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

 

 

Broken

Her heart feels like it hasn’t been whole

 

A piece of her went missing some time ago

 

Things that once brought her joy don’t matter much now

 

She’s rarely happy; on her face she wears a permanent frown

 

Maintaining relationships has become somewhat of a chore

 

She enjoys her solitude, but her friends think she’s a bore

 

Getting out of bed most days seems like an impossible task

 

Unwilling to face the world, she puts on a cheerful mask

 

She tries to cover her scars and hide her emotions

 

Not wanting to show how badly she is broken
