*Each second, is a new chance.*

Find reasons to go on! – Selahsomeone

“Each second, is a new chance”. I’ve heard these words before but now they ring differently. It’s funny that before when I heard them, they didn’t have the same impact. They didn’t make as much sense then as they do now. So I questioned myself, “what have I got to lose?” I am down already what choice do I have? Now, I’m have to act on these words like this is the best piece of advice in the world.

It is true I can’t change what comes next, I can’t change where the wind of opportunity will blow to, I can’t determine what nature has in store for the world but I can change how I respond to life, what I do next is key, a key in my own hands.

Each second, is a new chance. So I will leave the judgement to those that have given up. As for me, I’ve got living to do. A second ago doesn’t matter even if it was adverse. Because I have the next one to look forward to. And the next one after that, and the next one after that. All I must do, is dare to take another step, it is clear to me that giving up is not an option.

Behind the mysteries of life is also the mysteries of choice. Life throws its canon and I shield with my choices. Often times, it is not convenient but if i must survive, I have to make the tough calls. I don’t question the fairness of life because I know it is all in my choices of response to life.

Each second, is a new chance. So my head will stay in an upright position. Keeping my mind on the future, yesterday is meant to be built upon and not to be caged by; If I lose, if I win, I will always have something to build on. It’s all in the same circle of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. So in the end, I will be, just fine. And I won’t waste time judging myself because now I know better.

Each second, is a new chance.

NEVER ALONE

NEVER ALONE

image

Distanced from the crowd i sit to ponder.
Alone with my thought, a sight of wonder.
I do not resist the help from people around.
The spotlight I hope for, I just haven’t found.

Naked in my world with nothing but me.
This is how alone, I’ve grown to be.
Lost to the world Like a farmer’s only horse.
Feeling so alone though I am not sarcophagus.

The Moon shines and my mood slides.
It creates in my ocean a glimps of lonely tides.
Scared yet proud of what I call my own.
But In the market still, the insane isn’t alone.

Though solitary i wade through this trouble
Very much i know that even when i stumble
No matter how far away I am from my throne
With you my friends I am NEVER ALONE…
