Taking Chances.


It’s hard to get over a betrayal, from family, friends or a loved one. It does affect you, no matter how much you try to hide it. But you learn to move past it, to shed that layer of pain, and let new people in.

You begin to give others a chance. A chance to prove that they won’t hurt you, yet you still won’t yourself care as much as you know you have cared in the past. But is it a bad thing to take a bit of precaution?

And then you see that they aren’t the people you thought they would be. They too have hearts, and if you give them a chance and not judge them, they will accept you as one of them, and take care of you.

Sometimes, you even see the side of them they don’t show in front of you. Good or bad.. And you learn to never judge the individual based on the company they keep. Not all birds of a feather, flock together.

The people who you thought were out of this world, begin to appear normal, with qualities you look for in a friend. You show a new-found respect for them, because even though you judged them, they never judged you.

Then you will wake up from your world, and join the real one, and know that though you are far away from the ones you know you are safe with, you can still have smiles and good times with the ones you don’t know yet.

So enjoy and keep smiling!!!

Just Once


Stop and take a look into my heart, see yourself there.
Even after all those long, distant, quiet years.

An old story written in my history, refusing to be buried.
Another chapter; maybe another day, maybe never.

My heart has been waiting for you.
But you don’t know it, I didn’t either.

We didn’t even have one moment, our moment, for me.
You couldn’t see what was so plain and clear.

I could have made you a star, helped you touch the sky.
Better that you are now, bigger than your body.

Your picture leaves me breathless, yet I’m still staring.
And I’m scared about what your words can do to me.

Let me see that smile smile for me, that heart beat for me.
Please, I want that twinkle back in your eyes.

I don’t want your life, I just want a moment, just one.
For that I will wait for you, for our time.

Strength To Smile

Dear friend, how can I explain…?
I see the pain in your eyes,
but I’m glad you have your better days
when the light shines brighter than usual.
I know you are thinking of her,
of her eyes, of the things that make your heart warm
in every breath that you take.
I hear the silent plea that your soul makes
for it all to be the same as it was,
to turn back time and rewrite history.
I understand how hard it is to smile,
when all you feel is emptiness, but smile anyways.
The pain shall fade with it.
Don’t give up hope,
take the extended hand, shoulder, ear
and don’t let go until you feel stronger.
Trust. Dream. Live.
The world is indeed a beautiful place.
Beauty comes in the roses, along with the thorns,
in the small miracles that come by everyday.
We are knocking on closed doors,
open them and let us in,
to help you find the strength to smile..
