Caterpillar to Butterfly

And even though the caterpillar never fathomed flying the skies metamorphosis beautifully transformed her, now she can spread her wings and fly. Resilience, if done right, transforms us in the same way. It allows us to realize our true nature, maximize our potential… a new world opens up for us, we just need to spread our wings and fly, ready to conquer the sky. |H.Santos|

Golden Cage, Broken Armor

I can still hear his voice in the back of my head, “You will never be great!” Stumbling, I’d find my way back to my room and write my tears away. This was day after day. 

It was rebellion, I was more than a little trophy he could show off to his friends. It was emotion, I haven’t seen you in two weeks, would you care to please be there? It was disgusting. Time after time evolving on words that hurt like stone. Oh such, such a fragile soul. 

It was my childhood. A golden cage, a broken armor. Birds chirping, parents arguing in the background. A fire gun. 

I refuse to bitch about it like a victim of my fate. Smile for life, Baby, Simply look the other way. 

-H.S.

and all those things you never say, and all those words you never scream, all those tears you never cry, and all those feelings you never allow yourself to feel… they’re what got you like this. Sad, and fragile, like this.

I’m Sorry

I’m sorry but you won’t find me running

after someone that’s trying to be chased.

My heart  can’t and won’t.

I won’t refuse to let go.

Don’t worry about me,

I’m sure some random day I’ll be okay.

Regardless of the numerous sunsets

in which I’ll cry my eyes away.

I’m sure the scars won’t fade.

The hopeless lover will fall through the cracks

and loose herself.

Sure after this won’t see love the same way again.

I’m sorry, but my heart’s too fragile and so am I.

You’ve destroyed my heart, but I still got my pride.

Regardless of it all, I hope you find your way home.

And find true love somewhere along the road.
