I've lived in the sense...

I’ve lived in the sense that I’m still

I’ve lived in the midst of the deepest 
heartbreaks. I’ve smiled to the point 
where I’ve cried. I’ve been thankful in 
the moments where I should have been 
selfish, I’ve been grateful in the moments 
where I should have been heartless. 

I’ve seen clearly, but I’ve followed blindly. 
I’ve seen the light after many hellish fights, 
but still found a calm sense of self in the 

I’ve traveled far but never taken a step, I’ve
taken a step and went to the reaches of the 
creativity. I’ve dreamed to be among the 
stars, I’ve woken up and created realities 
and crafted countless galaxies. I’ve looked for
myself when I wasn’t even missing. I’ve
found me even when I thought there was
nothing to find. I’ve failed, but I’ve lived
life with everything.

I’ve lived feeling like I wasn’t enough. I’ve
lived knowing I was everything. I’ve lived
writing out my pain, I’ve lived singing my
heart out. I’ve lived in the pulse, but never
in the loop.  I’ve lived knowing peace, I’ve
lived embracing me.

I’ve lived in the sense that I’m still
I’ve lived in the sense that I’m still 

I’ve lived.

I’m Alive, I’m Living...

A nice poem to read.

It wouldn't be wrong to say that our first thought is only a thought (meaning: PERCEPTIONS).
Therefore, we should believe in ourselves, since somewhere there is a room for ourself in our soul.

And that room is, basically, INSPIRATION.
