Up, watching you sleep
You’re here, I’m home
I’ve yearned to feel
the warmth of your skin
The sun, rising and
Creeping through the glass
Your skin, golden and brown
A kiss on your forehead and
You hold me closer
You’re here, You’re home
I have waited
I have prayed
I have searched within the wrong people hoping to find
I have you
I have your love
I have your tender affection
I have your unwavering support
I have a hard time coming to terms with the reality of you
I have everything I’ve always wanted and,
I have a smile I thought I would never find
Because, you, my darling, are everything I’ve always yearned for.
It’s really sad that people try to make others believe their dreams are unachievable or not up to par. I think we should all be allowed to dream and tread our own path. The fact that someone’s passion isn’t good enough for you or society doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for them. Allow people be themselves, don’t try to box them in and turn them into conformists.
When you constantly bring someone down for what they believe in, you’re just setting them up for unhappiness and failure in the long run. Why should you be happy living your dream while you steal the freedom to dream from another?
We’re all different and so are our goals. We all need to come to terms with that. The end goal doesn’t always have to be monetary. Happiness trumps that any day.
Over the years, I’ve gathered that females have the tendency to hold on a little longer than the male gender. I’ve never understood why because I value my happiness too much to put it on the line for someone that wouldn’t do the same for me. I tend to remove myself from situations that make me unhappy because I’ve learned very quickly that life’s too short and you should take advantage of the little time you have. People let their insecurities force them into remaining in a loveless relationship. This shouldn’t be the case but sadly, it is most of the time. Some females aren’t confident in who they are, they’re never really sure of their ability to have a fresh start. Yes, you can do better. You can start all over. Don’t let the idea of being alone frighten you. Half the time, you need that alone time. You might have lost yourself trying to love another, you might have let someone else define you. You need to be alone to figure out who you are and what really makes you happy. Sometimes, we forget because someone has caused us so much pain and we’ve become accustomed to the lovelessness in a relationship. You can’t be the only one loving, you can’t be the only one fighting for a future. Someone once said to me “You can’t keep a man that doesn’t want to be kept”. You can convince yourself endlessly that he’ll come around but it won’t happen if he doesn’t want to. Break out of the loveless bond, find yourself again and definitely, the kind of love you deserve will come knocking.
