Chances and Choices



Sometimes it’s all about making the right choice.

Choosing between having the chance to get everything and taking that risk of losing it all.

Trusting yourself and believing that things will fall in place in the end.

Thinking it through once and then re-thinking it all over again.

Worrying a lot at the beginning and finally learning how to face it one step at a time.

Holding on to all that you care about, but at the same time letting go.

To see how much of it finds its way back to you.


Sometimes it’s important to face the storm.

To survive it and celebrate your win.

To forget who you were.

To envision all that you can be.

Because you’re getting stronger.

With each day that passes by.


Sometimes you just have to keep going.

Not listen to those voices in your head.

The ones that tell you to stop.

Holding you back from taking that leap of faith.


Because its everything that you’ve dreamed of having.

Everything that you really want now.

It’s waiting there.

On the other side of that dilemma.


Between winning and losing.

Between doubting and trusting.

Between holding on and letting go.


So, make that choice. Take that risk.

And gamble.

Because it might be your only chance.

Because it might be the right choice.

Because it might just be what you really need.

And end up changing your life, forever….





Let it Go


What is it that makes you so sure?

That stops you from thinking twice

How can you possibly know?

If what you wish for is truly right


You choose to admire from a distance

Instead of moving two steps ahead

And silently walk away

Leaving everything unsaid


Yet you speak a thousand words,

When his smile is captured by your eyes

Making them brighten up

Or even a bit misty sometimes


How can you still think of the future?

When all that’s around you is about to change?

What makes you never let go of the belief?

That this one thing will always be the same


What if he never sees you

Because of all those that he is surrounded by?

Or forgets that you stand a mile apart

Waiting for the right time?


How long can you keep standing?

Not knowing if it will ever be true

“As long as it takes”, she said

“Until he flies as high as he wants to”

“Soars across the deep blue sky,

Shoots for the moon and lands somewhere among the stars,

And when he does,

I’ll still be here, waiting

Even if its somewhere far”


“Because it isn’t really about getting,

More about just letting go

Being grateful for having the chance to love

Staying where you are and watching it grow…”


And she ended with those words,

And so, did the questions in my mind

Turning away, I vowed to make the same promise to myself

To give it my all,

Leaving everything else behind….



Perfect Nonsense


You’re living in a fantasy world

None of which makes much sense,

But yet you choose to believe

That there’s a spark of hope,

One that’s powerful, bright and dense


Enough to lighten up the sky

Just like the shooting star,

That you eagerly wait for every night

To wish upon,

Until it disappears to somewhere far


Carrying that one dream

That keeps you awake at night,

Makes you want to give it your all

And reminds you that it’s all worth a fight


One that would end someday

And leave you with nothing but victory,

Turning your life around

And leaving you with a new story


That will be read over and over again

In times of doubt, by your heart

And while your mind may always call it “perfect nonsense”,

You will still choose to believe in it,

As you find that little spark ……..



















All You Have To Do Is Dream


Thoughts are just thoughts

Until they turn into dreams,

And dreams are just dreams

Until they become real


And once that happens

We close our eyes again,

To take a moment

To know how it feels


To measure the happiness

To thank the pain,

To acknowledge the fear

Of having to do it all again


We embrace the fire

Within our soul,

And gather the courage

To keep moving on


To build the bridges

To destinations unknown,

And forget the ones

That somebody had once shown


Burning till the end

And setting ourselves free,

From who we once were

To become all that we can be….

Paint Me A New World


Paint me a new world,

Where I can stare at the stars,

Without thinking twice about

How far they really are


Where I can continue to travel,

For hundreds of miles

Not once worrying about where I’ll end up,

But being sure to spread a few smiles


Where I can choose to fly,

Or to dance in the rain

Where love is all that there is to give

And there’s no room for pain


Where time can stop for a while

And moments could simply last longer

Where I could take a minute to admire

How far I’ve come and how I’ve become stronger


I choose to believe in unicorns,

Rainbows and other crazy things

So, would you be the one to paint me a new world?

One full of magic and countless dreams?








Under The Same Sky


There were two worlds that they lived in – one full of dreams, and the other stark reality.

One where all that mattered was love,

and one where nothing else really mattered.

One which let them choose what they wanted,

and one where there really was no choice.


It was all temporary.

They knew that soon enough,

these two worlds would become one,

and so, would they.

There would be no more borders.

And the distance would disappear.


He glanced at her as she sat across the room.

She looked back at him and smiled, every day.

And that’s all it took to give them hope.

To make them believe that they were one step closer.


But could there really be one world?

Who knew, except for time.

He thought of her as night fell,

As she silently prayed for an eternity with him,

Under the same sky……







Go Ahead and Fall


Go ahead and fall, if you really must.

Maybe it’s time to let go.

Of all the things that you’ve kept inside,

Of that side of you that you never showed


Don’t worry about the shattering noise,

Or the broken pieces,

Or the pain,

Just remember that when its time,

You’ll be able to get up again


Stronger than you’ve ever been,

With new dreams and endless desire

Ready to walk on the path that you were once afraid of,

Ready to leap into the fire


And just before you take your last step,

Towards the finish line

Take a moment to thank yourself,

For deciding to fall, once upon a time…….










Me against Myself



It’s me against myself.

I’m overthinking again.

About how far I’ve come.

And all the footsteps that I haven’t taken yet.


My eyes are ablaze.

Yes, I’m dreaming again.

About you and me.

And our promise to be together till the end.


I silently watch the clock tick.

Staring at the hands of time.

As they discreetly take away,

All that was once mine.


My heart skips a beat.

Here I go, again.

I’m picturing a perfect world.

And dancing in the rain.


It’s almost past 12.

And I decide to end the war.

Knowing that I’m not giving up yet.

And it’s all worth fighting for…
