Bitter-Sweet

I taste life

And it surprises me,

Constantly.

I feel so sad

And strange,

As if I wasn’t even here.

Where did time go?

It runs so fast

And I can’t seem to catch it.

It’s all slipping

Through my fingers

Like splashes of water.

Where do I turn to

Now that the happy times

Are gone?

The memories are so bitter-sweet.

Whatever used to be,

Will never come again.

 

I wrote this poem a few months ago but I can still relate a lot to what I’ve been feeling at the time. It’s something you experience in a sort of ‘transition phase’ in your life, where you want to hold on to what was, even if you know that it’s gone. 

Anyways, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time and are excited for the new year to come (because I am!). 🙂

Today’s inspiring quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

You have a choice to close that door and open a new, and possibly better, one.

I just realised something…

Slowly the realisation seems to sink in. The realisation that everything that (ever!) happened to me had a purpose.

The last year was pretty life-changing for me, as it has made me so much more aware of things. I went abroad, I lived in a fascinating metropolis, I met so many different kinds of people there, both good and bad, I got my heart broken. And then I went back home.

The story doesn’t end there though.

It’s been more like an incomprehensible journey I was on and only know I can actually understand why things had to happen the way they did. I wasn’t really sure who I was or what I wanted before these events, but then I got the amazing chance of getting to know myself.
