fall

you remember  who i was

see me now

like im nothing at all

but im proud of who i am

how ive grown

speak like you know it all

but everything is nothing

we all fall

so far

so short

the bar was raised too high

im not too proud to say i cry

its a lonely life

but i know who stands by my side

give up

it is no more

the bar was raised too high

we all fall short

It’s Only a Season

I never liked fall or winter. The cloudy days, cold rain, and bare branches always left me in a depressing haze… but recently I had a change of heart. Leave it to me to take something simple and complicate it with deep quotes and over-thinking, but sometimes my over-thinking leads to a positive change.

During my walk a few days ago, I was gazing at bare branches and the most obvious thing dawned on me: It’s only a season… The trees shed their leaves so new ones will grow. Someone will be like… um, DUH… but it was a revelation to me. I always knew this, but never completely understood. This season is not a sad end, but a moment of transition. Then another light turned on.. This applied to my life as well. Moments of loss or emptiness were only a stepping stones to something new… possibly even better than what was before. Sometimes living in the moment is a painful thing to do, but it’s not so bad when you see things for what they are.

The past: Gone

The present: A moment of transition

The future: Unwritten

Happy 2012.
