That’s Life

You were so little when I nurtured you,And chased your demons away. I gave you my love and attention.I taught you everything I know so you could get by. We created a bond that I thought would last forever.A bond that wouldn’t change over time.A bond that I thought you cherished,That wouldn’t be broken from…

Go Where The Love Is

I’ve gone too far from my own happiness,I’ve stretched myself until I felt numb,And I never realized how bad it was until I didn’t know who I was anymore.So starting now I’ll go where my heart leads me,And where I’m really appreciated.I’ll go where I can spread my wings,And where I don’t need to be…

The Past

I’ve packed the past away, Because I can no longer pretend to be tough and strong. I’ve packed the past away, Because I’ve found somewhere new within me, Where I can process what happened. I’ve found a place where I can breathe freely,And listen carefully to my feelings. A safe place where I can be…

If Your Heart

If your heart was in the right place, It would’ve shown in the way you spoke. You would’ve at least asked, Or tried to understand the other side of things. If your heart was in the right place, It would’ve shown in your behavior. If your  heart was in the right place,I wouldn’t have been…

For A Long Time

For a long time, I’ve been told that grief came in waves. Sometimes the wave is small and it’s easy for us to tell others how we feel. While other times the wave is huge enough to drown us so we remain quiet despite the pain we feel inside. Despite it all, I never imagined…

Finding Peace

It may be a bumpy road,And it may feel lonely at times.But as long as you allow new things to come into your life,And as long as you keep some space in your life,For happiness and gratitude,I’m sure one day you’ll find love and peace. ©ZeinaA.G

Because Of You.

Because of you I know the importance of family,And sticking together during hardships. Because of you I know where my priorities stand,And how important it is to put close family first. Because of you I know the definition of strength,And how to stand right up after each fall. Because of you I know things are…

Moving Forward

I know we’ve all been in an awkward situation before,Where you’ve done your absolute best and it blew up in your face. You may be hurt, vulnerable and unable to see the truth right away. But later on down the road you’ll learn that as long as your intentions were pure, You’ll be able to…

Each Time.

Each time I pulled you back from walking away a little piece of me faded,And now it feels like I’ve totally disappeared. ©ZeinaA.G

For So Long

For so long I’ve accepted coming in barely tenth place in your life, because I thought loving others meant being there when their mood allowed me to. Worst part is that I got used to being in a position where my feelings didn’t matter. That’s not love… Love should make you feel supported, peaceful and…
