Perhaps

Perhaps

A Poem by Robert Luna
"

Not sure just something that came to me. I hope you enjoy

"

I'd like to believe the best of me
is yet to been seen
Reading a sign that reads
“Welcome to the real world
enjoy all it will bring”

Falling over myself trying to breath
Landing upon my hands and knees
I now know what it means
Finding myself falling in love with the broken people
from broken places, broken families, just like me
Scarred and feeling incomplete
All the ugliness that comes together
to make this a beautiful place

Realizing it’s all make believe and fairy tales
This real world is meant for someone else
maybe the beautiful and rich
But not me
As we rest with the rest of restless
Their insecurities concealed by pride
will be there down fall
Is what a passing dog
whispers condescendingly

Having a near death experience
seeing my reflection gazing at me
Wondering what the f**k am I doing here
a malice truth unfolding
right there in front of me
This place is a lie, no happily ever after
Just making the most out of what we have
Chasing rainbows and blue skies

Knowing I am living on borrowed time
I lace my Chucks up extra tight
I be damned if I go down without a fight
I struggle on because
I like to believe the best of me
is yet to been seen
There is still so much
that hasn’t been written
In this unfinished novel
known as me

This came from some saying Welcome to the real world more unless telling me I was worthless as a person. Hope you enjoy

Humanbeings will always be incomplete for as long as they live because we constantly evolve in our thoughts. One day's truth may fall short of reality the next, attitudes change and mature, circumstances set us back- we are always changing right until the day that we die. We should not live with the pretention that Life should be a bowl of cherries, but nor should we surrender that we cannot gain what we want most in life. It's all up to us You observe your circumstances, look for opportunities (or generate them) and work towards your goals. I often say that we are dealt a hand in life and the outcome depends on how we play out that hand- it's as random and as malleable as that.

I love that analogy. I like the thoughts you expressed here because very often my mind flows the same. I am just sorry I haven't had a chance to read it sooner.

How many times have I paused here unable to fill this little blank box? I guess there was a reason for that. So here I am today.

The best of You
is still yet to be Seen
And knowing what you are now
I wait patiently
for what will BE.

Welcome to the REAL world. Enjoy all it will BRING. It won't always be pretty. Or Fun. But, we'll take it as it comes and be the better for it. Love and thoughts, dear.

'... in this unfinished novel known as me' - says it all! Every verse is truly fine, each showing a different picture in your 'story' of life. Your phrases lift off the page and become actions and thoughts.. it's a superbly put together piece of work.

Yes. Loving others...no matter who they are or what they do...broken like so many are. Choosing love....even in the face of adversity. 100 daisies!

Your writings are always mind compelling. Im not going to interpret your own work like so many people do, because you've already interpreted it in your own words. An amazing write from a sophisticated writer. Keep writing.

Oh! This is very different kind of writing..But indeed it's so great...Because it's about the "reality" of life and I guess that's what it's all about! :(

"Finding myself falling in love with the broken people
from broken places, broken families, just like me "- These lines really wounded me :( :( ..I personally related myself so much with them because I found these lines very close to my style of writing...
And at few places I found a good sense of imagery and also in middle it went towards an intriguing track ( which is again a good thing to happen)

But yeah! After reading this...I came up with a conclusion that I never ever wanna grow up!! I'm a teen and I wanna enjoy this phase of my life to the fullest extend!! :D :D

This is really a great write, amazing flow and I got it very well! :)
( Also, I found it quite inspiring :) )

Everyone must find within themselves who they are and what they want. It's all in finding out for ourselves what our worth is. Our worth is great, but convincing ourselves of that is very difficult.

I like the discovery and the journey that this piece expresses. It's very well done as usual.
