These scars…

These scars won’t last
They might hurt now
The pain just feels too real
Will they ever go away?

These scars cut deep
They are changing you
You can barely think anymore
Will it ever become normal again?

These scars are opening a new chapter
They could become positive
But, right now, they feel deadly
Will it ever feel good?

These scars have taken something from you
Maybe it’s happiness, or sadness
Or, innocence, or willingness
Or, maybe even your life?

But, even with these scars
You are still here
There’s still time
So, what will you do now?

These scars is a metaphorical poem I wrote during a confusing time in my life.
The scars mentioned (while they could be real scars) represent past mistakes/memories that will never be forgotten, and that are constantly haunting and hurting.”

Thank you for reading to the end!
I hope this poem encourages you to turn your scars into amazing things for your future self
because it’s never too late!

P.S. This poem was also inspired by this song!

Inner child…

~Sometimes it’s where your best ideas come from.~

. . .

Always keep your childlike innocence and curiosity about the world. It just might save your life.

Sometimes, we all take life too seriously. We need to remember that we don’t always need to know everything. We don’t always need to be the best in the room; we just need to be the best version of ourselves. We don’t need to stop having fun once we reach a certain age; there will always be an inner child living inside of us.

I think too often we forget that we are all just trying to figure out this thing called life. We should stop being so hard on ourselves and others.

~Never loose your inner child because without it you wouldn’t enjoy life anymore!~
~Your inner child is what keeps you curious and laughing about life!~

. . .

Sometimes (on my commutes to work), I look around and notice everyone in the bus is either on their phones or laptops, and I think to myself: “People need to take a break from work because it will eventually make them completely loose their inner child.”.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, working hard is good, having a good work ethic, and making a successful life for yourself are all very good things to strive for in life. And, they all help you grow in life; and growth is important to feel accomplished and be happy.
But, if work starts taking over your life and starts taking away your happiness and you don’t know how to let your inner child-like spirit out anymore, maybe you should consider taking a break from work to let your inner child free.
Find something that you love to do, that will make you happy and excited; that will let your inner child strive for that moment. So, when you get back to work, you feel rejuvenated and ready to conquer life again.

You can’t keep it locked up forever or else it will eventually start to fade away!
Your inner child is where your true happiness comes from!
Let it out once in a while, and find the balance between work and ‘real’ play!

And, who knows maybe that one time that you let your inner child out, you might think of an amazing idea for that business meeting you’ve been dreading for a while.

~Your inner child could save your life, your happiness and your success!~

Thanks for reading!
If you don’t know how to let your inner child free; I recommend traveling to someplace you know nothing about, so you can get lost like a child and be curious about the things around you!
