I Used To Wish... - Poem by Lilly Solares

well... nevermind men...
We're so complicated!

If cavemen were as people describe them
when apparently they weren't into relationship problems as sucky as in these days...
if it all could come down to 'I like you so I'll smack you and take you with me'...
of course we're talking about an ambiguous person with an obscure personality...
but what I mean is... I wish it could be so damn simple!
If it is so...I wish I could be one of them.

I used to wish I could be happier than I am... I already AM happy... but without measure... without limit

I sometimes wished life could be easier, that social preassure could cease to exist
and that we could take more time to find shapes in the clouds
than money in bank accounts,
to learn more things and share more love.

I wished some things weren't as complicated,
that desitions weren't life choices all the time.

I used to wonder if there was a way of making life easier
and I read a lot of things that told me that life is a journey
and when I understood that the future is NOW
I finally got that the most important thing is living, learning, loving, giving... not making life any easier.

I found out that happiness is in every single moment that goes by.
