Moving On and Finding the Way

time passes by
and people move on
living lives that never cease moving forward

no backwards steps
just a one way ticket to the next step of their life
not many want to recognize this
even though they all live it

ignoring the facts of life,
gives so much freedom
lifts so much pressure

no fear of the future forcing itself upon them
no predictions necessary
just a present time and place to focus the mind on

finally the freedom to plan the future
even though there is no guarantee of what will come
daily routines done for a time

just the time of the present to relax in
and the quiet of reminiscence to calm them

embrace the idea that everything comes in time
but only live in the time that has already come
don't focus on what might come
that is unnecessary
they'll find they're own future
and they will embrace it

Successes and Slip-ups

Celebration for a graduation
Punishment for a mistake

We love to live in success, and spotlights;
And hate to be seen as failures

Which causes a question
Why don't we always try our hardest?

Constantly beating ourselves up
Just because we didn't do something right

does it seem right,
to be so harsh on ones self?

We may not always be able to try again
But can't we try new ideas and learn?

Perhaps we deserve what we do to ourselves
Perhaps we feel victimized by others

But our successes make us so happy
They are achievements that we did

Why should all those bad thoughts and failures weigh us down?
Forget them they don't make you feel good

Just think of all the people who are proud of you for what went right
Think about what you've done to make yourself happy

if the lives of people are good then they are successful
then they can proceed with more successes
