Life’s like an open door to an empty room,
Full of choices to be made,
Without any sweetness in looking back to what was in nostalgia,
Nor to what is in tread or anticipation.
People you ought to trust most keep secrets from you,
As you keep secrets from people who trust you most,
Having no clue of either’s hearts,
With all that is seen being just a cover.
Consequences come with choices,
Choices made from gathering enough strength,
To walk away from bad ones, for the greater good
And never to regret to regret anything.
There’s nothing better than what you have,
Apart from that which you’ll gain from improving what you have,
For life offers what you desire,
And sometimes, what you can handle even if you did not desire,
Just a fair circle.
