Different Horizons, Same Sun

He was walking down the aisle
He just went back in time
To the days when he would be there
Working all day, even tirelessly through the night
Things not making sense,
Some words still stuck in his memory
Words too big for the boy back then
They were just there, but never came through
“You just have to keep going
The dots always connect backwards”
Only the first part made sense
The owner of the company that wants to hire
Addressing the crowd, which was once his own
“Hard work always pays off, just keep going”
A slim hand rises in the crowd
Fascinated a question pops
“How did you plan all this?
“How did you know this was your destination”
Fumbling to between the truth and his stature
He chooses what is right
Two completely different horizons
But the same sun sets for both
“Dots always and only connect backwards”

Just Keep At It

Does it feel like your own? Even when you are alone Do your fingers grasp it? Is it the best fit?
But you still in two minds Looking through those blinds My future, my present, my past Till when will this last?
Not enough support to ride on Seems like a distant dawn Let me take the “normal” way At least will know day by day
Then, somewhere deep inside “I also don’t want to hide This is where I belong This is what I long”
So here, take my word Need not to go with the herd If there is enough fire Be sure, you will never tire
Just keep at it, don’t drop it Progress begins bit by bit The clouds will surely move You just be in the groove
Some years later, you look back “This is where I changed my track” Not only you, but others around Even those, you used to hound

Away & Stay

As the numbers on the calendar change The feeling is a little strange Not because I had a bad year Not because something was left Some subtle but noteworthy alterations I don’t know it is the new me Or even how much is even under my control But things start from a very basic level The people I was partying with last year The inbox clutter that was The calls that mattered back then The birthday I was planning for Most of the changes are for the good Sorry, all the changes are for the good Some things I decided to miss Others I am glad I could But still the thought lingers in my head Will next year again be so away And will this thought still stay?
