I Looked Inside

I looked inside,Into my depth, My night I thought will never end. I tumbled over the things I couldn’t see. I tried to focus into the darkness,And that was when the stars appeared. ©Zeina A.G

The Whisper

The outside voices mock you for being different,And for expressing yourself. Outside voices try to bring you down,To drown you with their negativity,Until you start doubting yourself. They can drive you insane,And make you question your worth,Until you’ve had enough. Just when you’re about to scream,A whisper from within nudges you gently,And lovingly to remind…

Some People

Sometimes unexpectedly some people walk into your life and make you forget why you’ve built those protective walls around yourself. Such people are hard to find, but they exist. They help you heal from all the hurt you’ve gone through. They guide your steps even if you feel they’re tiny and insignificant.They also remind you…

Confidence.

You want to express yourself,To save your sanity,But what if people knew what was exactly on your mind? You want that peace to return to your life,But what if they got angry,And stopped talking to you. You want to try something you’ve never tried before,But what if people saw you failing? If you want to…

You.

Maybe you were that warm gust of wind,That embraced me on a cold lonely night, Or maybe you were that stranger who smiled sympathetically,When I felt tears stinging my eyes. Maybe you sent me a sign,In a cloud or a sunset. Maybe you were that bird that perched near me,And then flew right after I…

Sometimes

Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth listening to you ,Because your words seem truthful,But your actions aren’t consistent. Sometimes I wonder why I ever trusted you,Because all you do is hide behind empty promises,And words that you don’t mean. Sometimes I wonder if it’s only my imagination ,Because you seem to be there,But only in…

It’s Not A Competition.

It doesn’t matter who was hurt more,Or how lucky someone is because they suffered less. Just because they didn’t go through what you went through,Doesn’t mean they haven’t been bruised.One common thing about heartbreak is that it affected us deeply,Seeped into our souls,And changed us in so many ways . We may be walking parallel…

Control

Just like you couldn’t control when your sun went down,You’ll never be able to control when your path shines bright.Just like you can’t control the waves,You can always choose which ones to surf.You can’t control the words people say,But you’ll always be able to control how you search for peace and silence. You can’t control…

The Horizon

It’s therapeutic to get away from all the chaos and drama.To just drive somewhere where you could stare at the horizon with hopeful eyes,Without anyone trying to define what you see and feel. You get a lot of signs that change your perspective.It’s a grounding experience that reminds you ,You’re worth more than the words…

Faith

A soft sob echoed through the house as she mumbled, “God! Are you there? I’m not sure if you’ve been listening today.”  Silence answered her while her mind kept rewinding the events of that day. Silence can break hearts especially when the world closed down on her and brought her down to her knees. She…
