The Darkness

Darkness has fallen early from the storm that just passed.
The sound of thunder rumbling has come to a sudden halt.
Birds have silenced their chirps as they sought shelter from the rain.
The gloom that transpired inevitably affecting one’s psyche.
Sullen is my mood as I lay in bed
Staring outside the window while clinching my pillow.
Memories flooding my mind and adding to the desolate atmosphere
Overtaken by exhaustion and sickness
Must I get up?

Follow Your Heart

Everyone always says to follow your heart,
as if it’s not what I’ve always done from the very start.
What do you do when you’re constantly being challenged?
When your dignity, value, and worth have been infringed?
Not just once, or twice, but multiple times.
Between love and hate, there are very thin lines.

Everyone always says to follow your heart,
but when you finally do, they say you’re not smart.
What do you do when you become numb with pain?
When a pile of ash that was known as a heart is all you contain?
What becomes of ash when it is divided further?
These are words that I shouldn’t even be required to murmur.

Everyone always says to follow your heart,
and I’ve always believed in second chances and fresh starts.
What do you do if you’re inflicted with more sorrow?
Then one must remember that there’s always tomorrow.

Guilt

Whenever you regain faith, you begin to feel a sense of guilt about everything.
You regret the things that you have done and the things that you do.
You even regret the people in your life who love you most.
You block people out of your life and treat them coldly.
You should realize that regaining faith should never make you treat those that you love like an enemy.
Remember, those that you love are loved for a reason.
They are those who have stood by your side through the tumultuous relationships you shared.
You cannot change who you are by the guilt that surrounds you.
Don’t let this feeling ruin what is possibly the best thing that ever happened to you.
Not everyone is lucky enough to find a person in their life who loves them unconditionally.
It’s good to be conscious and remorseful of the wrong that you do,
but it’s the greatest tragedy to let your conscience tear into your relationships.
Embrace the faith that you have revisited, but relinquish the guilt that makes you hurt the ones you love.
