What I learned from life


Sara is a creative writer and her vision is to spread Happiness, love and Optimistic thoughts.


I don't want to wind up this relationship right now

But... why...???

I want to give him another chance to keep it alive...one more time..

But... nothing is similar among you people

I will convince him

But...he is not ready to understand

I will rectify my mistakes..not his

But....this is just wastage of time and your life

I once promised him to be loyal to him till my last breath

But....it's superfluous..

I have spent some memorable time with him..how can I leave him??

But..... you think will he be able to realize?

I don't want to hide and find escape anywhere

But.....life will merely give you another chance to get away from him

I have been given this life to make it heaven not hell

But...your life is nothing but mess..what do you think about life?

I have experienced it..Life is a long journey where you try to find peace continuously while facing different obstacles

But....did you find peace?

I felt overwhelmed with gratitude whenever I saw my children...my family!

But....vindicate your life's statement keeping in view your personality

I believe that's my perspective to look 'who I am' and 'what's missing in my life'..

But...think about yourself...

I am not selfish.... history shows only those who think for others first can mark their names

But....it's reality....time is not going to wait for you

I do have strength to withstand whatever difficulties coming in my way..I will never give up and will find peace ultimately

But....think...it's hard to live with regrets

I don't want to spend my entire life in the shadows of regrets.. I am positive.. I will sort out all our differences..

Deep breath... everything is going to be alright!!

Yes!.. Everything will be fine soon unless and until you are determined to find joy, peace and love in your relationships.

Dana Tate.. Although it's always a tough decision in any relationship...when to save it and when let it go... But the fact is we always try save our precious relationships no matter what.

Dana Tate from LOS ANGELES on September 10, 2019:


Trying to discern when to stay or, when to go is hard when you've spent time in a relationship that was once beautiful. I always hoped we were just going through a rough patch and sometimes that was the case, but most of the time, that was someone in my life only for a season.

Thanks a lot for liking my poem

Mark Tulin from Ventura, California on September 03, 2019:

A beautiful depiction of the dilemma in many of our relationships--should I stay or should I go.

SARA (author) from Islamabad on September 01, 2019:

Under constant stress, sometimes we wanted to end up the relationship. We should give some space and time. We just need a little patience and strength to handle those problems in life.

Relationships are always tricky and need constant work, however, it's also important to know when to move forward if things do not work out. Your poem highlighted this for me perfectly. Thank you for sharing.
