The Things That Got Away

Maybe the next time around, we'll be better...

Sometimes we have to face the decisions we make in life.
Sometimes we don't even know if it'll be the right one.
So how will we know?
You don't, not until you make one then see how it goes.
Not every decision, though, leads to the ending we want..
Then there'll be regrets...
What if?
What if?
What if I didn't do it?
What if I'd just done it?

What if I only followed my heart?
What will happen then?
Would I be happy?
Or would it be the same?

Haunting, repeating questions.

Then we'd try to set things straight
the second time around.
Look back but move forward.
The next time I'll do it right.
Then maybe I'll be happy...
Then maybe I won't be haunted by what if's...
Next time, I promise....

But then, what happens if next time never comes?

Sometimes, things just happen...
Whether they make reasons for you or not...

This is Katy Perry's video of her song:
"The One That Got Away"
This song just moved that lonely girl inside of me
and made me write another thought.
Honestly though, I get this really sad feeling whenever I hear this song.
Still, I liked it ^_^

  1. nice lyrics, thanks for sharing... happy 2012. Yahweh bless.

  2. i agree with this "Sometimes, things just happen...Whether they make reasons for you or not..."

    there are things that we don't understand so we just need to have faith and trust GOD.

  3. Thanks for sharing. I wish you all the best too for 2012.

    Keep smiling and be merry. Happy Happy New Year to you.

  4. Waht if? that is a common question after sometime.We keep wondering what would happy if we do the things we like to do but ended up not.Happy New year!

  5. That's what my perception when I wasn't yet converted to the true Church of God. My life is always full of "ifs" Now, I'm 31 years in the said Church, I knew fully well where did I come from, why I was here, and where am I going to go after this life? In short, I'm spiritually educated as I am what I am. Everything that comes to your life has a purpose. It does not exist for nothing. Even every strand of our hair is numbered. Take note for that!

    Since you're here on this earth, make the best out of your life. Don't wait for tomorrow for it will never come. Don't get stuck at the "bahala na" Filipino attitude. Be responsible for all your doings, for you'll be accountable to them when time comes!

  7. I love this song! :) Sometimes there are regrets, the "what ifs" in life. It hurts but we have to be brave and move on.

    Happy New Year Mau! ^__^ I hope 2012 will be a year full of love, happiness and exciting adventures for you. :)

  8. though i am not a Katty Perry's fan,i got emotional when i first heard and saw the video...

    u really cannot know how ur decisions would if i decided on one thing i try not to regret or if i do regret it, just accept the consequence...

  9. life will always have what ifs... and will, most of the time be answered with "damn if you do, damn it you don't..."

    may you have a better year this time... stay awesome!

  10. i admire people who can come up with meaningful words and put them together in a poem, eventhough there's no rhyme! have a great year ahead!

  11. I was touched by those words. Great indeed. Dont let your "what ifs" take your courage to face life. I just wish you all the best for 2012. Happy new year!

  12. Awwww, guys, thank you for all your wonderful comments... it really touched my heart. And I have to thank Filipino Bloggers Worldwide page for that too. Indeed, my new year just got happier... ^_^

  13. thanks for sharing, loved the lyrics!

  14. Grabe! Tinamaan akos a lyrics. Ang dami ko rin kasing what if ... minsan yung what if ko is what if hindi ko na lang ginawa ang isang bagay pero alam ko everything happens for a reason. DL ko tong song na to bukas.
