Thrive in uniqueness

Thrive in Uniqueness

Would you agree, being exclusive and different,
Special and unique in your own beautiful ways,
With your own gifts, dreams, and preferences,
Is the right way for your soul to stray,

Away from being stereotyped and plain,
I feel we should embrace being rare,
And trying to better ourselves every day,
Love more and give more, if we dare,

I feel it is about being your own true self,
And about friendliness, love and positivity,
About becoming the best version of yourself,
Striving for progress and productivity,

Making decisions from your heart and soul,
Being the change you want to see in this world,
Pain and negativity, forget about it all,
And keeping your promises for what it’s worth,

Planting little seeds for a better future,
Making sure these seeds are lovingly watered,
Do it yourself, staying humble and pure,
And don’t rely on help from others,

You, just you, in your own unique ways,
Can go from zero to hundred if you want,
You just have to put in some effort and play,
It smart, as succes is really right in front…

I am so sorry love

I am so sorry love

I remember the day you pulled the knife from my heart,
From darkness you dragged me back into the light,
You stepped in my world when it was falling apart,
Ready to conquer, for me you would fight,

I am so sorry for letting go of your hand,
For leaving you so sudden, alone in the dark,
I dont know why and I can’t comprehend,
Why I had to destroy our house of cards,

Could it have been my surrounding dark skies?
The storms of life that were taking their toll?
I am so sorry for not hearing your cries,
And for not listening to the voice of my soul,

My beloved man, I have made a mistake,
I am so sorry for tearing your world apart,
There is not much I can do but break,
And expressing myself through this precious art,

Can you please forgive me for what I did to you?
For causing you so much sadness and pain?
I promise you sincerely, I was hurting too,
I just couldn’t handle that pouring rain…

Forgiveness is love

Forgiveness is love

In life you meet people who are positive and kind,
Beautiful souls, with a beautiful heart and mind,
They fill you with wisdom, hope, and love,
They appear to be a gift from the heavens above,

Others who cross your path may hurt you in ways,
They make you to experience some difficult days,
You may wonder why this is happening to you,
And wonder what it is you should do,

Sometimes when being hurt you get this itch,
To snap back at this person with a compulsive twitch,
You want to lash out, punch, scratch and bite,
You are agressive, angry and ready for a fight,

You show your teeth and you sharpen your blade,
To hurt the person who wronged you in a way,
Your emotions burn and your hands are shaking,
But it will only be your own heart you are breaking,

When you decide to hurt the one in front of you,
You will in a way be hurting yourself too,
Do you really want to act upon rage and hate?
If you do, this may unfortunately seal your own fate,

As acting upon the negative emotions,
Will satisfy you only for a few moments,
Afterwards you have blood on your hands,
And then you eventually come to understand,

That fighting fire with fire is ineffective,
So try to look at this from another perspective,
What about, forgiveness, mercy and understanding,
To achieve empathy, love and a happy ending..

For the both of you this will be a massive gain,
And I promise you, this will heal all of your pain,
You don’t want to feel anger, hate and aggression,
So let this little rhyme be a valuable lesson,

You yourself, you have hurt people too,
Intentionally or not, we actually all do,
Wouldn’t you want to be forgiven as well?
Or would you rather be sent to hell?

I am guessing that you wouldn’t right?
So please don’t use that sharpened knife,
Look into your heart and before you respond,
Try to see the pain of the person in front…
