The Beauty Of the Sun

The Beauty Of The Sun

When the sun sets
It's a beauty of
All the memories
You have...
And when the world goes dark
Things seem impossible...
But don't give up
The Sun will rise once again

Looking Back

Looking Back

Today I find myself
Looking back
Thinking about how it should have been
Regrets are spread across the past
Trading in people who mattered
For one unforgiving mistake
Wanting to go back
Choosing the other path
Life has found its way
To where I am today
This person I have become
Is who I want to be
Both roads would have lead to here and now
Unfortunately the path I followed
Left behind the people
Who mattered most 
My heart feels the loss
I clearly still care
After all this time
I have the memories stored
And the thoughts of the ones that could have been
I can never get back
What I lost
Part of me hoping they understand
Disappointment in myself
For going against
Everything I was
Turning into a robot
Who couldn’t make choices
Or let my own voice be heard
When I went down that path
I became programmed
Stuck until I overrode it
Finding my voice again
Knowing I wasn’t the only one
Who got hurt in the process
Part of my life was taken away
A part I will never get back
My heart
Will always bare the scar
That will have the memories underneath
No matter where life takes me
I will always remember
