Long term, durable satisfaction.
That is what we must strive for.
On the way to succes there are many distractions. The promise of
quick happiness tugs strongly at our core.
It has always been like this.
Most of us manage to find focus, but only the strong are able to keep it.
Once found, it is the key to open all doors.
Imagine giving all your energy to the thing you want most.
What did you think of?
My first thought was something trivial because I’m bored.
Completely irrelevant in the grand scheme.
But right now I want it the most.
It’s when we focus on the big wants, the wants that are always at
the back of our minds, that we have seen in front of us many times
after we have closed our eyes, only then we will be truly satisfied.
The little wants will follow.
Keep focus, little one.
Who am I, you ask?
I am your experience of me
However which way we would want it to be,
our image has its own life in the eyes of who sees
Some parts of me may not fit your logic
you will give them a place
where they resonate
However hard I try,
there are some things I cannot change;
I am who I am, yet I am how you see me
I can only be me
Eyes accept truth when they see it
That is why I choose to live life
with as guidance some rules i abide by:
and most of all,
Who are you?
Even with obstacles
If it isn’t water
then let it go.
I’m thankful for the little pieces
We always want more
The first bite makes the hunger grow
and at the same time it satisfies our core
The first glimpse piques our curiosity
yet immediately opens or shuts the door
They say that poison comes in small bottles
We know what we want when we get it
We know, we want more
Trying to forget you like a song in my head
searching for noises to replace it
Putting up my hand to block the sunlight
wishing it was night instead
That’s how it felt.
Then i saw you again
And it was bright all over
her soul was so great she traveled forth in small pieces
leaving me to interact with all her new forms in sudden glimpses
the one i knew before my lungs drew air
i’ve met shadows of what she’s supposed to be
products of knowing what to make but forgetting the recipe
remove that and all that is left is me
right here looking at what’s next to see
I have everything i need
Even when i think i don’t
All of a sudden, when my ideas breathe
It just comes to me, i already have a lead
I’m prepared for everything that comes
Because since it’s for me, i always have been
There’s no chase
My tale is already complete
If I could give her shoulders a rest
If I could carry her on my back
I know I can conjure a smile on her face
I know I can make her feel worth in her place
But I want to give more
Give everything back
And double that
How do you repay life?
I do it by living
Making sure to carry forth
every good example
every heart lesson
Every compliment I get I say my mother taught me well
Because you did.
You deserve a compliment as well
To the one that gave birth to my child
I want to thank you
On that day you gave birth twice
Not any single rhyme can express
That special place i have for you
I love you more than myself
Through bad and good
I still think you’re the best
Even though sometimes your patience i test
You’re the mother of my firstborn
Even though we are torn
My allegiance to you
is forever sworn
