POETRY: Define your future

If you have never watched the stars up in the heavens wondered at the reflection of the shining stars never noticed a polar of others unwelcome vim You’ll never see the light within that glows you will never look at what you are.

If you have never watched the stars up in the heavens

wondered at the reflection of the shining stars

never noticed a polar of others unwelcome vim

You’ll never see the light within that glows

you will never look at what you are.

 

Many look into their sad lives

Making bargains with a super power.

their music rotating around the lamenting starlight

Believing all the tales people say about them

and miss the blooming of their flowers

 

Don’t live your life so blindly

And follow others like sheep follow their Shepard

there is a person in you

who is prevented from blossoming

 

I was never a believer

but fate swept my feet to belief

now i know that no one knows you better than you

and no one loves you better that you do

that I will believe until I die

 

I believe none crosses the lake

without being swept by a wave

none will skip a step in their growth

and none has it all figured out

it comes with failing and trying again

feeling discouraged and regaining strength

 

Every moment and minute

has Channel routs and hails

but can only be a total disaster to a blind soul

the flowers bloom every morning

a sign of a new beautiful day

and you alone can make it a better day

when you accelerate each moment that is given to you

 

While you walk through forests of shadow

as you watch all the leaves become

still life,

look closely at the top of the trees

there are always birds in the nests

singing a joyful song

their lives are never put to a stand point

because their shelters are jeopardised

since thats just drought and it only lasts for a season

 

Choose to look at the essence that’s within you

And live within the moment; that is all

don’t believe what they say

them too don’t have a perfect life

listen to the the whisper in you as it calls

And live for everything that’s beautiful
