i never knew

flowers look like stars in night sky
Photo by Samia Kassam

he was already present in my life
yet i never knew

but all at once
nights filled up with flowers
like a sprinkling of stars

new paths had opened up
to welcome me
yet i never knew

i was still finding my way
out of the road i tirelessly walked on
believing it would lead
to a destination

but life is not about reaching somewhere
or finding some one

i never knew
that life is only change

through those minor shudders
shocks and temblors,
unexpected tranquility

with those who adore
deceivers, the betrayers

made me who i am
led me where i am

i never knew

i’m taking a moment
if i hadn’t realised your role
if i didn’t recognise the way

whether you hurt me
uplifted me
guided me,

i am grateful

looking back,
it was grace
i never knew
that i grew


I was left wondering what music to share with this post, and just now my brother sent me such a wonderful clip (old but gold) – Just chill and enjoy ❣

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this creation!

    We like it all, but the first two lines…how powerful.

    All good wishes,



    1. My favorite lines too, in fact you will be surprised to know I got inspiration for the first two lines from a light comedy/family show I was watching. And from there, somehow all the rest of the words flowed beautifully ❣
