I was lost in these alleys
of the worldly matters,
of people and their behavior,
wanting to make it better,
wanting to make a difference,
when all i ever wanted
was to be in Love..
and then a beautiful piece of music
knocks on my head,
bringing me to my senses..
The way i was living these days
wasn’t how i wanted to live Life..
I wanted to live each moment,
And yet, here i was hiding in alleys,
not wanting to face the world..
Why was there this need, this want
to make the world around me a little better?
What if i let go
and lived as it was?
Was that going to shackle me, or set me free?
Instead of trying to make the world a better place,
i could keep searching for the beauty it already harbors,
like the beautiful piece of music
or a plant shining its leaves in the sun..
Coz what’s the point of making the world a better place
if it makes my own heart bitter and hard?
I absolutely cannot live like that..
Hearts are meant to be soft, fluttery and free..
Let them be..
