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…

#2-Each Time

Each time I begged to have you back in my life,I felt like merely a shadow floating by,And I never understood why.So it’s my turn to walk away,To feel the shadow parts of me,Become whole and real again.©ZeinaA.G

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

I’ll Get By

I’ll get by because the truth just floated to the surface,I’ll get by because I get to turn this new page,With a peaceful smile on my face.I’ll get by because I know I’ve been somehow protected from much worse scenarios.I’ll stand tall and get by, Because I’m grateful for everything that has happened so far,I’ll…

As We Grow Older

As we grow older life teaches us to be responsible for our actions,For the words we say,And the way we react to certain problems. Just because we reached a certain age,It doesn’t mean we can say anything we want,And it doesn’t mean that others need to respond quickly to every single word we say. As…
