Nothing’s to blame

You can’t always blame someone for the things that happen.
Sometimes, the greatest catastrophes are a result of the misfortunate union of a bad time with the wrong place.
But you can’t blame someone for the luck they are distributed, good or bad. Nobody would intentionally want anything bad to happen to them so it’s silly to think that they’d be at fault for it.

We never leave out house expecting of being stabbed while walking alone on the street in broad daylight or kidnapped while standing outside a coffees shop, if we lived trying to prophesize all our misfortunes we’d all be paranoid schizophrenics.
Which is why, we all start our day with a layout of the positive version of how we would like to spend it.

This doesn’t make us stupid, ignorant, naive or worthy of being blamed for an unforeseen attack, it just makes us human.

You can’t expect to live safely without being extra careful; the worlds too rotten a place.
You can’t expect to live blissfully while being extra careful; the world is too rotten a place.

Waves.

A wave so high that pulls you down so low
somewhere in between you lose your hope

You try and fight it but the rides too strong
the wrong feels right and the right seems wrong

It’s so intimidating; not knowing what comes next
each time it feels new even though you’re reading the same text

The force throws you up and then soon brings you crashing down
and among all the confusion you lose your sane crown

Everyday feels like a battle that nobody seems to understand
but you know it’s a force greater than you, something oh so grand

They can’t imagine what it’d feel like having these waves pull your strings
they can’t sympathize with what a life like this brings

But you know the number of tears you’ve shed can fill the deepest ocean
and how the times it’s tossed you up high has caused only commotion

How can anyone know what it feels like when you can’t control how you feel
to some it’s a joke, to some it’s no big deal

But it governs your life, it pins you down everyday
makes you grovel in the shadows and then shines bright lights in your way

So be strong and keep in touch, show it down once more
the waves will keep on coming and soon you’ll drift ashore.

The Unsaid..

You hide because you don’t want people to see
you lie because you don’t want people to know
but deep inside you secretly wish
they could all see what you don’t show

people are right when they tell you to keep your sorrow to yourself
that the worlds a shallow place filled with people who won’t care
they all pretend to understand, just for a while
but in the end, there’s nobody but yourself left standing there.

Hey You!

Hey you, come out and shout
It’s time to cry your dry eyes out

Let go of the fear of giving in
if you don’t give it all you’ll never win

run faster that the darkness that’s following you
beat it down, you know how to

Don’t be afraid of what they’ll say
they are nobody to judge your day

Nobody can see what keeps you going
nobody can measure the pain you’re not showing

Don’t look for sympathy, just help yourself
throw all the unwanted books from your shelf
shed all the skin that’s holding you back
it’s not your fault, cut yourself some slack

Accept that not everyone else will
but the ones that love till stop at no hill

The road ahead runs longer that you can see
but learn to leave some things up to destiny

Give up the craving for control and go with the flow
the suffering you’ve been through, only you can know

So fill your world with colors so bright
find strength that will keep you from the darkness of the night

You’re perfect in your skin that’s been gifted to you from above.
‘Cuz you are who you are, and that’s who they’ll love.

Confessions

I push myself for you
to keep you happy, to see that smile on your face
you don’t seem to ever appreciate it
you probably can’t imagine how tough it is for me
to put my emotions behind your needs
you push me into a corner till I have to lie
just to get some space for my emotions
but then that fills me with guilt
which makes me feel worse
so then it’s like either I suffocate myself for you
or then I drown myself with guilt just so I can breathe
I’m so lost.
I’m so tired.
I’m so done.
But I can’t live without you.
Because in the most literal way,
I’m living for you.
So either I suffocate myself for you
or then I drown myself with guilt just so I can breathe.
