Make up your mind and tell me what it is that you truly want
I don’t understand what it is you’re trying to say
Or not say.
I can’t read you
Just tell it to me straight
And make up your mind
I imagined him
And in my mind he came to be
He was all and everything
He was not mine
He belonged to no one
But he gave his heart to me
I gained the confidence
And then I lost it
Lost the weight but gained it again
Lost the hope that it took too long to get
I’ve lost my mind which I hoped to save
I can’t relate to makeups
To tips and their tutorials
Sometimes I think it’s too superficial
But I hold my tongue.
Why can’t women be encouraged to read more books?
That intelligence is real beauty
That the mind be powered
Rather than the face getting powdered
That we buy more of what can help fuel our astounding brains
Rather than outer beauty that melts away with age.
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
Outside he appeared to be jolly
Inside he was feeling hollow, empty
He could feel something creeping in his mind
It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind
He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it
But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it
Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see
It took over him so his life he took a finality
He bowed his head and there himself he hanged
The darkness he could no longer withstand
I keep imagining what would have happened
When I know it couldn’t have happened anyway.
I keep wondering where we would be
When before it started we were already lost.
And so I stand at a place of imagination
Where imagining you and me is possible,
Where we once could have been, remains.
Just how I like it.
Peace of mind
This is my oasis
She has a vivid imagination
Things in her mind, wonderful creation
Things kept locked on her head
Things she has never said
Sometimes she lets her mind run away
So she can come back to real life in better ways
