Why Didn't I Try To Stop it From Fading?


as they say if you love someone set them free
I guess that is why I didn't try to stop your love from fading
for I know you have found the light
but you stayed with me
and shared your light
but by doing that I trapped you in the darkness
you worked hard to be able to create your own light
and I must do the same
you deserve the light you create you should not have to share
at least not with someone who can not share some light in return
you deserve to reach the highest level of light
you deserve to stand on the highest of the grounds
for that is where you belong
not trapped in this darkness
so as they say if you love someone set them free
and I love you but I must not fight this fading so that you can be free
free to be where you deserve to be
free to be with that someone who adds to your light and helps you climb to the highest ground
not someone who takes some of your light away and keeps you trapped it the darkness
for I will reach the light just in due time
you are there so enjoy it
I will learn soon enough
learn to create my own light
so that I am no longer trapped in darkness
for only then I can truly be happy
for then I will independent
I will be strong

    your courage to admit of what you know and understand about the link of setting one free and oneself finding one's own light is excellent.. always praying and wishing for u.. literally.. i hope others also add u and your fam and the people around u into their prayers i relly do. coz prayers help in their own ways..

    i hope n pray u get assisting guidance towards your goals, to where u wana be, to what ur needing to find out of what you're looking for..

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
