a new decade.

For One Day

When I visited your life
for one day
I admired you.
Your world is beautiful.

Do you think so too?

Though I’ve never seen you before,
I became aware of you
and your daily life
just for one day.

Are you the person you’ve always wanted to be?

I regret not looking in your eye
to ask if you’re okay.
If you’re satisfied.
If there’s anything you’d change.

I trust the sincerity
of your smile.
I trust the authenticity
of your frown.

The Day is Today

The day is today.
No more delays,
no more countdown.
Your yesterday is gone.

Know you did it
with your bare hands.
On sleepless nights
when no one was watching.

Or saying a prayer.

The day is today.
You sail away
to distance yourself
from all you’ve ever known.

Questions will remain the same.
You won’t believe it.
You’ll find yourself
when you get lost.

Have you realized
you’re most alive
in times of struggle?
It’s your merit.

Today is the day
you are at your best.
You can go anywhere
and be yourself.
