welcomed peace

leave the doubt on your way in,
take off your shoes, relax.
it’s okay here,
ill intentions do not exist.
we’ll eat some nice dessert,
watch some mindless television
and chat about life’s deepest questions.
trust is given
happiness is forever
loving is as natural as breathing.

here and there

In the city

Designed by a sharp architect,
The buildings have a bit of angles,
Mirrors and glass intertwine
Reflections and clear glass remain
The main foci of perspective.

In the forest

Beyond the shadows of cloaked
Mountain peaks and waterfalls,
Mists of opaque steam and clouds
Blur and distort the possibilities yet
Boundaries go boundless and free.

 

This is my take on how I see the differences and similarities to going a path you understand and know and one that isn’t as clear and predictable. The city life is more of a man-made creation of societal standards and expectations in the realms of reputation and livelihood. The life beyond the city and more towards nature is more unpredictable and less exhibited, so the expectations are less known. Both are paths that may hold great possibility or great failure; positives and negatives. It depends on where you stand and what you value.

It survived another month
The fragility of petals
Grasping a millimeter of stem
Rooted for some kind of stability.

Winds tampered its solid grace.
The calm nights hushed sounds
Of crying rain and cats meows
Wanting to be heard, to express.

The light grew outwards
Unable to contain its bravery
The audacity of survival
The power of life’s everything.
