This time, last year.

I am not who I am today, last year.

This time, last year, my world was crumbling down. My life was full of heartbreaks and disappointments.

This time, last year, I was holding a razor. I was ready to say goodbye. I wrote tons of suicide letters. I lost my will to live.

This time, last year, I can’t even complete a stanza. I lost my passion. My poems became heartless. I was numb.

It is just so funny how this world works for us. Nothing is permanent and everything is set to change. For a moment, you’ll feel that everything was against you. The next thing you know, you already have what you want.

I’m a huge ball of negativity and darkness. But at least, I get to see the silver lining out of all the mess. The setbacks are just there to make success taste sweeter. Same as heartbreaks, disappointments and depression.

If you’re thinking of quitting, there’s a choice to continue. If you’re thinking of losing, there’s a choice to win. There’s always a choice. It’s just up to us whether we make the right choice or we take it as a lesson to be learned.

Maybe, you’re experiencing a huge problem in your life right now, but that doesn’t give you the right to choose to quit life. You have to fight and face it to move forward.

Don’t worry.

Everything will get better.

Don’t let go.
