I love lists and for today’s Writing 101 prompt, this is mine with the things I’ve learned.
I’ve learned that people change as time goes by
And all that’s left are memories which never die.
I’ve learned that life is precious,
Hard at times, but also gorgeous.
I’ve learned to laugh from the heart
As laughter can heal you when everything falls apart.
I’ve learned to love myself
More than anything else,
Because at the end of the road
You’re always left to walk alone.
I’ve learned to understand,
Forgive, forget and be a loyal friend.
I’ve learned how important is to speak my mind
Be firm and honest, but also try to be kind.
I was taught to enjoy the sound of silence
In the middle of the chaos.
And in the end I’ve learned to never settle,
For little things, insignificant answers or accepted truths
As life’s a though game you have to win, not lose.
