A Glimpse into My Journey

One step at a time.

We can… but we cannot…


We can carry an umbrella, but we cannot stop the rain.

We can run away from our problems, but we cannot eradicate our thoughts.

We can stand behind a curtain, but we cannot erase our shadows.


We can practice honesty, but we cannot prevent others from lying.

We can speak our minds, but we cannot make others listen.

We can change ourselves, but we cannot change others.


We can forgive, but we cannot forget.

    Yeah its very true,we can and rather we should just focus on the first part of each of your line in the poem because the latter part is unpredictable,unstoppable and definitely not in our hands! 🙂
