The Light

I didn’t really care what happened to me

but, I had to follow my own path

like alchemy

I had to make myself laugh

like how can this be?

A gifted old soul as talented  as me,

with many seeds to plant

but no harvest reap.

I’ve been lost this maze that we call life.

How can we call this earth when hell sounds about right?

Hell seems more fitting.

Still weaved between seams

like knitting.

Found my way out of self doubt.

Accepted “the now” because that’s what it’s really about.

If your reality is similar to mine,

look deep within yourself and you find

that happiness was there whole time.

Find happiness in little things and we can both shine.

Light up your world as you light up mine.

Introduction To Life

I wake up to greet life everyday.

I extended a handshake and it took two steps away.

I admit, I’m a little rough around the edges.

but constantly getting smooth out by life’s blessings.

I know enough to know I don’t know it all

but things that were once subtle

I’m aware of them all.

I’m aware of my flaws

along with cause

of failed relationships.

Blatant hate and shit

For no other reason

other than jealously.

You see….

That was the jealous me

A heart full envy

With a mind telling me “they’re better than me”,

Not anymore.

My heart is no longer sore.

I am no longer fluent in the language hate.

I know now that things are not always supposed to be okay.

I’m no longer entitled

I no longer  have any rivals.

There’s no competition.

On the other side,

the grass may look greener but there’s nothing missing.

I learned to listen,

I learned to love.

I know there’s a plan for me even if there is no Godly thing or man above.

That’s why I greet life everyday

I extend a handshake and say

“Hi, I’m Tay”.
