I suppose it all depends on how life treat you that reflects the gaze staring back, mirrors don’t give answers no matter what the question, you can ask a thousand times you’ll never change the outcome.
What that reflection shows is your still here fighting the fight, You didn’t give in, you pulled out the stops before life decided to chase. Ask yourself the questions, don’t listen to the silence, that’s only filled with yesterday’s sadtones .
Listen to the voice that floats around our minds, it’s in all of us, it’s never too hard to find.
Yes the scars tell a story, doesn’t mean you’re broken, you’ve lived and life likes to remind us, Some scars are buried deep, wrapped around your heartstrings, our daily struggles some feeling like combat missions. Carry on no matter what came before it. It didn’t kill you, you must have grown stronger, after all your still here aren’t you.
Don’t rely on someone else to hold you up, that’s what your legs are for, stand, head up. You entered this world helpless, whatever happened next happened regardless. Harsh words but life doesn’t take prisoners,one second your here then calmly it destroys us.
So make the most of any given day, the present is a gift, the future isn’t promised, your plans and dreams so easily rewriten becoming a memory before life simply finished.
What happens next when the darkness fades our vision, do we just cease, do silent souls simply reappear, that’s our next story but for now not even written.
The ghosts of our past remembered by the few, making memories and the thoughts they’d left with you.
The last 48 gone by way too fast, a mixed up bag of tears but oh so many laughs, honestly times I’m honoured to have to witnessed. If I had my time to live them over, would I? The answer, most definitely Yes, I’d live them without changing one single day, well maybe a few but wouldn’t you too.
Life is for living and looking back whilst walking through it with a smile on your face. Embrace the moment and live it.
