Sojourn

More than eleven thousand days have passed since I started this voyage. Laughters, anguish, challenges, setbacks, achievements; These shaped me into who I am presently Resilient. Strong. Persistent. Empowered. Life's roller coaster made me realize a lot of things paradoxically That people will only be there for you as long as you are beneficial to them That everything changes, even the so-called eternity is merely superficial. That trying to fit into somebody else's world is a big no-no Because you yourself has an own world waiting to be built and to ameliorate That being quixotic is not okay- foolishly impractical- Especially in the pursuit of your own worth as a human being and the essence of your existence That in life, you will be surrounded by lofty individuals- Insulting and questioning your own capabilities in haughty manners That discouragement is an everyday thing if you will allow them to get in I realized I should not be enervated Overbearance, dominance, supremacy- ignore them all. Truth is, you are the anchor of your own ship It's you who will decide whether to be miserable or to be cheerful Life's a maze with detours and crossroads, sometimes you get lost You'll come across paths with invisible tracks- completely oblivious But do not ever despair- make or choose your own path Even at times you have to decide whether to take the road to the left or to the right Honestly, I took the road to the left only to find out there's nothing right I ventured out to the right track only to find out there's nothing left for me Nevertheless, I continued traversing the unfamiliar routes- come what may. Rest if you're tired. Stand up if you fall down. Cry if you're sad. Scream if you want to. Listen to me, you have the sole power over your whole journey-make the most out of it. Think about it. Do what makes you happy. Choose who makes you feel blissful. Because life is a sojourn- a temporary stay.

The optimism in this write is so heartfelt. "Life's a maze with detours and crossroads, sometimes you get lost You'll come across paths with invisible tracks- completely oblivious But do not ever despair- make or choose your own path" Lovely!
