I’ve come too far for you not to respect,
Pages left unturned; happiness passed up
because lessons never learned.
I go back to the same mistakes repeatedly, conceitedly
thinking I will succeed.
I come from a bloodline of
I will never give up on humanity no matter
what it throws at me I wear
with pride, it reminds me of what I have
to see them is what keeps me

Is a journey towards enlightenment , a journey of the spirit. Living Zen is the understanding that youcan experience emotion , feeling, or adversity-
Without letting it consume you.
take me to this place you say is breezeless
where the shadows stand still,
and the brightness is only at
the tips of our toes, and the darkness
smells like rainbows.
take me to this place you say the waves crinkle
and never splash
where you become ageless
never knowing how much time has passed.
take me to this place you say people fall in love
without saying a word.
where the sunshine is vibrantly heard.
take me to this place you and I will only know,
where mindfulness has no plateau.

A coil of pain,
A twirl of despair,
crossed and twisted
to bring immense pain.
After being worn for some time,
it starts to untangle,
revealing pieces of happiness,
drops of laughter,
intertwined with moments of love.
Snatch those threads
and put them up for later,
when they transpire
the sorrow glistens a bit.
Those are the days we need to remember.
