Sometimes...

Sometimes, when at a crossroad, i sit quietly and try to listen to the winds, try to listen for the universe to tell me what to do, and i can't read the signs

Sometimes, i see someone so poor, so hard working, so brave in the face of misfortune, and my heart aches as if their pain was my own

Sometimes, i feel the weight of my parents burdens, and with all my might i wish to go back in time and to help them out when it mattered

Sometimes, i look back, and wonder what i could have done to make it better for that someone who leaned on me and fell because i didn't know better

Sometimes, while with loved ones, i dream away into their future and fear for them so much, that i don't want to leave them at the end of the night and go home

Sometimes, i feel so many things at the same time, that i get close to tears hoping for a God out there to just send me peace, and tell me which of my feelings are worth feeling

Sometimes, i am caught off guard, and my heart melts unexpectedly, and i feel myself cursing the battles between the different parts of me i was handed with this life

Sometimes i dream, that all is simple, that all is as it should be, and that my path becomes easier and my self more solid

Sometimes i smile, like the world is mine, like my soul is free, like i could want nothing better than today

All these things that happen sometimes happened to me today.

I'm not entirely sure how to express what i want to get across to you but i'm gonna try by telling you that, these things you describe, I imagine everyone encounters them on a daily basis,but the difference is that not everyone internalizes them the way you do. To see the beauty of it all and be able to allow it to influence you in such positive ways is both a gift and a blessing.

Some of these can happen to me all in one day, and I feel overwhelmed. I still go to sleep with my eyebrows up in disbelief that I can feel so many things. It makes me feel alive, it's refreshing :D
