Soon I am gonna leave this world
Leave with a smile because
I will see Heaven, Heaven and angels
Don’t be sad because I’m at peace
I am protected ‘cause
This love I have is pure and everlasting
It doesn’t matter anymore
What others might think of me
What’s important is the happiness I gave
And the lives I had saved
I hope I gave light
I hope I shared love enough to make people smile
I know you loved me
So true, I believe
And you were sincere
I will watch over you from here
I am now with the Father
So be at peace
What happened to the world of man
Full of wars and deceit
Life is so short so stop aiming for power
Be the Hands and the Eyes of God
That look with compassion and
Give food to hungry souls and to the weary
These were the things I learned
With wisdom I had on earth
What’s important is the happiness you gave
And the lives you have saved
The child was once happy
Smiling so bright
With eyes like a rainbow
He smiled like there was no tomorrow
He was surrounded with love
Sharing the music from above
But the clock has stopped ticking
He said goodbye to his friends
Traversing their owns paths
Till the ends of the earth
Walking on different roads
I am still walking alone
Seeking for light
Seeking for prisms
I am still lost but I’ll try to see
All of the beauty in this void no one dares to travel
He worked hard enough
To reach his own dreams
Then at the peak, he said
"What happened to me, what is missing?"
He used to give all for love
But there is no one to be loved.
Since he tried to paint on a blank wall,
He found something at last
Making his own path
Till the dawn breaks the night
Why do people focus more on the superficiality of oneself? What I meant by “superficiality” is that people always appreciate more of how one looks on the outside, rather than looking on what is in a person’s soul. The problem with the world today is that people are narcissistic. They want to become famous, do cool stuff even if it’s not (morally) good! Just for the sake of popularity they try to change themselves, and the worse part is that they’re changing NOT for the better. People becoming narcissistic is getting worse in time. These people would just brag anything about themselves so people may praise them. They will just do anything to make themselves look like they have a perfect life in photos they have in the internet. Ugh, yeah the internet makes people even worse. But when I think of it, if they do have a happy life, they wouldn’t seek much attention from people. I guess that’s what they want, attention… or some are just really not contented.
Maybe I’m saying this because I’m an introvert. I don’t like parties that much or making so many friends or acquaintances. But hello, how many real friends do you get on the internet? For example on Facebook, a lot of people like your posts or photos, but does each one of them matter in your life? I mean, yeah, they do matter but how many REALLY matter? How many of those acquaintances do you want to be involved in your life? How many of those friends you have, know the real you?
What I’m trying to say is that superficiality is so in trend in this generation, and it’s getting worse. It’s not healthy because as time goes by, one feels that he/she is worthless just because people do not appreciate how they “look,” and they’ll feel insignificant because they’re not popular. Honestly, it doesn’t matter, because no matter how cool or good-looking someone is, if their attitude sucks then they’re gonna go nowhere. If in the end, they become successful in life, then good for them, but what God looks for is the beauty and purity of one’s soul. If in the final judgement (or let’s say the rapture comes tomorrow), they should’ve changed and repented already so that they’ll be ready.
Furthermore, by concentrating on the goodness of your soul and not by joining in the superficial flow most humans go with, you will find the people who are worthy of your friendship. Those are the people who will truly love and accept you for who/what you are. Focus on the deeper level, mold yourself into a better person through your morals, values, character and faith. What others say do not matter, because what really matters is how you look at yourself, and how God and the people you love see and accept you.
So SMILE. Ask yourself “Is my soul beautiful?” If your answer is yes, then you don’t have anything to worry about! :) It’s all you need in order to please God, and be confident about yourself. If others don’t accept you because you’re too nice or kind or living your faith, then the problem is in them because they don’t appreciate these values. They’re just gonna get stuck getting their significance from the approval of other people who may just be temporarily staying in their lives. Though, try to understand them because they’re the ones who need love the most. Share your love to them because a “beautiful soul” has the capability to give a pure and genuine love.
Every time I think that maybe you’re already with someone else, there’s this little thought inside my head that wonders “Why wasn’t it me? Why can’t it be me?”
"I tried so hard… but I’m not the one"
Oh well, that’s in the past. Let’s leave it there. It’s just a thought… that pinches my heart just a little.
