Le livre de contes
Welcome to my book of tales. Let me take your imagination on an adventure.

andypwrites:

Empty hallways,
broken mirrors,
caged butterflies,
shattered hopes,
stained paintings,
torn letters,
a dying wish
and tattered shelter —- 
are all the things
that can’t explain
all the heartache
that remained
when you left.

Day 8 of #ProjectQOTD
Crediting only yourself for all the good things that has happened to you in your life is being conceited. But who are we kidding right? No man has ever achieved anything all by himself. Thus, there is no reason to be conceited. Always remember that in one way or another someone out there has helped you to become the person you are today. The true sign of strength from all the accomplishments in your life is to acknowledge all the help you got from everyone around you. It may be your family, your friends or your significant other who pushed you to reach your goals and dreams. Tell them how grateful you are for everything they have done for you. And of course, don’t forget to give all praise to the Lord who lent us this amazing and wonderful life. Without Him, we are nothing.

I hang onto you
desperately,
passionately,
intensely -
like a raft to save me from drowning
in an ocean of uncertainty
and waters untraveled.

Had it come to my attention
you were a storm
only to let me drown further
lifelessly,
worthlessly,
foolishly - 
I would’ve swam to shore.

"In the morning I would just lie there and I couldn’t wait to just go out and hang out with my friends, but with you.. I was already with a friend.”

Day 7 of #ProjectQOTD
If there’s one thing sure about lying, it’s that we can get away with it when we lie to others. But never can we escape the guilt and haunting feeling when we lie to ourselves. We can repeat a lie in our minds for so many times until it sounds true even to our ears. However, we know in ourselves that being untrue to what we really believe in will only cause us heartache and misery. So try your to best to remain true to who you really are. Forget what others might think about you. As long as you know you’re not stepping on other people’s feelings and that what you’re doing is right, nothing else really matters. Besides, there’s nothing more liberating in this world than knowing that you are being who you really are and doing what you really want to do.

We seldom see beauty in what is not seen. 99.9% of the time, we try to find grace in the physical. We readily judge and misjudge people based on what our eyes can see. The truth is, there is depth beyond each person’s facade. There are times when a beautiful appearance is accompanied by a rotting character, and a less attractive one with an admirable personality. Even the mirror, when we look at ourselves every morning after we wake up, can fool us to think differently than what we really feel. Always try to see beyond what you can see. You might be surprised by the truth in the invisible.
