The Small Picture(s)
I drowned the world surrounding me with melody in my ears.
I challenged myself, time and time again.
I walked around with only one person on my mind.
I said it the way I thought it.
I loved the way I wanted to be loved.
I kept away from the crowds. They made me nervous.
I exceled under the highest of pressures.
I smiled to convince myself it'd be a good day.
I gave more than I took.
I learned to be patient with the people I love.
I did not believe in regrets. My mistakes are a part of who I am.
I lost all my inner peace when facing stupid questions.
I trusted only myself when it came to the quality of work.
I stopped bothering to do what was never appreciated.
I thought too much about things I'm not supposed to question.
I made mistakes knowing how huge they were.
I knew my faults but rarely felt like changing them.
I hated it when someone would steer me into a different direction.
I took my best friends for granted, knowing their friendship would be a 'constant'.
I lived. I learned. I loved. I lost. I changed.
And it finally dawned upon me that life is bits and pieces, moments, situations, reactions...stories you create; a book that you continue to write with the small parts of you. It is those small parts that make a human being. It is those parts that shape your story.
