Once Upon a Time, I Lived Happily Ever After

As a kid,
I believed in fairytales.
In Once Upon a Times
and Happily Ever Afters.

But after I got my knees bruised
And overcome puberty blues
I learned you can’t make good poetry
Without getting your heart abused.

(LOL! Bad poetry. Bad poetry. No wait, this isn’t even poetry. Just finish it, so you can shut it up. 😂😂😂)

But then I grew up,
So it’s Once upon a time,
I handed my heart over
To several wrong people
And that is okay
Because Once upon a time
I learned, I loved, I gave it my all
I fall, I failed, I was on my knees
But it wasn’t the end I know
I cried, I prayed, I still believed
That magic happens, unexpectedly
I got up, I continued despite,
I smiled, I tried
And licked my wounds in silence
I made a note to self
That if Once upon a time,
Handing your heart over
Doesn’t make feel like a princess
That is okay
He may not be your prince yet
And it matters less if he ever come along or find you first or find you at all
Because it is when you know your worth and love yourself first,
That you’d live happily ever after.

Window Pane

Dear, let me tell you..

That life is gonna knock you down real hard. Doors will be shut in your face and it’s gonna hurt you more than it should. You will keep banging that door. Until you realize it will lead you nowhere anymore. And then you’ll turned around, eventually your eyes will ran out of tears and that’s when you can see thru the window. It is definitely more than just a window pane. You’ll see life is beautiful even when shit happens. And that.. There is more to life than closed doors.

Not Okay

There are times when we just want to keep our emotions to ourselves. Times when sharing doesnt seem to help and it feels like no one really understands. There are also those when we just want to feel okay, act like everything is in place when in reality we feel like our world is shattered. I definitely have experienced all these and how easy it is to pretend nothing is wrong when no one knows what you are going through.

I would just like to remind you, it is okay not to be okay. We all have our ups and downs. Sure there are people who would listen to you if you need to ligthen up the load. Moreover, there are also those who would like to keep you happy and help you be distracted so you don’t get to worry too much. You are not alone dearie. So cheer up strong soul!
