Look And Leap

leapFor a really long time, I found myself in a limbo. I was nowhere close the person I planned to be when I was young. Yet, I like what I’ve become—the blood, the sweat, the tears, the bruises and wounds, I wear them with humility. It’s really easy to yearn to be something we’re not, but let’s face it—most of us don’t know how to reach the pedestals we created for our coveted selves. These castles in the air need solid steps to reach to. And these are more like escalators; you can only go one way. When you fall off somewhere, you’ll never come back to where you were. And that is the trick to being content, you make do with where you land. If you are lucky, you’ll have someone to tell you that you are perfect the way you are, with all your flaws and shortcomings. If you are luckier, you’ll figure it out for yourself!

“Something Just Like This”
(The Chainsmokers with Coldplay)

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

But she said, “Where d’you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts.
Some superhero,
Some fairytale bliss.
Just something I can turn to.
Somebody I can kiss.
I want something just like this.”

Oh, I want something just like this
I want something just like this

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
The testaments they told
The moon and its eclipse
And Superman unrolls
A suit before he lifts
But I’m not the kind of person that it fits

She said, “Where d’you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts.
Some superhero,
Some fairytale bliss.
Just something I can turn to.
Somebody I can miss.
I want something just like this.
I want something just like this.”
