poem

One of these nights, I won't wake up again, Nor one of these days, will I come back again. My wrinkled skin and my feeble bones, Can't stand this chilly wind, and my wobbly knees squeak in various tones. Somewhere down the road, my hands won't be able to pat your head, I know how much you treasure my food, my glee and me, though you never said. As evening of my life catches up, some wishes I sigh for, If only I had the magical lamp of ancient lore. I'll wish I was a poet, to render your delights forever alive, And a painter too, to preserve your triumphs. A comic, always filling you with joy, And mostly, I'll wish to be a better father, for my boy. I still lay awake at night, taking trips down memory lane, It's all you, with your little fist around my finger, giggling at me with those sparkly eyes. All your firsts, I remember them all by heart, And your victories, my son! there is no prouder father on earth. My son, I have a million things to say, with the reaper at bay, Billion memories to hold, I keep begging to let me stay. I.. Son I, I am sorry, for the times I hurt you and let you down, Please find it in your heart to forgive your old man. Let me pat you with palm of my hand, As long as I can, Stay, here with me, As long as I am, my son, As long as I am.

If only we'd see the world Through another's eyes We'd see the pain and hurt Buried in disguise - heartsofutopia • • • Often we see things infront of us and forget to delve deeper into whats beyond the surface. Today, let us take a step back, keep quiet, and observe those around us. Observe the way that mean girl picks on people. What's beyond that surface? Beyond that disguise? Observe the boy that didnt eat lunch. Or breakfast. Or dinner. Whats beyond that? Observe the way people treat each other and you might just find, humanity has a lot of growing to do. And we need to do our part and start to help it grow. People need to learn to dig deep, and try to identify the intentions of people instead of merely the surface level actions and words. We need to look past the facade and see whats on the other side. • • • #motivational #poem #quotes #inspirational #original #mine #photographer #sun #mirror #car #sky #nature #wonderful #unedited # nofilter #bright #lookpast #deep #pain #disguise #photography

I guess I'm learning life.

Reminiscing memories I’m barely getting older Used to sit around and wait Im growing getting wiser My heart is getting colder And I’m steady past the pace Gaining knowledge getting stronger Old friends love screaming shit changed And I love who’s left surrounding . . . 📸: @dwsnapshot . . . #philly #philadelphia #queen #purple #glitter #fashion #model #fashionmodel #nyc #newyork #edgy #chokers #jewelry #dope #poem #decisions #poetry #naturalhair #editorial #editorialphotography #beauty #highfashion
