Once Again

Once again, we’re here

Taking chances, taking risks

With no certainty to hold, not a clue

Not even a single glimpse of tomorrow

And not even an idea;

How do I stop thinking?

How do I know?

Am I doing it right?

Or does it just feel right?

~

Once again, I’m asking questions

Questions that can only be answered if I take a leap of faith;

And once again, it’s faith that’s yet to be tested,

And I don’t know.

I don’t know what to believe.

I don’t know how to believe.

I don’t know when to believe.

All I know is that once again, I’m inside this room,

A colorless room without corners.

~

Where do we go?

Do I have to take your hand, even though you’re unknown?

Do I have to run away and just leave you alone?

Do I have to go to your direction?

Do I have to make my own way?

Once, I was lost

But once again, I am found;

I just don’t want to lose myself once again,

Not anymore.

After Rain

~

Let me tell you something you’ve never heard before

Or maybe let me help you see things better, all the more

Let me write another story for this newly opened door

New places, new heights, new songs are all there

Smiles and sunshines and dances everywhere;

~

And as I look outside my window,

I know

I have seen another rainbow

Way more beautiful than all the rainbows I’ve ever seen before.

All the Roads

34 of #100HappyThings

Going South, going North,

Heading East, turning West,

If the past is all that’s worth,

Let’s put now into test.

~

Take the keys, take the wheels

And I’ll be on the passenger seat,

Forget the dues, forget the bills,

Today we only have the clock to beat.

~

Tear down the map, just burn them all,

Let’s figure things out along the way;

Bringing clothes for winter, summer, spring and fall

And a box of pizza to get us through the day.

~

Perhaps I’m gonna bring my copy of the Harry Potter movies,

While you’re going to have the Game of Thrones series, too;

Take a break from the chaos of the cities

And take a chance to the chaos of you.

~

Because whether we turn right or left,

Go straight or turn around,

I’ve had our watches kept:

Let’s leave in quiet sound.

And the Door Opened

Maybe it’s coincidence

Or perhaps it’s not,

This page of iridescence

Lights up and blinks a lot;

 

A new moon, a new star,

It shines in the night,

Once admired from afar,

Now a knob to hold tight;

 

Maybe they heard a knock,

And in silence, they listened,

A secret unlocked,

And then the door opened.
