Thank You

Thank you
For slamming that door in my face
If not, I will have walked right through
To the life I thought I wanted

Thank you
For leaving me with no options
It meant I couldn’t go wrong
No matter how hard I tried

Thank you
For rejecting my plea
My Genuis did not please you
I had to look in another direction

Thank you
For making me feel so small
It made me see beyond myself
To find what was hidden from view

Thank you
You are the reason I found out
That strength comes out of brokenness
And beauty rises from the ashes

Thank you
You shattered my dreams
You woke me up from my slumber
You made reality my guide

Thank you
You are my angel in disguise
You opened the door to destiny
When you lit my passion to prove you wrong

Thank you
That from where I now stand
I can see your humanness
So I understand and I forgive

Thank you
You were the jail that set me free
The pain that brought me gain
The sorrow that became my winning song

A million times, Thank You!

(Dreams) Frozen In Time

image

Frozen in time
Waiting for life to start
Plain to see
Life took you unawares
You thought giant strides had been made
Cos you gave a 100%
After all the years gone by
Destiny still feels undecided
Somewhere deep down you know
Your life as you often dreamed it
Never really did start
Young dreams
Frozen in time
Fantasy never realised
But no regrets, you say
You’ll just keep living
Giving it all You’ve got
These dreams may yet unfreeze
Until then
No regrets to mourn
