A Touch Of Life

right now
i am feeling inconfident
like i’m the ugliest person that ever lived
like everybody else is in triumph except me
like all my dreams are out of reach
like being loved is out of the question

how can one feel so low
and fall so deep?
i don’t like this feeling
it’s crushing my spirit
my faith in what i believe in

life gives you tests
sometimes you excel
sometimes you flunk
and sometimes you’re just not available to sit for it

what is it about life that makes it so hard to understand?
is it the fact that our existence is beyond our research?
or is it because the greater power that created us is not here to give explanations?
or maybe we just question too much
and take what’s most important for granted

life is a long journey
for some travelers, they begin theirs having all that they will need along the way
others just start unprepared
it’s hard to guess the destination
when the map we have is in the form of faith
but in the end
it’s not the destination that matters
it’s how we get there

some take the long and safe journey
others took the shortcut but not without risks
some took more detours than he should
for too many turns can get him in the wrong direction

and in this long journey
sometimes, paths will cross
strangers will meet
either they will become friends
or enemies
or they would turn their heads and continue being strangers

sometimes friends will turn into lovers
and they journey together,
hand in hand

enemies will get in each other’s way
try to be the winner
in the game of greed and jealousy

and the strangers
well, let’s just hope their paths will cross once more
and maybe then the outcome will be different
