I Forgot…


I forgot what life is all about…

I forgot what it meant to cry…

I forgot what it meant to be happy…

I forgot that pretending to be happy doesn’t make you happy…

I forgot that pretending to be smart doesn’t make you smart…

I forgot that you can’t just forget the past in fear of the future…


I forgot that you can’t control falling in love…

And if you really do fall in love, you can’t make yourself fall out of love…

I learned that I can love…


I learned that it’s okay to  mess up…

And it’s okay to ask for help…

I learned that it’s okay to complain and whine

to your friends; even for a whole day…

I’ve learned that the greatest things about life isn’t the parties,

being popular or always having a good time…

I’ve learned that sometimes the things we want to forget

are the things we need most to talk about…

I’ve learned that sometimes the things you want most

you just can’t have…


But basically I’ve learned that my family and friends

are the most important people to me in the whole world;

And without them, I wouldn’t be who I am today…


Have a wonderful day my beautiful friends!

Special thanks to Chamiree

    I\’ve also learned much from my family and friends. The main thing I\’ve learned is that I shouldn\’t always forget the past or sit around wishing things were different. If my past was different, I wouldn\’t be the person I am today.

    Lessons learned can truly be forgotten from time to time thankfully there\’s always someone out there to remind us and that\’s a blessing! Thank you my friend.
