1:42 AM

Some things are really just blinding. And sometimes even if we know it, we allow ourselves to get blinded, still. 

And some things are also paralyzing. And even so, we allow ourselves to get paralyzed as well. 

And I think the question is, how do we get out? How do break this cycle of allowing ourselves to continuously get blinded and paralyzed? How do we stop lying to ourselves? When will we have the courage?

To The Year That Had Passed

Sharing the poem I wrote for my Lit 14 class two semesters ago... I miss writing :( 

To The Year That Had Passed
by Jessica Meriño

To the year that had passed
You were not easy
You were storms and lightnings
Mistakes and over bearings
But see
I have done it at last
Your tests
I have passed

To the year that had passed
I bid you my sweetest goodbye
Farewell to a meaningful year
But never
To the memories you’ve brought
the moments I’ve kept
Not even the sorrows

To the year that had passed
Thank you for
the goals I’ve accomplished
Wounds you’ve caused
lessons you’ve taught
I’ll save them all for my tomorrows

To the year that had passed
Say hello
To the new self you’ve honed
Definitely better

To the year that had passed
You forced me
to do things on my own
And for that
I thank you

because I have grown.
