(I was brooding about something IRL when I wrote this earlier, so I apologize for the darkness of its tone.)
We seek acceptance from those,
we come across every day.
Hoping that we’ll bring them a smile,
as we go about our way.
Never truly knowing if we’ve made a difference,
within those paths we’ve crossed.
Forever wondering if we can call them friends.
Shrugging away those uncertainties, no matter the cost. Continue reading →
Live like there’s no tomorrow.
As if there’s nothing holding you back.
Encompass the world,
within the palm of your hand.
Lifting it up for others to see.
Let go of those regrets.
The ones that will hold you back.
Smile and be free. Continue reading →
It’s been said that friendship is forever. We meet people everywhere we go, drifting through life and befriending those that we come across. Most friendships forged are able to stand the test of time, while some are only meant to be fleeting.
Those that we consider friends are meant to be in your life. They’re the ones that stick by you no matter what happens – be it good or bad. They’ll argue with you when they don’t agree on whatever random topic you’re discussing and might walk away in a bit of a huff, but let’s face it – at the end of the day, you’re back to being friends and ready to tackle the next storm that comes your way.

These are the ones that achieve only the role of a passer-by, leaving a small imprint behind that you’ll think about randomly. These are the ones that were never meant to be. Continue reading →
Life is about choices. Everything we do determines the paths we take and the persons we become. Good or bad, we all learn from the choices that we make.
Most of us are content with the lives we lead, never giving thought to the what if’s or could be’s. Yet I bet that there’s a good many of us that wonder as to whether things could have been different. Hell, even those that never question the paths they’ve taken in life have probably wondered if they could have changed a certain aspect of their life and made things better.
I sometimes wonder what my life would have been like if I hadn’t listened to my Mom and taken the path that she’d chosen for me. Where would I have ended up? Would I have become the writer that I always wanted to be? Would my dreams of going to college back then have played themselves out? Would I have had the family that I’ve always wanted? You know, the single-family home, two beautiful children, and the freedom to do what I’ve always wanted to do and be who I was truly meant to be. Continue reading →
