| HAWAII

IMG_20160706_222234.jpg Hawaii is truly beautiful.  The sunsets are breathtaking.  People are friendly and kind. The poke bowls are deliciously made, and the beach is just lovely.

I am utterly in love with this place ❤

| BEING JUDGMENTAL

I wonder when this will end; people being so judgmental of others without knowing a person and who they are.  It irks me when a person says such negative things about someone based on their outer appearance.  Someone can have tattoos all over their body and can be the nicest person you’ve ever met.  Someone who looks decent can be the worst one yet.  Oh she is fat, she must be lazy.  Oh he wears a hoodie and looks shady, he must be a gangster or worst a killer.  Don’t judge someone just based off their appearance, get to know them a little and then judge for yourself.  You don’t know what their story is.  Be kind.  Be generous.  Don’t be judgmental.  Be openminded.

Went skydiving for the very first time today and it felt amazing!! 🙂 __

“When was the last time you did something for the very first time?”

On June 5th, I went skydiving for the very first time.  At first I was hesitant and scared, but when it  was time to jump off the plane, I was excited to go.  The feeling when you first jump off the plane was amazing.  As you begin to free fall, you feel as though you are on top of the world.   The view looks beautiful from where you are and the air is refreshing.  You just relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.   It’s one of the best feeling, as if you are flying.

We are all alive, but many of us do not live.  Sometimes in life you just have to take chances, take risks, and conquer.   Do what makes you happy and forget what others say.  Your live, your choices.  Your mistakes, your lessons, your experiences.

| LET YOU GO

If there comes a time
When you have to choose
Between her and me
Don’t choose me
For if you have loved me
You wouldn’t have been with another
Wouldn’t have wavered
Wouldn’t have hesitated
To begin with
And as much as it hurts me
I’ll let you go
Wish
 you happiness
Break my own heart
Take time to heal and move forward


Let you go || © Loan N. 


When you love someone so much and give them everything, letting go it one of the hardest and most painful feeling.  However, by holding on, you only hurt yourself and make things worse.  If someone choses another over you, leave them, and wish them happiness.  Clearly, they just told you that they don’t love you.  They are saving you the pain in the future, so thank them for doing it now, rather than later.  Free yourself from the pain and move forward.

Love is undefined
But if you ask me what love is
I would simply write down your name
For you are who I love
What love should be about
How I came to understand
The meaning of forever
When love is real
Why home feels so incomplete without you
For home is where you are
Your very own existence justifies
The definition of love

All my life I have wanted to wanderlust and travel the world.  I wanted to see and experience new things but never got the chance to do it.  It was either my friends couldn’t make it or my parents were against it.  As I grew older, my desire to travel grew and last year, I took a leap of courage and booked a flight to Hawaii without my parents knowing.  It was one of the most spontaneous thing I have ever done in my life; and I have no regrets.

When it was close to my departure, I told my parents and they were very against it.  However, I had everything planned and told them what I was going to do, and I was capable of taking care of myself.  They were very worried when I left for Hawaii by myself but I showed them I was independent and responsible.  Traveling to Hawaii was one of the most memorable and unforgettable trip.

Never be afraid to try new things and do what you love.  Don’t just be alive, live your life and enjoy every minute of it.  Learn and grow from your experiences and make it count.

Loyal People

One of the worst feelings one can experience is
being betrayed by the one they love.
It is so sad to see so many loyal men and women
getting hurt by those whom they have been faithful to
just to be betrayed by them.
Loyalty is rare and hard to find;
and those who push and throw away 
the people who are loyal to them
will one day regret about their choices and decisions.
Regret letting the one person who
truly love and care for them go.


The thing about people who are loyal is that they only know how to love and see only one person.   Not caring about who else wants them, but the person they love.  And when they are betrayed, the pain they feel in there heart is excruciating.  They will blame themselves, wondering what they did wrong.  Start to think that they are less worthy.  Think that it was their fault.  When in actuality it is not them.  It is just that the other person have not yet found themselves; still confused on what they want.  Too scared to accept a love so true, so intensely that they run away.  Until they truly start to understand the true meaning of love and loyalty will they start to value it.  And then regret about hurting the one person who loves them so deeply and intensely.

Worth Loving

She knew she would hurt herself
Putting his broken pieces back together
But she didn’t care
For what’s worth having never comes easily
And love doesn’t come easily
So the harder it was to love someone like him
The harder she loved him
For he was worthy of being love
With every broken pieces

Flatline

never wanted to let you go.
wanted to hold onto you forever.
But my heart has gone tired and wary.
It’s been played with, damaged, and broken.
My heart is dead.  There is no longer lifeline.
No longer a pulse.  Just a flatline.

Flatline || © Loan N. 


I never wanted to give up on us.
I wanted to fight the odds and make it through.
I wanted it so badly.  I wanted you, and only you.  I was loyal.
I gave you everything I had.  But I guess it wasn’t good enough.
I cared too much.  I love too deeply.
And in the end, it was the death of me.
For loving you so fiercely and intensely.

Home

Your pain, let me bear it
and make it mine.
Let me set you free.
Let me embrace you and melt away
the sufferings you have endured.
Let me be the stars to guide you to a place
with no sufferings and pain.
A place where love never ends;
a place call
home.

Can I be that place where your heart yearns
for 
every time you are away from it? 
Can I be your home?
