broken thread


Closure heals the soul

The torture of darkness paralyses
Floating, waiting, … suspended

A feast of thoughts,
Harvest of emotions,
A seed is sown

Silence shatters
the essence of communion

Happiness is sacrificed
in the altar of self-importance
singed, threadbare

Time is thrown to the wind

Break the thread
In a bid to raise the trophy
Prove what ultimately?

Relearning the ropes
A page is lost; shortened thread
Doubts mushroom

This pain is real

to live again

tunnel end

I can see the dark cloud
Hanging over you
I see also, a glimpse of sunshine
About to brighten your world

Look up, open up, and Stand tall,
Dare to look within
Let me help you
Let me show you
The beauty inside of you

Now, look, what do you see?
See as it is and not as you are
I see a beautiful soul
I see one capable of loving
And being loved
Yes, you are awesome

It’s not what happens to us
It’s how we choose to react

You can live again,
Banish the dark clouds
Let the sunshine in
There is so much to live for
Now, take a deep breathe

What do you see?
All the good you see are true
All the love you glimpse is real
All your dreams are possible
It is in you, do not fight it
Choose to live again

Look up, open up,
Do not give up
Leave the tracks, don’t spill it
You are precious, do not waste it,
You are beautiful,
You have got potentials
You are a blessing to the world
Impact it positively.
See… live today
Tomorrow will be better.
