Life is so frail; I wish not to complain or concede to my failures
My journey started with an open heart and through all the roads travelled, I hope when it comes to the end, my heart will be open again
I have caused pain to others without intention; my soul knows I have no distain
I long for answers, of questions asked to a higher aspiration I gave my heart, lost my pride and trust, being hopeful yet accepting defeat where due
I confused friendship with dependence, many conjectures have been fulfilled, I question myself for traits that are blind to me, yet visible to the egotistical.
I find it hard to forgive, and being judgemental is a flaw I accept with due diligence. Many a memory made, and yet forgotten, dreams illuminating my night times have dulled in the light of day
I respect my elders, and with regret to which guidance I have at times closed my eyes; but as life continues, I will drink from the cup of knowledge and take heed of realisations that will fall at my feet.
