When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we’re older, and the older we get, the more we complicate things for ourselves.

You see, when we were young we saw the world through simple, hopeful eyes. We knew what we wanted and we had no biases or concealed agendas. We liked people who smiled. We avoided people who frowned. We ate when we were hungry, drank when we were thirsty, and slept when we were tired.

As we grew older our minds became gradually disillusioned by negative external influences. At some point we began to hesitate and question our instincts. When a new obstacle or growing pain arose, we stumbled and a fell down. This happened several times. Eventually we decided we didn’t want to fall…

Poetry..not my own

I write poetry myself but find it too hard to show others my work. I have a hard time expressing how I feel but poetry helps me with that, same as music. The poems below aren’t mine but of some very talented writers.

I Wish I Wasn’t Alone

© Jo
Once when I was little
I was happy and carefree
I used to run around laughing
Until it was time for teaI used to play games
And smile all the time
I used to feel on top of the world
I used to feel fineIt’s amazing how things change
When people let you down
And how that once happy face
Turns into a solemn frown

You search and search
For someone who cares
Anyone who understands
Anyone who dares

Loneliness, it hurts
It kills you deep inside
It makes you feel empty
It stops you in your stride

You cry yourself to sleep
Hugging your pillow tight
Wishing for someone
To hold you through the night

Once when I was little
I was happy and carefree
Now my life’s full of sadness,
Pain and misery

Once when I was little
I was never on my own
But now I pray at night
”I wish I wasn’t alone”

Mask

© Potsim And Pikachu
I was once sad and lonely,
Having nobody to comfort me,
So I wore a mask that always smiled;
To hide my feelings behind a lie.Before long, I had many friends;
With my mask, I was one of them.
But deep inside, I still felt empty,
Like I was missing a part of me.Nobody could hear my cries at night
For I designed my mask to hide the lies.
Nobody could see the pain I was feeling
For I designed my mask to be laughing.

Behind all the smiles were the tears
And behind all the comfort were the fears.
Everything you think you see,
Wasn’t everything there was to me.

Day by day,
I was slowly dying.
I couldn’t go on,
There was something missing..

Until now I’m still searching
For the thing that’ll stop my crying.
For someone who’ll erase my fears,
For the person who’ll wipe my tears.

But till then I’ll keep on smiling.
Hiding behind this mask I’m wearing.
Hoping one day I can smile,
Till then, I’ll be here.. waiting.

Reggae makes me feel alright..

Well I just happened upon a Danish group called Tøsedrengene, which seems to play a mixture of ska, reggae and something else. I’ve no clue what the lyrics are about but I am totally digging the vibe and wouldn’t mind seeing them live.

Check some of the songs 🙂

Not the best quality, I can’t seem to watch the studio-version. It’s blocked..

I love me some reggae, I grew up on it and in times when I feel down, scared or both, reggae always pulls me through by putting my heart at ease. 

One spliff a day keeps the bad spirits away..

Mirrors-Justin Timberlake

Lyrics:

Aren’t you somethin’ to admire
Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side

Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the past
I’m here tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The biggest scene is set in my heart
There’s a space, but now you’re home
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making
Two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

Aren’t you somethin’, an original
Cause it doesn’t seem really as simple
And I can’t help but stare, cause
I see truth somewhere in your eyes
I can’t ever change without you
You reflect me, I love that about you
And if I could, I
Would look at us all the time

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow’s a mystery

I can see you lookin’ back at me
Keep your eyes on me
Baby, keep your eyes on me

You are, you are the love of my life

Baby, you’re the inspiration for this precious song
And I just wanna see your face light up since you put me on
So now I say goodbye to the old me, it’s already gone
And I can’t wait wait wait wait wait to get you home
Just to let you know, you are

Girl you’re my reflection, all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do
You’re my reflection and all I see is you
My reflection, in everything I do

It feels different

ImageSomething has shifted inside of me. I don’t know what it is but it all feels different.
Not necessarily a good or bad thing. There’s something I am supposed to do but no idea what.
They say ‘When someone leaves, it is because someone else is about to arrive.’ In truth, I hope that’s not the case for which I have personal reasons. Either way this is how it’s supposed to be right now even if I don’t like it much. I do feel like the coming period will be a period where I detach from all the things that I’ve held dear to me until now. And just let things happen naturally instead of trying to control and manipulate into how I want them to end up.

I am going to take this time to figure out what it is exactly that I want out of life without letting it overtake my life in the now. I’ve been merely going through the motions, now’s the time to ENJOY my life and celebrate that I am alive and well. Time to let go. Easier said than done but here goes nothing…

‘At times it may feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. That’s when you need to drop the things that burden you. Only carry what will help you evolve spiritually. It’s much easier to journey through this life without your hands full of the heavy things that will hold you back. Free yourself of the baggage. Let this be your drop off zone.’

Anything

If you said you were cold.
I would wrap my arms around you.
If you said you were thirsty I would give you the ocean blue.
I would give you anything the moon, the stars, the sunset too.
This heart in my hands I hold out to you.

I lost the boundary of my physical body. I had my skin, of course, but I felt I was standing in the middle of the cosmos. I saw people coming toward me, but all were the same man. All were myself. I had never known this world before. I had believed that I was created, but now I must change my opinion: I was never created; I was the cosmos. No individual existed.
