Oh Dear Eyes...

Updated on April 10, 2012

let me see beyond...

Eyes they say show a thousand meanings…its a window of the soul, with its tears and joy. As i I sit alone with a blank stare as time passes by, almost half a day over and haven’t really done anything worthwhile.

What a waste of time I know, shame a smile can be drawn but find no reason to show. I sometimes think I am like a living dead. I eat, I sleep, I talk…I breath. But deep inside me was emptiness and I feel like drowning with a cloud of thoughts.

Clock is ticking; I could silently hear its every stroke and with every beat of my heart I sigh… wallowed in my thoughts, my past, my present…and what the future holds for me. What a bummer I am for I know not exactly where my life leads on.

I wish to live a simple life that is happy. I dream to see the clouds and trees in its simple beauty. I long for the warmth of the sun when it sets high up the sky…and oh how I would love a lazy walk as the cool breeze of wind brushes of my hair while the sun settle down and a smiling moon shines down upon me.

Oh my…deep down I sigh…Oh please God don’t make it too long that I may see some signs. Human as I am I get sad and weak, emotional as I am… it stresses me out and I weep. Life’s not been easy but I deserve the blame for the bad choices and decisions I have made.

For the many times in my life I’ve felt so many ups and downs. So many times in my life, I have laughed and have cried. But in these many moments I had bravely stood tall, feeling too bad this time I seem to have given up my patience and all.

Oh Dear Eyes, please help me see beyond my thoughts and feelings…

      Thanks bravewarrior :)it's a great honor being appreciated by fellow hubbers like u who share the same depth in life and passion for writing. Ur warm best wishes means a lot. I do long for the day i'd be basking in the sun, enjoying the lovely breeze of day in full joy as i sit and relax in a beautiful place surrounded by trees and flowers, hear the chirping of the birds...with the most sweetest smile on my face as i write my thoughts of a happy ending. I wish u well too for an easy trek to happiness and best of days to come.

      Hola Racky :) Grazie for ur very inspiring words. I agree that nothing is considered final until our last and final breath. The last chapter of our remaining lives is yet to happen and i do hope it all ends up with a happy smile.

      this is what life is all about.... if u know how to admire even the smallest thing around us.... God is that so generous.... that let's our eyes. be the living witness of what He wants us to share.....forget in a moment all despairs around.... be Glad.. you have those eyes to wander, to admire, to feel that nothing is PERMANENT IS THIS WORLD..... NOT EVEN YOUR BOREDOM AND DESPERATIONS!!!!

      seems like a romance novel description,

      the only diffenrence is you wrote it in a first person point of view. why don't you try doin it in a third person point of view and for sure, it'll be a best seller
