Exposed To Experience Life

I see what I know,
From being exposed to experience life!
Curious and adventurous.
No pain did I feel to become healed,
Did not do this to leave it unnoticed.

And no steps did I take to invite heartbreak,
Can I accuse anyone to blame consciously.
I see what I know,
From being exposed to experience life!

And had I not chosen,
The path upon which I still walk today...
To do it at times with a stubborn indifference,
Every mistake I had ever made...
Would have someone else's name attached to it.

I've learned that love is not blind or an experiment.
And anyone I have loved with love to find,
Made my life to live more enhanced.
And I could not have ever admitted that,
If love that I still have and continues to grow...
Had been taken away from me to leave me bitter.

And bitterness did make attempts to visit me,
But too much about love I knew to rid bitterness.
Love comes to go and not to claim indefinitely.
And with a knowing of this,
My happiness flourishes from right where it is.
No longer am I deluded by who has it to give.

I see what I know,
From being exposed to experience life.
Curious and adventurous with no emotion left detached.
Since no pain did I feel to become healed,
Did not do this to leave it unnoticed without depth.
And no steps did I take to invite heartbreak with tears wept,
Can I accuse anyone to blame consciously.
I hope what I have and continue to give,
Inspires.

Afterall...
No one who has loved me to leave me with it given,
Have I stopped to feel ungrateful or unmotivated.
And if I had been blinded by love...
By now I would have awakened,
To not know what it was to appreciate having it.
