Some things

Some things short poem

There are so many things that happen,

Some things are too subtle

And some too apparent.

Some, however insignificant, bring immense joy

And some, no matter how big, make us cry

Small gestures

Simple words

And great pleasures

Silences that encompass us,

The closeness we share,

Some things like pain, we should not bear

Touch the green sore area

Drive away the hurt

Do you know me?

Do I know you?

Some things are not said, but felt.

Did you come to me first?

Whose was the thirst?

Come to me now

Stand by me now

Don’t ask how

Some things can happen any how

Don’t look back

Don’t look sad

Don’t curse the past,

Don’t cry over your broken heart,

some things are not meant to last…

Better Things short poem

There are nightmare dreams that haunt the sky From minds hard anchored to the earth And deadened thoughts from dead ones eyes Who’s living failed them at their birth. No Lovers touched by lovers thoughts Nor Eros arrows piercing hearts

The world is a race If you want to succeed, pick up your pace Keep running, focus, put in extra hours, fly solo But doesn’t this make you feel empty and hollow? Be yourself, be silly, be alive, spread joy
