The Teen phase

Finally reached the age of the glamorous teen
Behold, the world unlike I had ever seen.
Heightened with emotions
From fame, success, knowledge to love potions
Days went tiring myself out in various activities,
Nights went solving Life’s great mysteries.

What I want to do?
Succeed, will I be able to?
Will I ever find my passion?
Something that gives me satisfaction

What about love? True love and lust?
What if in haste, lust finds us first?

Some time had passed since then,
I am still as ignorant as I was ever before.
But I am finally at peace to the core.
Between all that confusion in my life,
All that misery, tears, broken hearts, unwanted strife,
I discovered my potentials, my desire… me.
Things that make me alive make me free.
I don’t have my life mapped out, no.
But I posses everything I need to know.

I am going to enjoy of every moment of my being
Appreciate the world, the beauty I am seeing.
Do what my heart tells me to.
Work, till I am unable to.
Love as though I have an endless source
Have no regret, no remorse.

Make my mark in history
Thus solving the greatest mystery
