Wishful Thinking

3 Aug

When late at night
I lie awake, unable to sleep
I find myself debate
Whether to read a book
Or be content in my nook
Stare at the ceiling
Or my window railing
Daydream about when i’m sailing
Looking over the sea
At peace, unafraid, calm as i can be
Or plan an escape of what’s to be
When i can finally be free
Free from the burdens i put myself
From the unbinding “responsibilities”,
Unworthy “fears”,
I led myself believe.

Oh how the world had fooled me,
How clever humans can be.
If only i could unlearn the things that don’t matter,
Be raised with all the means
To search for answers
Or maybe to simply quench my thirst
Of knowledge, of wisdom,
But mostly of love.

But, whatever.

I only want to roam the world
Carefree as i can be.

“Adventure”

27 Mar

Not everything in life will be handed to you exactly how you envisioned it. They came tarnished, revised or totally different.

You wanted a promotion, you get fired.
You pray for your ideal man, you get a “usual” guy.
You hoped for a “yes”, you get a “no”.
You wish she acknowledges you, you are ignored.
It goes on…

But, hey.

Since people are occasionally in seek of a challenge or a thrill, you should accept this. Make the most out of it. The hard path is more likely your thing if this is the case.

But… No.

It would be hard because challenges or thrills or adventures are taken as travels of one place to another,
Or taken as exotic experiences may it be food or life threatening activities.

You see,

Adventures would be seen in a lighter and fulfilling way
If they are taken as journeys
from revolt to acceptance
Or from chaos to peace
Or from hatred to love.

These are more worthy of a risk.
These are more remembered by others.
These would likely be your salvation.
This is living.

So,

Let’s take the real challenges, my friends. And “the” adventure of a lifetime.
