Unspoken Teachings

Everything I know right now were taught to me by different people in my life.

But not a single one of them were said to me out loud.

All were said in the tiny fidgets of their eyes,

The smallest shift in their moods,

The silence of their heartbeats,

The stories that rolled off their tongue

They never said any of their teachings. They showed it to me

Accidentally

Unknowingly

Unwillingly.

One,

Family.

Your family is not those people whose blood runs through your veins

But of those people whose pieces of you you’ve given to.

And until now those pieces are not broken.

Maybe slightly cracked, bent, crumpled

But not broken.

Because we can’t avoid a little bump here and then

But we can avoid a push off a 100 story building.

Two,

Love.

It is not for the people who have fallen into the clutches of control.

Because love, is a free anything.

A free soldier who does not take orders,

A free dancer who dance spontaneously,

Love is unpredictable.

Unpredictable in the sense you will never know where they will go:

Left

Right

Front

Backwards

In a circle

Love is unpredictable.

Will Love stop? Or go on?

Skip or run?

Walk or fall?

Three,

This one I learned through my own ways.

I learned not to be scared of the monsters in the dark

Or under the bed

Or in my closet

But I should be wary of the monsters at the end of the rainbow.Unspoken

Three,

This one I learned through my own ways.

I learned not to be scared of the monsters in the dark

Or under the bed

Or in my closet

But I should be wary of the monsters at the end of the rainbow.
