Wednesday Words [4] - Somewhere, Someday


Baby, you’re surely going to get your heart broke again
By the tides of pain that recede and then come again
Who’s to say why we put ourselves in these situations?
This world is filled with unnecessary complications

Darling, you’re going to cry again
People use people for their own gain
I promise it’s just something that happens
And the road is bumpy even when you strap in

Honey, you’re going to have to learn again
You will see sun shining through the rain
Sometimes the hurt is a disguised blessing
Through the doubts and through the guessing

Go, go find yourself somewhere you don’t want to leave
Move, move on from here to find another story to weave
Bitterness, it only leaves your heart in a state to grieve
Forgive, even when forgiveness isn’t what you receive

Find yourself somewhere you want to stay
Make good memories to one day replay
Don’t stress it if there’s any kind of delay
You’re going to find that somewhere someday

A/N: I feel as if I'm at a bit of a conflict with this poem. Your thoughts on it are appreciated, as always. Do you agree with what I've written? Feel absolutely free to disagree. I'm not even sure if I concede with myself yet, if that makes any sense. Do you ever feel this way? Like you're waiting on that place, that somewhere?

The thing is, I am a strong believer in living in the current moment, and being happy and grateful where you are in life. But to contrast that, I also think that one should not give up praying, hoping and healing, or waiting for dreams to become reality in the future. They won't always become real, of course, and it definitely matters what kind of reality you're truly desiring- whether it is pleasing to God or not. But I anticipate that hope, lessons learned and perseverance will become strength when built upon day after day.

  1. Hey! Followed your trail of sweet comments back here to this lovely blog. <3 I like this poem a lot I must say. I understand the feeling, and I think it's ok to recognize a waiting place for what it is, but also to not let it stop you from living in the moment. Which, sometimes, is waiting. God tells us to wait sometimes, and I think that it can be in the painful in betweens where we actually grow the closest to him, because we're awkwardly in the middle of other things we could cling to. So I would say I agree :)

  4. EEEEEP I'm so excited that you posted again!!

    Wow...this is honestly such a great topic, and I feel like your poem captured all of that. Right now I'd say I'm caught between waiting on God and hoping for the future, but at the same time I want to live to the fullest where He has called me to be. In the NOW. But I don't know...it can be really hard sometimes too.

    Your words are absolutely lovely (as always) <33

  5. Sometimes I feel like I'm waiting on that place. As someone who easily gets caught up in the monotony of life, I tend to dream and wait for the places that I want to be at. These two ideas may seem in conflict but they don't have to be-- you can wait for the future, you can hope and dream of reaching and attaining to that one place you want to reach-- but that shouldn't be the excuse to not be living in the moment. I've been yearning to get out of school, but now that the summer season has begun here I miss all of the people I usually only interact with in the school setting, if that makes sense. But I believe as long as you keep the two in check and in balance, then you should be fine. ^.^

  7. I agree with this wholeheartedly. You write so beautifully about bitter truth of tears and pain and road bumps. You put into words my thoughts perfectly!

    My older sister told me once that we always long for something more, something better, something ELSE because we were made for heaven an nothing on earth can fill God's place.
    I do believe that we should live in the moment and be happy in our situations too. Nothing is wrong with hoping for something else, as long as it doesn't make us irritable and dissatisfied with our life, or get in the way of giving all the glory to God.
    Life is messy and complicated and sometimes so so blessed, but its also filled with longing- at least for me. There is good, and beauty, and love in this world, but I don't think anything will satisfy me completely till I get to rest in the bosom of my Father.
