Believe in your ideas

People are afraid to follow their dreams
Because of the uncertainty it brings
The cost of money, the cost of time
Weighing on all of their minds
But don’t we owe it to ourselves
to do something that makes us happy
instead of sitting day to day from our daily nine to fives.
Just open your eyes
and your heart will know that the choices you make
are all right.

Now Or Later, I’m In No Rush

We are beyond this space and time.
If only our lives could have aligned.
Like the stars in the sky.
Magical and divine.
Wondering if the past life us has ever gotten a chance to meet.
Or did we live life without passing each other a simple greet.
And if the afterlife us will ever have a glimmer of hope.
Because it’d be an utter shame,
if we never got a chance to be each other’s one.
Even if it’s only for a short period of time.
Undoubtedly realizing, we’d carve each other’s hearts with the words;
“you’re mine”

Mandatory Space

We’re forced to do as they please.
But to say the least.
I’m seriously aching.
Nearly breaking.
Maybe I’ve fallen too fast.
Like every time from my past.
I know we could have last.
I felt your heart.
It brushed against mine.
And I won’t forget the time.
Where our fingers were entwined.

That’s Life for You

I feel as if I’m cursed.
I’m always at my worst.
I’ve searched far and deep.
For the last couple of years and these past few weeks.
To have found someone,
That makes my heart beat.
But the situation is something we can’t keep.
And again I’m left here to weep.
Maybe in a different time.
A different world.
I can make you mine.
