Words [poem]

Words flow through my mind and onto the paper.
I spend minutes trying to explain concepts
that have existed for centuries.
Love, hate, fear, hope…
they seem too complex for most people,
but when I think of them all, I can almost hear a faerie
whispering their meanings into my ears.
Why try to complicate life?
Why not just let things run their course?
I haven’t been through much,
but I’ve been through enough to teach you something.
Life is never perfect.
No matter how you act, someone will tell you you’re wrong.
No matter what you do to avoid it,
someone will end up causing you pain.
The only way to live life is to see it through your heart.
Look at the motives behind the actions,
the meanings behind the words.
Pay close attention to how you let yourself feel.
You can hurt only yourself.
I’m not trying to say that you can’t
save yourself some hardships.
What I’m trying to tell you is that
things don’t have to be anything
but what you want them to be.
If you don’t like something, change it or cope.
Don’t waste your time or others’ complaining.
Words without action will always be words,
but actions without words are a language of their own.
