BY MARY GRACE VATICANO
This often mischievous life
makes me smile.
It makes us believe that nothing is impossible,
yet we have a secret she will never know.
Despite her constantly presenting us
with the ugliest things,
we always succeed
in seeing something good.
She does often place us before a crossroads,
where making a decision can be extremely hard.
But we give it a little thought,
and finally make our decision.
It’d be easier not to decide,
but that too would be a choice in the end.
So we might as well choose a path,
right or wrong though it may be,
it will surely lead us somewhere.
What really matters is that
it is us who decide.
Those people who chose to hang
their hearts up to a hook,
because life only gave them bad experiences,
I say that the soul, the heart of a person,
can never be set aside or hung up on a hook
because life sometimes goes a roundabout way,
but always rewards those who know how to live
with a smile on their faces,
those who know how to give
without expecting something in return,
and those who know how to forgive
because in the end, in this brief transit of ours
we are nothing but blind souls
waiting for a point of light.
Have a good journey, beautiful souls
