Perspective: There's this charitable organization and I wanted to be a part of it. But I didn't wanna compete against my friends for that, plus my studies would have been hampered, so I gave it up without trying. And now I need to let go. That's what the poetry is about.


I had really wanted to be a part of it,

And to be a leader for once.

But I passed it off without even trying.

And now there's no second chance.

Maybe they would have picked me,

Maybe they wouldn't have-

Now I don't really have a way to know.

Maybe it'd have felt like being

Stuck in an unhappy marriage-

The scar in my ring finger was starting to show.

I had wanted it since

As long as I can remember,

But I wasn't sure if it would feel right.

I would have been competing

With people I love so much

And I really hate back-stabbing fights.

And now I gave it up without a try.


I don't feel too good right now but that's okay.

It's time I wave goodbye

To a childhood dream that remained so.

Yes I will cry

But that's how you let go.

Moving on from a dream is hard.

But I can't let it make my whole world fall apart.

When days seem too long,

I'd lean onto God, I'd stay strong.

It's a challenge but I will face defeat.

And I'm certain that I'm going to make it

Through the pain.

I'm moving on again.


I couldn't have helped anyone

When my own mind wasn't at peace.

I would have been a puppet in people's hands,

I wouldn't have done justice.

Most importantly, the stone's been thrown,

It's already out of my hands.

It's useless thinking and regretting.

But it's not over, I need to understand

That you don't need to be part

Of an organization to do charity.

Don't need big donations.

Just a kind heart and mind's clarity.

Right now I need to study hard

And get a job that pays well.

Then I will help people myself,

Independently. I can already tell.

So let me let go on a happy note.

Gather the memories in a paper boat.

It'll always float in my mind, never sink,

But with time, it'll float far away.

With time, I'll heal.

I'll move on, starting from today.


I don't feel too good right now but that's okay.

It's time I wave goodbye

To a childhood dream that remained so.

Yes I will cry

But that's how you let go.

Moving on from a dream is hard.

But I can't let it make my whole world fall apart.

When days seem too long,

I'd lean onto God, I'd stay strong.

It's a challenge but I will face defeat.

And I'm certain that I'm going to make it

Through the pain.

I'm moving on again.


Slowly but surely I'm descending the stairs.

I see a welcoming home. The fire will always burn. I'll always care.

The sky is a beautiful blue.

I think I found my clue-

I need to know that I will win.

I need to keep fighting. I'm not giving in.

A good person doesn't need a badge to certify that.

It's just showing off.

I wear God's loving badge in my heart,

And it'll never let me stop.

People who are starving, crying, shouting,

Don't care about big organizations.

They lean on to the people God sends them-

Anybody who cares.

And I do! I don't want luxury.

I want to be God's servant.

I want to be this world's slave.

Finally the purpose of my life has been laid bare.

God is in my heart.

So it's time for a new start.

Tomorrow is a new day.

I don't feel too good right now but that's okay…


It's time I wave goodbye

To a childhood dream that remained so.

Yes I will cry

But that's how you let go.

Moving on from a dream is hard.

But I can't let it make my whole world fall apart.

When days seem too long,

I'd lean onto God, I'd stay strong.

It's a challenge but I will face defeat.

And I'm certain that I'm going to make it

Through the pain.

I'm moving on again.


(A/N: this just proves that my mind is way too complicated sometimes? I wrote this at 5 am after waking up from a dream about this thing. Hope you liked it? Reviews would be great!)
