I saw you today
I wanted to call you
But I was afraid
I was afraid that you would ignore me
I was afraid that you wouldn’t recognise me
So I walked away
And tried not to look back
To look back at what I was leaving behind
To look back at all the possibilities
To the happiness that I was giving up
I know I will always carry you with me
I know that tomorrow I will wake up reaching out for you
And I will remember
That I left you on that sidewalk
Because I was afraid
I was afraid that you might break my heart
So, i walked away once again
We were too late
So please do like me
And Just walk away
Because our hearts could not endure the pain
It’s better that we both walk away and never look back

When do we realize it’s too late to walk away?
When the heart aches
And the air in your lungs become limited
When your sleeps are cut short
And your dreams fretful
When you chew food that tastes like marble
And walk without seeing where you’re going
When do we realize there is no chance of walking away?
When the alarm rings and the sun sets
When you walk but never reach your destination
When the tears that roll down your face
And the light inside you burns out
When the faces of the people you see are no longer familiar
And the bed you sleep in is too lonesome
When do we realize every action we take is pointless?
When we pick up the phone but can’t dial a number
When we meet and there are no words to be said
When we wake up and realize darkness still surrounds us
When the pain inside you can no longer be held in
And the air you breathe in slices through you
Like the wind of a winter morning
When do we realize it’s time to let go?
And keep walking
Even if the destination is unknown
And the journey is filled with uncertainty
When the clock keeps ticking
And you are left frozen in that moment.
Don’t let the fear of failure keep you from achieving greatness!
Most people tend to think that love is weakness; that the moment you decide to open yourself to someone, then we are vulnerable. And in truth, that is what happens. We become vulnerable, easily hurt and broken, but it doesn’t mean it’s weakness.
Love is what makes us strong, it is what makes us want to fight to become a better us, to make a change and a difference, maybe to our own lives or to someone else’s. Love is the reason any of us live to see another day, it gives us purpose.
You watch a movie and see this scene where a girl miraculously kisses a guy who was about to die but suddenly lives and you all think “aah, what a soppy scene, that’s not real”, but in truth, that one kiss is what gave him the will to fight for life, to fight for more time with the one person who gives them a purpose to live. They “miraculously” come back to life, not because it’s just a movie,but because he had found a reason to stay alive – the movie just wants you believe that love is strong enough to make a miracle happen, to give life.
Love is the strongest emotion. Those who are lucky enough to not fear it get to know just how strong it can make them. Love pushes us to the limits we never knew we could go, it makes us believers of Hope, it makes us Fighters. Those unfortunate enough to think it’s weakness, can never truly understand how much more they could be.
How can something that makes you want to fight, to live, to conquer, to be remembered, to be seen, be considered as weakness? How can something that gives you purpose in life, a reason to be and exist, be weakness? Fear is weakness, lack of hope is weakness, being unable to see past the smaller picture is weakness – but Love will never be weakness.
If you can love, with all your heart and your being, you will be the strongest person alive. Love without fear and no barriers, and you will know what real strength really feels like.
