I Realized by Can Yucel

All this time what you were trying to tell me
I realized when I had found myself..

Everyone has different ways to be happy
I realized when I had found my way..

Life was learnt by living only, not by reading or listening
I realized when you did not tell me what you know..

Every day was a lost day if you don’t have love in your heart
I realized why you had run after love like mad..

When the pain is so strong, no tears come from eyes, they say
I realized why you never cried..

They say making a crying one smile is more valuable
than crying with him
I realized when you had transformed my tears into a smile..

They say anybody can break your heart but
only the most loved one can hurt
I realized when you hurt me so much..

But, they say,
beloved one deserves every single drop of tear you shed
I realized when my joy had left together with tears..

It was not ‘not lying’, but, not ‘hiding the truth’
was the real gift
I realized when you had placed your hand on my heart..

Being able to say “I need you. come now” was the real power
I realized when I had said to you ‘go’ ..

Love was being able to say ‘I want you to stay’
when someone said to you ‘go’
I realized when I was told to go and I had gone..

My love for you was like a kid crying like a baby when he fell
I realized when it had grown up and had wrapped me tightly..

They say regret is not apoligizing
it is wanting to scream ‘forgive me’
I realized when I really had regretted

And, they say pride is a mask for losers for weak
hearts full of love dont have pride
I realized when I had found love in my heart..

One who wants desperately , does not wait,
only expects to be forgiven one day
I realized when I had wanted you to forgive me desperately..

Love was an endeavour,
and the endeavour was to love such a way you could never abandon it
but you could set it free..

I realized.

I’ll second that!

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

Don’t Get Attached by Can Yucel

You don’t get attached to one thing blindly

You don’t say ‘I cannot live without her’

Don’t say it, because you live.

It is not necessary to use such clichéd words


Don’t love too much for example.

If she loves you less, your heart will break

And usually, she loves you less than you love her anyway

If you don’t love too much, you won’t get hurt a great deal


If you don’t possess much, you won’t be possessed either..

You don’t possess the building you work in, the table, the telephone, your cards

Don’t even own your hands and your legs

You behave as if they are not yours.


Then if you don’t have anything, you won’t be afraid of losing.

You act as if you could live without them

For example, don’t have much furniture in your home

So you could walk clumsily around.


If you insist on having something

You will have the places where rooftops join the skies

You have the sky

Or the sun, the moon or even the stars


For example the northern star, it will be yours

You should say ‘It is mine’

If you insist on possessing something

Rainbows will be yours for example


If you want to belong to something, belong to the colours

For example to orange or to pink

Or you will belong to paradise

You have to live not possessing much


And not belonging to a great deal

You will live as if life would slip from your palms at anytime

And at the same time, it is yours forever.

You will live attached to life

By its edge

A quote by DH Lawrence

Naught is possessed, neither gold, nor land nor love, nor life, nor peace, nor even sorrow nor death, nor yet salvation. Say of nothing: It is mine. Say only: It is with me.
