There are two great days in a person’s life. The day they are born & the day they discover why. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you. I think I’m done trying to make things come to me If they’re supposed to, they will and it be what it will be I realize I can’t force things. I’ve hurt myself more dedicating myself to things and people that aren’t, nor ever will be mine So I no longer give it the energy, there loss not mine And it’s not that I just give up because I’m feeling weak I feel strong as ever but this is acceptance, not defeat. So today I forgive you and I let you go Cause wishing and hoping will never make it so And I do it with a smile and a type of joy that’s set me free For I found someone else, better to love and feel in love with… me And falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible And that puts me at peace and make me more loveable When before I was untouchable On the brink of becoming combustible Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living All the things I’ve been holding on to that I should have been giving So I cleaned out this box where letters were stored in So I can make new memories and have a place to put them in And I move forward before it’s too late Cause I’m a hell of a man, and great to date And today I’m smiling because the possibilities are endless And I feel the love of my friends when I thought I was friendless So I depend-less On others and more on myself But with the help and support of God, friends and no one else So never be afraid to try something new remember, amateurs built the ark Professionals built the Titanic while babies are made sometimes in the dark So I forgive you because there is more to life And God removed you to make room for a better wife… Sometimes, we’re too into the moment to look at the big picture. We fail to see things in perspective because we’re too absorbed in what’s taking place at that very instance. The thing is we should face reality. Find ourselves from being lost in the moment and think about everything the way it is. Because sometimes being realistic can save us from pain and disappointment.
