savor it

Sit down and let yourself feel every feeling rushing through your heart,
don't try to push it away with words or music or some activity to disconnect,
let yourself savor the pain, the hurt, 
make a melody in your mind, 
how your feelings would sound,
play the song inside as long as you need to,
it's not about trying to change it or rush to another happier feeling, 
it's about accepting and realizing it's okay to let go, 
if not today, 
some day soon.

to the population

Sorry for being difficult and taking to heart every single word.

nostalgic heart

The soft rain and the grey days never helped a nostalgic heart.

feel happy

You woke up today,
in a bed, 
under a roof,
you had food to eat,
went to a job you like,
with lovely people,
you sang,
smiled and hugged your loved ones.

Feel happy 'cause you're so incredibly lucky.

the rollercoaster

It's very much a rollercoaster, ups and downs, stomach flips, nausea, fear and hoping to get through. It'll come to a full stop, in the meantime hold on and remember you chose to ride.

the old man

He reminded me of my grandfather, his eyes full of stories, so willing to share, I just wanted to listen even if I didn't understand or knew anyone he talked about.

the emotional minefield

The city was an emotional minefield, bombs everywhere, waiting to explode, blow me up into a billion pieces. So I stayed in neutral lands as much as possible. Someday they'll be new memories in those sentimental war zones and maybe they'll become safe again.

you tried

So you try with all you've got
but sometimes it's not even close to enough,
and it's okay to take a step back,
it's alright to notice.

the roads

Too late in life we learn, the good or the bad way, that some roads are meant to be walked alone.
