The world breaks everyone
but some are strong at the broken places-
like my father.
never took himself into account.
Always watched and listened,
but never forgot anything.
Never losing to the rain,
nor to the wind –
such a person, I want to become.
“I want to live beautifully.”
Life is either a daring adventure,
It isn’t about finding yourself:
it’s more about creating yourself.
Live in the present.
Launch yourself on every wave.
Find your eternity in every moment.
Even if ‘happiness’ is nearby,
I shall fly on, believing in my future.
Even if I am all alone,
I will awaken, to walk towards tomorrow.
Even if I choose my words carefully,
and avert my eyes,
an unseen tomorrow is still there.
