The Day We Realize Life

Everything is so beautiful
When everything is automatic
But when you stop to think of details
You begin discovering their flaws
Hand picking things that will poison your heart
Giving reasons to corrupt all of the pure love
Feeling empty, all the struggle, a mistake of the past
Thinking we have live all our lives just like that
All of the damage someone else has caused us
We pass it on the next person who’s trying to love us
Causing the waves to grow big enough to drown
Whatever real intention there was to overcome
And now left stranded with that idea of our own
We suggest the next victim they should learn to become mind readers
A test that if they fail in the first few tries
Well, we’ll be waving goodbye to their sailing lives
Turn around the tables, turn around the cards
All that we are feeling inside is somebody else’s harm
You didn’t do this to me, as I didn’t do this to you
We are just beginning to learn from each other
And if we make mistakes along the way we shouldn’t feel like we don’t have any worth
Cause life is trial and error
Whatever we like it or not
And I do believe forgiveness is beautiful
Is the glue that keeps us together
Just like love does
Sometimes all I wish from people is a simple smile
Sometimes all I wish from you is a simple nod
A simple agreeing method
In order for me to relate
Not to sense a cold shoulder
Cause I didn’t understand the first time you explained
I don’t know where I am going with this
This here that I’m trying to say
All that I know is that I want to feel the peace
And the love that I’m trying to give you
The world won’t end if we change our patterns
The world won’t end if we scratch a line in our scripts
Sometimes we have to let go our working methods
In order to reach the person that is next to us
That is if that is what you want to do
That is if you are ready to sacrifice
To lower down your defense system
And open up enough to be fragile inside.

  1. Sometimes it is true, you have to give yourself to the other, not hold anything back; and just know it will come back. There are always mistakes to be made, timing that might not be respected; the point is not to see mistakes as something wrong; to abstract them and see themas bumps in a road to being where you are. We are blind when we tread on a new path, and really as humans we are fairly blind, stumbling around in the dark; kicking a few cans along the way is not a big deal. Remember sometimes too that situations can be seen before they are acceptable, and that wait can prove difficult, especially for those in love.

  2. How beautiful, and precious, Like a rose so frail and fragile.

    I love this poem, there is so much in it. Life is like that sometimes, when the past seems to seep into the present and we don’t know how we should act. We don’t want to constantly repeat our past mistakes but we don’t want to ignore them and just make the same mistakes over and over. Life really is beautiful and having someone who loves and appreciates you and allows you to work through it with them is truly a blessing. Sometimes it takes a complicated moment to bring us to an easier life, like that we lose the battle but we win the war saying. It’s all about growing and as long as we are doing that then we are still winning the war. ❤ ❤
