Childhood lessons…

As kids,
We acted out things a lot,
Whether for fun,
Or to emphasis a point.

Remember whenever we were told a secret,
Or when we just needed to be quiet,
We would “Zip” our mouth,
“Lock it” at the side,
And “throw the key away”.

It honestly helped,
And it was taken so seriously.

Now,
Surely we’re not kids anymore,
However it truly would make a difference if people still knew how to just be quiet.

Even a second of silence can make a difference,
Whether it’s to listen to a point,
Or rethink whatever you’re planning to say.

Don’t forget your childhood lessons,
Yeah they were fun,
But now they could save you from a lot of trouble.

The little fragile child…

I remember the little Fragile child,

The one that used to giggle and laugh while running in the shinning rays of the summer sun,

Chasing after the birds,

Dancing with the wind,

Swirling in the rain,

Jumping in the muddy puddles,

Getting as dirty as can be.

 

I remember the little fragile child that lived life to its fullest,

Using their imagination to get rid of boredom,

Yes there were scraps and there were tears,

But that little child made the most of every second before they heard,

“It’s time to leave,”

But Ofcourse didn’t stop playing until,

Bedtime it was.

 

That little child,

Ran to mummy and daddy for hugs and kisses,

And always fell asleep smiling,

Dreaming of all the adventures they still had to visit.

 

They were learning,

Growing stronger,

And getting wiser,

Building up courage and skill with every experience,

That will help them conquer the struggles they would bound to encounter while getting older.

 

That little fragile child still exists,

Even in the visibly stronger and older me.

 

 

 

A step in the right direction

If you play it safe in life you’ve decided that you don’t want to grow anymore.

After hours of talking with a childhood friend, I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I opened up. Okay maybe it seemed like nothing, but those couple of words I said were a huge thing to me. I let someone see what I’ve been able to hide so well for so long.

Ofcourse because of my trust issues I started to over analyse everything once she left. Was she going to tell anyone? Was she judging me? But I’ve decided to put those thoughts aside because what’s done is done. And I realised I really hadn’t told her anything major but I don’t know it felt like a massive step.

Well anyways, we’ve both established that I’m one that plays it safe. Which ofcourse is the complete opposite of her, and she said something that had me thinking, I even found a quote that summarises what she was trying to say.

I have dreams, and goals, I have a passion and potential but I’m restricting myself from all of those things. So my next step is definitely going to be in the right direction. I’m going to strive to accomplish everything I ever dreamed of and imagined.

I’m not going to make a Prophecy but I’m going to make sure I’m remembered for all of my success.
