Pain & Happiness

(Edited & re-posted)

 

In order to see clearly you have to lose it all

 

In order to succeed you first have to fall

 

To feel love you must feel sadness and sorrow

 

To let go of the past is to live for today and tomorrow

 

For a heart to mend it first had to break

 

Then you can begin to fix every last mistake

 

To know happiness you must first feel pain

 

Most times these two come together; they can be one in the same

Secret Crush

Her eyes were bright like embers

 

The color of fallen autumn leave

 

She’s certainly the prettiest girl I’ve seen

 

Her legs moved gracefully, her skin so smooth

 

The orange leaves sway with her every move

 

She has hair so kinky and marvelous

 

And a spirit so free and adventurous

 

Floating away from me

 

Just like the beautiful autumn leaves
