Meant to be – the 10 second poem. I dreamt that you were alive, that he had never left me, and that my childhood was fantasy. Forgive me. For being happy. This is how it was meant to be. (c) 2011.

Related 17 Comments I like your writing it’s down to earth and honest and a 10 second poem is super :) Thanks! That’s a huge compliment. I was just sitting here feeling a bit sorry for myself, and wondered what I could do with 10 seconds of my life. It’s better than procrastinating. wow.Just wow. I love your poem….and i tried to comment….but somehow it logs in from wrong accounts. PS–my actual blog is http://dreamsflow.wordpress.com/poetry/ and heyloworld is just the username… Thank you, and it seems to have worked. I’ve had a couple of people say comments aren’t working properly – typical :p smart one. ;) A very stark and powerful poem. K. that’s the spirit. :) Forgive me. For being happy. It’s heartbreaking to have to ask for forgiveness for happiness. A lovely piece, nonetheless. A lovely poem, and a lovely idea. Is it okay if I steal the idea for my project? <3 (www.project1112.wordpress.com) Yes, we are meant to be happy. We get one shot at this and it is not other people’s job to make us happy, we have to be happy first with our own selves and then others add to that happiness. I have Lupus (SLE) and it took them over 5 years to diagnose and I had various specialists telling me that it was psychosomatic and that everything I was telling them maybe all in my head. Thankfully I had a great family doctor who knew me better. She persisted until they finally discovered it by more blood work. It sucks being ill, having an illness but, at least then I knew ‘they’ knew it wasn’t all a fantasy. Live your life as best you can, do what you can do to make it the best it can be. Take any meds you’re supposed to take. Be in control of it all. Research the meds, find out which are the best and less side effects and that way at least you’ll feel as if you have some sort of control over it too. As for the poem, it’s fabulous! A poem which brought a smile to my face. Thank you for that David everyone wants to be happy. you are forgiven by God. Cheers. right to the point, well done. join us today, have fun! Wow, this one’s very striking. Thank you :) Send me love. Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
