The broken road

The broken road

The road has been dark for a long long time,
Forgotten that there’s a sun that shines.
Each pothole’s a burden trying to make us give up,
Where is the glimmer of light to make our lives erupt?

Life starts off easy, later we have to search hard to prevail,
Resentment and mistrust are promises to fail.
Search for a kind spark in every strange face,
Give people reason to believe this is a better place.

The stars to reach for are not in the sky,
They are much closer, maybe in a stranger’s eye.
Take every chance you will ever get,
Say yes to life and always hope for the best.

With fear inside you you’ll never see,
The true person you were made to be.
Look everywhere with conscious eyes,
It’s your only hope to really be alive.

Lough loud and be happy no matter what others think,
They’re only jealous because they think their life stinks.
Be the person you should in this one life you’re in,
‘Cause giving up on yourself is the ultimate sin.

The road has been dark for a very long time,
Believe in yourself and your sun will shine.
Through love and kindness the potholes are paved,
Through friendship and truth our lives will be saved.

I think this is a proper poem to start off the new year with.
A plea to everyone to be themselves, live life and never give up.
Love, kindness, friendship, truth, I think those are good New Year resolutions 🙂
