Intentions

The thing about loving people who are close to us:Sometimes we’re not honest with our feelings, Because we can’t believe other people’s actions towards us. We live this perfect life, Completely in denial, Because we believe they would act better. We can’t believe they’re really after us to cause harm,Because we would never hurt them…

First Step

When you’re constantly disappointed,And things aren’t working out. You can choose to move forward,And leave everything behind. It may seem like a simple decision,To leave all the heartache behind.

Be Loyal

She wanted to be loyal to her heart,So she stopped holding back,And let her words flow. As the layers of denial started peeling away,She found there was a lot more going on,Than her words described.

Heartbreak

We can spend our entire lives trying to mend what’s broken. Or trying to figure out what went wrong but it’s no use. Heartbreak is complicated and there’s no right or wrong. As time goes by, our scars remind us of what we’ve been through. It triggers fear which is just like grief, it comes…

Float Away

Sometimes the memories hit hard,That she can barely breathe. Sometimes she wants to go back,To the way things were. Then she sees all the beautiful moments waiting ahead,And all the bad memories just float away.©ZeinaA.G

Control

We fight so hard to gain it,Fearing we would lose it any minute. We fight so hard to keep it,Unaware that when it slips out of our hands,We learn the power of letting go.©ZeinaA.G
