Do You See?

It took me by surprise

And then I realized

The moon has always been so beautiful

Though the eyes of a lover might think it more wonderful

The sky is bluer

The grass greener

But it’s always been so.

It’s a matter of choosing what to see

Man Of Steel 

He flies

He dives

He’s the man

The man of steel

Come not to rescue me

By to be rescued by me

Mr Opposite 

We were always opposite

I liked a mug of coffee

He preferred tea

He fell in love with sunsets

While I’ve aways preferred when it rises

He had charm and talked a lot

I kept quite and observed

He was unsure of me

I was certain of him

And that was the biggest opposite we had

Couldn’t Have

Oh how I loved him!

He would have been my first true love

But he wouldn’t let me

He was the one I couldn’t have 

Step Back

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like

To just live a carefree life

I wonder if I would ever have

The chance to have that

When everything and everyone seem to go so fast

I take a step back and breathe

And I take a moment to just breathe

Getting

Getting older,

Getting younger,

Getting fatter, 

Getting slimmer,

Each year is different but one thing remains constant 

And that is the fact that another year has been added to this life of mine.
I raise my glass to what has been given to me

May the years of getting older be years of getting wiser

Expectations 

What drives you?

What motivates you?

What brings hope?

No, not expectations 
That gives falsehood

Brings people down

Never boosts morale

Only negates the mentality
Expectations can be a real danger

It’s My Choice

I am hard to understand, so better not try to

Not many can see what I can

I am considered a freak of society 

Because I choose to be single

At an age that many are already settled.
My being settled is different from most

And I know it’s hard to comprehend

My relationship status is not bounded or dictated by society

It’s just what I choose

I choose me

And others fail to see that.

I

I exist nowhere

I am anywhere and everywhere

I am unnoticeable 

I am….

Perfect Match 

By pairs they came

And lived together

By pairs they went

And loved each other

They clicked

They matched 

While I walk alone

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
