Hi guys, happy new year!!! I know this post is late, sorry! I’ve had exams pretty much non stop, so I haven’t had a lot of time to write lately.
Usually, I would be writing a year-end poem, but this year, that didn’t really work out. 2016 has been a confusing year. So instead of one poem summarising the year that I used to write, here’s (the first segment of?) a new tradition:
THINGS I LEARNT IN 2016:
1. Love isn’t always larger than life.
Sometimes, it’s quiet,
A whisper that lasts for a second,
for a week.
Love is sometimes infatuation,
sometimes a thrill that lasts for just a while, and then
Love ends, but it
doesn’t make excuses, instead it
accepts the truth with
sad smile and
2. Being true to yourself feels
better than you ever thought it would, and
even when it pricks, and even
when it hurts, it’s
better than living in a cage, no matter
How beautiful it is.
3. There are some problems you
can’t solve, and it’ll
feel like a gaping wound in the fabric
of your life; you’ll wonder how
you went from feeling on top of the world, to
being smaller than you could’ve imagined,
but then you’ll realise you don’t have to
sit in a closet full of other people’s skeletons,
too scared to breathe;
instead you can watch as people you love finally
find the strength to cast away
the ashes of their own monsters.
4. Time flows like a river in flood,
rushing over everything in its
path, and just when you
find your footing, time will
pull the rug from under you,
and you’ll be left on your back, wondering
how you could’ve ever thought
the calm would’ve lasted.
