The Teen phase

Finally reached the age of the glamorous teen
Behold, the world unlike I had ever seen.
Heightened with emotions
From fame, success, knowledge to love potions
Days went tiring myself out in various activities,
Nights went solving Life’s great mysteries.

What I want to do?
Succeed, will I be able to?
Will I ever find my passion?
Something that gives me satisfaction

What about love? True love and lust?
What if in haste, lust finds us first?

Some time had passed since then,
I am still as ignorant as I was ever before.
But I am finally at peace to the core.
Between all that confusion in my life,
All that misery, tears, broken hearts, unwanted strife,
I discovered my potentials, my desire… me.
Things that make me alive make me free.
I don’t have my life mapped out, no.
But I posses everything I need to know.

I am going to enjoy of every moment of my being
Appreciate the world, the beauty I am seeing.
Do what my heart tells me to.
Work, till I am unable to.
Love as though I have an endless source
Have no regret, no remorse.

Make my mark in history
Thus solving the greatest mystery

What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

This is awesome! :)
