Note to self for my shelf
To think of it, it is really not that hard to fly off away from your country for a holiday. Even if it means going for a short one over a span of say, 3 days?
Had a convo with a close friend of mine who has gone for various solo overseas trips and I’m really inspired. I probably just need three things - Time, Cash and Confidence.
Confidence of communication. Confidence of adventure. Confidence of self.
Because honestly, you can have all the time and money in life, but without confidence, you’ll still be in your own bed with nothing more than that strong sense of wanderlust - missing out on real adventures and experiences.
Well, so I guess, yeah…
The alive in Life
I don’t even know how to start.
I don’t understand how it works.
It’s really complicated and fragile,
though I haven’t even experienced anything.
And people think I have it going.
The Forever More (Onely Side)
I sat and created scenarios in my head
Of how my name would be engraved in your heart.
I’ve been seated for far too long, dear.
Warming up the flame from the spark.
As people pass me by like how time does
As time slides past like how my thoughts lasts;
I’m still rooted and wasting away together with my shallow beliefs.
Dreaming awake and sleeping in reality,
I have never really felt it before.
Creating memories out of thin air,
How I dare believe that it could be ‘The Forever More’?
Still seated, now the flame’s burning off
And I can never say “I did try”.
Kept it as a reservoir of feelings,
Of which the warmness kept the air dry.
Close but not anywhere near.
Bounded by insecurities.
Far from anywhere but here.
I’d rather be in an island of my own peace.
"I guess I’ll stay neutral."
