Days In The East..

picture source
Chase your dreams…don't let them chase you
Don't take it the wrong way..I'm just trying to inspire you
Before the military I wasn't sure what I was going to do..
To be honest there are times when I still don't know what I want to do..
But I know I want to be that person that all my loved ones can run to

Runaway…Runaway
Are you listening to your heart?Or just what others have to say?
This is the only game where no one gets to win,or no one gets to stay
So say all the things you need to say..
Do all the things you dream to do
Make being a happy person something that happens all the time..and not just when you get something new

We're too materialistic, some have everything by having nothing
Don't listen to what they used to say in high school..you will be something
To keep it real..I never dreamed of ever visiting London or Spain
When the hand your dealt sucks…something you just have to keep playing

Long days but short nights..
I hope you eventually find euphoria and your internal compass leads you right..
Thinking about the list of people I'm going to have to say good bye to
You know the ones who always kept it real from day one,who I never had to lie to
The only reason to look back,is to see how far you came
There will always be people who try and hold you back,but those are the ones whose position in life will always stay the same
So dream big…imagine one day you'll be flying to your dream location by plane

New memories,new friends & perfect times
These are the moments I'm happy I signed my name on the dotted line
When you already have the best people..what else is there to go out & find
I hope your happy
I hope your okay
I just want to say thank you..
You were the only one who was there for me in each & every way

We never really lose someone when they pass away..
All we lose are the chances to say all the heartfelt things we never took the timeout to say
So say what you need to say & send them some flowers while they can still smell them
Speak from the heart & deeply express everything you desire to tell them
('It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men'
-Frederick Douglass)
But I've been demolished before..
All it took was someone who sincerely cared
Not being able to hold onto happiness was something I always feared
But after gaining some wisdom..I know happiness can only last if it's shared

"All the happiness in the world stems from wanting others to be happy,
and all the suffering in the world stems from wanting the self to be happy."
-Shantideva

Melrose

picture source
Someone gave you all my love..all the love I was giving to you
You were scared of what was real..so you just accepted the love that you knew wasn't true
Most of those guys didn't even take the time to get to know you
But I guess half of the blame falls on the fact that..you don't really know yourself..do you?

Now your in a place where I can't even help
I don't even know what was real..or what you really felt
But when you treat someone so cold,eventually it will be your turn to melt

So I'm floating..I'm floating away
They say the safest place is your heart..so that's where I plan to stay

I don't ever want to see you hurt again..but it's hard to know what's real
In a life where all everyone does is pretend

You and me are part of a plan…
One which I don't think anyone around us..really understands

Now I just feel numb,all these girls want something different from me
Trapped in a cycle of lust and fun

All these things in front of me
They slowly pick me apart from the person I want to be
I'm tuning into one of those guys
I never wanted to feel comfortable with telling lies
But no one wants to hear the truth either
Truthfully I wish I didn't meet her
This girl called life
Most of my friends back home..are having their first kid or getting engaged or already have a wife
I'm suffocating,I just want to breathe
Don't need someone to give me the things I want,but who gives me the things I need
I think secretly we just all want to be freed
To escape all the social pressure and greed
They want you to be this way and that way
To dress and talk and wear your hat this way
I don't have to be the best,I just have to be better
I hate how I expose all my flaws with the type of every single letter
Everything is just happening so fast,none of these friendships/relationships no longer last
Why are we all so in a rush,the faster we go..the faster we crash

Can I still save you from you..
Can you still save me from me..
It feels like I've been locked away for so long
I'm just glad you got the key
You had it all along,you just didn't know
We all have a special part to play,even if it doesn't show
Take care of yourself & always smile
I haven't encountered someone as unique as you in a while..

Devil May Cry

picture source
They say try to forget,they advise for you to move on
But how do you allow something so right,to be tainted so wrong
Some wait an entire life-time for that one moment to feel alive
But if you don't go out there and get it,it may never arrive

We're all connected in someway
Will the rest wake up and finally realize that one day?
Cherish all the little moments,before they fade away
And listen to your heart,& say the words you've been dying to say

That one person who crosses your mind before you fall asleep
You could be the strongest person around,but when they're around you suddenly become weak
What do your actions really speak of?
Are you really portraying what your really made of?

You might be lost forever,but that's okay
The secret to life,is adapting anyway
Adapt to trust,don't adapt to lust
There has to be a you,before there can be us

We're all searching for something..something we may never find
Why do we shut out our hearts,and allow people to store their thoughts of hate in our mind
I mean,when you think about it..we really are just destroying our own kind
We're able to go buy the most expensive watches,but still seem can't afford to spend the time
On those who really matter,on those who really care,because showing who we really are deep down inside is something that still fills us with fear

So break free..break free
If you can't do it for you,then please do it for me
"It won't be in vain,
To swallow all your pain"
Never give up,Don't allow yourself to ever feel unaccomplished again..

