Bitter Earth

I was always the kind of person
to give people
second
third
and fourth chances.
I suppose it stemmed
from the idea
that this world
is cruel enough already,
so why become just another
broken soul
incapable of seeing
the amount of pain
it inflicts on others?
But somewhere along the way
my heart changed.
I grew more guarded
and the love I once gave away
so freely
became a finite source.
I grew distant
from people that called me their friend
because I could not trust them
with my heart.
I had been hurt
so many times,
that I now no longer care
about finding someone
to share my life with.
Maybe I let my pain
twist me into one of them.
Just another broken soul
afraid of giving love
and not receiving any
in return.

    This is so beautiful. I guess we all are born this way; denying to hurt people but with time when we have taken more than enough hits and our bodies start looking like a canvas of bruises, that’s when we give up on this idea and become just like everyone else.

  2. That was such a intense creation. I liked the idea. Hope its not true and you are fine and safe. πŸ™‚

    This is true for many people. Including me. But you know what, we are the strongest people ever existed… We are the ones who know value of kindness and love 😊

    Serve humanity, and it will be retuned to you soon. Throw away kindness like confetti. Love has power to change anything 😊
    Take care.

      1. I know. Cause i have gone through that. We’ve done things in our past for which we regret. But dear that’s the worst feeling. πŸ™‚ We can’t change it. So.. just take care. And most importantly, live the present 😊
