To Be Continued

I fell in love with you but you didn’t

So that was an opportunity we both lost.

You fell in love with someone,

I got hurt and bruised.

Eventually I moved on and so did you,

But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.

Soon after your new love moved on without you

And we lost touch,

I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing

For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.

Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again

You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.

Our story ends here

Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.

Motivated

I’m done wishing, I need to act.

Got to get myself back on track.

Got to stand up and start somewhere

Or else I’ll be stuck, I’ll be going nowhere.

If not now then I may not do it ever

Got to get a move on and never say never.

It’ll be hard, and that’s for sure

But I know what I must do, I must endure.

I’m done wishing and here’s my first act

To get myself back on track.

Office With A View

“Good morning”, says the sun

Bright and early it appears.

Beyond the horizon, out at sea

Oh! The day looks clear.

Silence, as this side of the world wakes

Silence, the only thing I hear.

I start my day with a view like this.

PS. I took the above picture from my office’s roof deck.

Nearly There

When I haven’t started, they doubted me

Which made me doubt myself too

But as I started, those who doubted faded slowly

So I did what I had to do
Step by step, slowly with each inch

I worked hard despite getting tired along the way

Almost losing sight of the goal, so myself I had to pinch

I questioned myself but carried on anyway
And now, here I am where they say I could never be

I’m nearly there despite the bruises and scars you see

Full Circle

The road takes me back to where I once was

But I notice slight changes

Things that used to be there, gone

Things that weren’t, appear

And as I walked further I got nearer

To where I once was

But now, I am different

Sweet Sweat

The mirror told no lie

I needed to start, I needed to try

I’ve been on this road before and I know I can make it

Like others before me who stood up rather than stay and sit

A goal has been set and my mind too

Get up lazy bones, yes I’m talking to you

Start the workout no matter how much you have to bend

You’ll thank yourself later when you get to the end