Flight Of The Navigator ..

picture source

When two strangers automatically connect..
Without saying a word..their communication is perfect
With no worries of what the world holds next
Because the love they share..mirrors all the happiness & joy they choose to reflect

Is this time any different than the one before?
The say love is when your okay with receiving less and happy to give more
Now I drive about an hour to reach to your door
I can finally lock all the ones in the past that weren't so for sure

It's December 23rd,about 4:19 pm
I have so many different goals & ambitions..I look forward to when I finally reach them
I'm reading this book about Buddha,and he said 'Each person must find the truth within his own being'
You are who you think you are..at the end of the day..does it really matter what the rest of the world is seeing?

And when I see you, everything & everyone else disappears 
The time flies by,it's like we've known each other for years
When we talk about our deadline,it brings you to tears
But nothings for certain..so I'll hold you close until you relax and let go of all your fears

It's been a while since I've been able to write
I guess for once..things I finally starting to go right
I did say before..when you start to hear from me less and less
That means everything in my life is perfect or just one big mess

You can hate me for that..or just take me as I am
Threw away trying to make everyone happy,because depending on others is never a good plan
But I do have about a handful that I can count
That no matter how little of any currency I have..I would always be rich in the sense of being a genuine person..that's the most meaningful amount

So I guess I just want to say thanks,
Thanks for being here,thanks for caring
Everything good & bad that happens to me..is what I'm always sharing
You helped open my eyes for the better
All our wonderfully moments together..

Good People

picture source


There will be few good people in your life..Ones who you know for sure you were meant to cross paths with..Ones who  continuously make a positive impact on you..
Ones who see the bad in you but still choose to stick around..
Learn to appreciate these people..because there will come a time when they can no longer be around..~

You know that person who always tried to tell you the right things to do..
Who when you need a hug or a helping hand..they gave you two..
That no matter how deep in the mud you were..they would help you get through 
You know the person who always put themselves in other peoples shoe

I'm always in my feelings..and I'm learning that's okay
Someone needs to say..all the things we are thinking..but everyone is just afraid to say
I met this person the other day..
And after they told me their story..I started thinking a different way

The type of person you can call at any time or night
That no matter what you did to hurt them,they are still more concern on making sure you're alright
That when your world is so dark and so cold..they become your sun..your warmth and your light
Like the person who taught you how to ride a bike,the most important lesson you can learn..is to remember to always get back up after you fall
no giving up in sight

An ear to let it all out to,a shoulder to cry on
No need for a play list,they know all your favorite songs
When people talk bad about them,you know it's not true
In my head all I can think is..if only they knew the real you

You're something great
No matter how far off the topic is..we somehow always relate
We both know what's real & what's fake
Watch out or the ones who won't help you prepare it,but are only there to eat your cake
Learning happiness is something we can all create
"It's better to be hated for who you are,then to be loved for who you are not"
That's probably one of the most important thing in this poem that I was trying to state..

Gravity

Picture source
You bring me up..
But you still hold me down
You're always still there..
Even when no one else is around
Without you,I would probably float away
I guess I need you more than I think..what more can I say
I'm drawn to you..I'm not even sure why
They say 'seeing is believing' ,I guess that can sometimes be a lie
We don't know what we have until it's gone
Taking you for granted for so long,why is it so easy to do wrong
When will you finally let me go..
I'm not sure if that's really an answer I really want to know
The day you disappear,my entire world will change
I guess when that happens..we will finally understand the word strange
You're one of the greatest things that has happened to me..
I would say your name..but I'd rather mouth it silently
Just want to continue seeing you,move along the journey of life..happily 

I just want to say thank you,thank you for everything
You always gave me so much,even when I didn't give back anything

We lose
But we also gain
We feel pleasure
But we also feel pain
We all live to die
But still some aren't treated the same
We love & we hurt
But in the end will it all be worth?
We give & we take
But at the end of day..decisions are only ours to make 
We may fail
But it's important to try
We cry & we smile
But don't worry about a thing,great thing sometimes take a while
We say hello & we say goodbye
But there isn't a moment,when I wouldn't want to see your beauty in front of my eye
We all have to play this game
But we sometimes lose
Not even gravity can hold you back..
Your destiny is yours to choose..
So be something great
Not matter what they say..it's never too late

Bed Peace

picture source
Finding peace within ourselves is sometimes the hardest thing to find
We all have those nights where we can't sleep because thoughts keep running through our mind

No heartbreak last forever
Things might break,but that's only for better things to come together

Today might suck,but tomorrow will be better
Would tattoo the entire alphabet for you,yeah every letter

And now things are so strange,the miscommunications are multiplying  
I just want for us to be on the same page

Why won't anyone else express how they really feel
I'm slowly learning how to love myself,maybe now I can heal

Stop caring what people think..
To be honest..most people don't think

Be who you want to be,love what you want to love
Kiss in the rain,play in the mud

Life is about the simple things,we sometimes expect too much
Take your time to appreciate the little things,why are we always in a rush

Likes are cool,but you know what's better
A hug or a gentle touch

So I hope this is touching you..
I always try to run away..but I know that's not the right thing to do

So I'll embrace all the love & the hurt
We're all different, but sometimes the tiny bit of difference can make things work

Only you can say what's your true worth
I only want you to have happy tears,like the moment of a babies birth

Before I end this poem,I just want to say I hope you find peace
We all have something special inside us,it just take sometime to release
