This beautifully written poem was chosen as BEST ENTRY for a November 10th Poetry Challenge with the theme, "If you could freeze time in one moment of your life, what would it be?"
The time when I had my heart broken, I thought it was indelible. It became a part of me that would never be forgotten - How I crumpled, How I stooped, How I desperately tried to heal... Yet time in its own pace, has its own way to repay all the tears, all the pain, all the dark nights, they crafted me like a sculpture. If time would ever be frozen, I'd choose now. How I healed, how I grew, how I bloomed like a flower, they all mean a lot now. I choose now, the happier, the better version of myself with the right person in my heart, I will keep this thing indelible. After all, love makes time stand still. © Lisa L. Penaflor
