Never Changing

Never Changing

A Poem by Kumala

Never Changing.


Searching through the past

Recalling my mistakes

Remembering the times of failure

All the heartbreaks


The feelings of hurt and pain

But also, all the love

The smiles and all the happy times

And the praying to above


Fun and games and wishes

All the hopes and fears

Times with friends and loneliness

The laughs but all the tears


The loss and gains

Of family and friends

All the times of faking

The days of playing pretend


All the running and hiding

Wanting to turn back time

Breaking down, then moving on

Learning to draw a line


Holding my head up high

Putting on a smile

Repeating the same old words

You’ll be happy in a while.

"The loss and gains
Of family and friends
All the times of faking
The days of playing pretend"

This is quite a reflective piece! We all have memories we cling on to.. Hopes of a new and better tomorrow.. People we don't want to remember... I deeply felt the emotions in this one..
Nicely conveyed 👍

You're welcome! ☺
this was beautiful. and also gotta say, think my favorite part was the 2nd to last stanza. and the "learning to draw the line" that was vivid for me. something I've had a tough time with as I grew up. say 4 years ago down into my teen years. struggled many years. and finally i've been better. took a long time but glad I am where I am at. any way, I am talking up a storm. sorry.. anyway. a most lovely read. and hope to see more.

I was feeling the same when I wrote this at the time. It was as if I was trying to make myself real.. read more
What is happiness? Only those who are born with it know, others born with anger, frustration and sadness know nothing but that? Should we be born again in another life of happiness? Theres many things the world can throw at us, but not emotions, they are born from inside. So how do you force them to arrive?Change your world, the one you can hold on to.
