Before I indulge, I love to feel good by postponing and anticipating 🙂
You stood so tall and so proud I could not see through you
You hid behind your charms and lies and made me think I could not read you
But I finally understand what it takes to be you I admire you for being you for so long
Come to think of it, I do not think you have any other side to you
You now stand representing boredom and all that I know
Hey that spark is still in your eyes – oh yes, it is still there!
But it does not ignite a flame in me anymore
You stand in the way but now I can see so many ways around you
You still stand tall and proud
But now I see right through you
Your charms and your lies are now my cards in the game also
It is so now so easy to get in your head and play your very games
So consider my next words carefully…
Before that spark in your eyes fade
And what is left of the dying embers in my heart die out…
I dare you to move!
It’s not what happens to us, but our response to what happens to us that hurts us. Of course, things can hurt us physically or economically and cause sorrow. But our character, our basic identity, does not have to be hurt at all. In fact, our most difficult experiences become the crucibles that forge our character and develop the internal powers, the freedom to handle difficult circumstances in the future and to inspire others to do so as well.
