You said and I realized

January 26, 2009

Wake up from your dark nightmare
Wake up you are not being fair
Have you forgotten who you were?
Face your fears if you dare..

By yourself you have been tamed
By fears,worries and sadness you have been framed
Be who you are and don't feel ashamed
Do what you want and you won't be blamed

Open your eyes and see your reality
Wake up,you are too close to insanity
You've changed and what is that for?
Just because you met one unopened door

Fight yourself and release the inner you
Care a little more she deserves that too

If I ever go back to my past
I will wish it moves too fast
To be in that place where I belong
To be who I am and stand up strong

Get over my shock and live my dream
See my future and reach the extreme

From now on we are gonna be one
I will forget where you came from
From now on I will say what's done is done
I will believe that the best is yet to come

Before I wrote this poem I was down and too depressed, but then my good friends started to try to get me out of this mood.This poem is what they said and what I decided to do :).
