There Will Be Times…

There will be times….

When things didn’t turn out the way they were supposed to.
When all your dreams shattered and your hopes destroyed..

There will be times…

When you gave your best but all you get in return is disappointment.
When you always get rejected no matter how hard you tried.

There will be times..

When you watched your world fall apart before your eyes.
When you started to believe this life is unfair because things always let you down.

There will be times…

When there were no words uttered, just an empty silence filled the whole room.
When your tears were dry and all you can do was just screaming inside…

There will be times..

When you had nothing to say but “laa haula wa laa quwwata illaa billaah..”
When you hardly move forward because the dark side of the past keep pulling you back.

There will be times…

When you were at the lowest point of your life..
When you fell down on your knees, wishing there will be a miracle, an end of this sorrow..

There will be times…

When you decided to surrender and raised the white flag..
When you can feel your soul was broken in the edge of despair..

But there will be times…

When you decide to embrace all the pain and heartache…
When you learn to let go all the things that should’ve left behind…

There will be times..

When you realize, what you want is not always what you need…
When you place everything in Allah’s hands despite your own….

There will be times…

When you survive the battle and walk away with victorious smile..
When you finally overcome your fear, pain, and regrets after all those moments full of rainstorm and hurricane..

There will be times…

When you try to dust yourself off and start a new chapter of your life..
When you wipe away your last teardrops and look up to the shining sky..

There will be times…

When you believe there are far better things ahead have been waiting for you..
When you manage to build a castle from the bricks they threw at you..

There will be times…

When you start cutting yourself from toxic people in order to get back your inner peace.
When you stop investing yourself in a relationship with people who cause damage and mess with your head.

There will be times..

When you refuse to waste your time and energy to those who don’t deserve it.
When you choose to surround yourself with people who only going to lift you higher.

There will be times…

When you understand Allah does not burden a soul beyond it can bear.
When you figure out why all your prayers were never answered the way you want it to be.

There will be times…

When you learn for everything has destined for you, there must be a reason..
When you realize why Allah put you in this situation is nothing but to make you wiser and stronger..

There will be times…

When you close the door from anything that could harm and hurt you.
When you rise and shine like those pretty things in the spring, but this time, you’re untouchable.
You’re unbreakable.

And there will be times..

When you chase away those shadows with no more doubt or remorse.
When you reminisce all those silly mistakes you’ve done with a grin on your face.

Yes, there will be times..

When you wear your battle scars on the outside like a knight in shining armor.
When you look straight at your haunting past with eyes wide open, no more fears, no more tears..

And here you are…

Still standing tall, still unshakable, still unconquerable.
There’s nothing left but a fragile person who blossomed into a warrior.

The old and vulnerable you does no longer exist, now embrace the new you.
The stronger, sharper, smarter, dauntless, and fearless version of you.

And yes, that girl who’s looking at you from the other side of the mirror is you.

It’s still you. It’s always you.
