My Happy Ending


You take my life,
Turn it over,
Cuts and wounds,
Not a bit of me sober.

In thorns adorned,
I walk the land,
Granite in my eyes,
Blood on my hands.

Step after step,
After every step I take,
I find you with me,
Every step of the way.

This deserted path,
This is our journey for life,
We’ll bleed tears,
Every word a knife.

But braver still, be us,
To still search for paradise,
As long as we’re together,
Love has no price.

You are my enemy,
But you are my friend too,
You are me, in another,
And that there, is my cue.

While you wonder,
About this story,
Our dreams will change,
Slowly but surely.

But stand by me,
As I stand by you,
In me, you’ll find,
Challenges new.

All of this and more,
Somewhere is waiting,
You and I and my dreams,
Together are my happy ending.

 

A Lil Bit Of Who I Am


Image

Pretty much a text book teen,
Cranky, complexed and hormonal,
I hated the world and it hated me back,
My life was almost zonal.

Grew into my grey life,
Did what i was told was right,
A tantrum here and here,
Once in a while, a violent fight.

Days became months,
Months became years,
Boredom and loneliness,
Became the sum of my fears.

Frantically I ran,
From pillar to post,
Sometimes was the guest,
Sometimes played the host.

I grew up, finally,
Became my own friend,
Forgot the trivialities,
Forgot the latest trend.

Fought for myself,
My biggest battle ever,
Tore my adversaries down,
None were too clever.

It took a while,
But my will was strong,
It took some patience,
To right the wrong.

Today I stand here,
With my head held high,
Ever so grateful to God,
His name in each sigh.

I thank him for the pain,
And thank him for the trials,
And thank for the roads i walked,
For miles and miles.

Blessed with true friends,
Blessed with my family,
My world is a song,
Of gumption and melancholy.

Struggle is my redemption,
For suffering I give a damn,
This is just a glimpse,
Just a lil bit of who I am.
