I have been chasing it
all this while
for so many years
with the rhythm of my heartbeat
But, is ‘it’ something existing?
To my horror, ‘it’ is void
Therefore, I start to ask myself
what do I want in this short life?
Do I want success that is born out of toiling days and nights?
Success that is eating away my soul and happiness?
Or I prefer the journey of exploration
a journey without an end
the adventure and surprises?
the gain and growth?
Which kind of compliments I want?
The one simply given away
just to please my heart
or the one given with a sincere and respectful heart?
for the miracles I have created in many lives
Which kind of love I want?
The one that hurts me like thorns
the one that depletes my self-respect?
the one that makes me cry?
or the one that is always there for me throughout the rain and storm?
or the one keeps me in company?
I need to adjust my focus
towards what I really want in my life
Life is like a burning candle
It flickers when wind comes
It can be blown out easily
What you really want in life is important.
If not, you are just a slave
be the controller for the wheel
navigate through the sea with fun
If you have found what you want,
work and strive for it
