Do what extent am I supposed to be?

I often ask myself this question when my world comes crumbling down, which in my "perfect world" it is always. Miss judged and understood by everyone around me, I ask myself if I really want to be understood. Putting these thoughts on paper stimulate tears to run down my face, being the burden I feared… Continue reading Do what extent am I supposed to be?

Quiet

Needing to be understood, she did the impossible, Hoping to be heard, she gathered the strength to talk Wanna talk? they all love to say, but when she finally speaks, little do they take in Understanding we are all not the same is the only energy she can feed on Understanding that things are the way… Continue reading Quiet

Shadow

They say to tell them when the breaking point draws near, But are they ready to listen to what has to be said. Are they strong enough to comprehend the battle inside my brain? Are they empathic enough to provide the connection to stop my tears? Is it a shoulder to cry on that I… Continue reading Shadow

We are perfect

As I watch the sun rise, I am reminded my existence is purposeful. I felt like I needed to say that, for those who are troubled by they inner thoughts telling them they will not make it.

Today

This morning she rose, before the sun's rays could be exposed. Today she decided that she would not sell herself short, That she would not allow her appearance to call the shots.

Sometimes I wake up feeling blue, At times I feel like Imma lose, In all those moments, tears rush to my eye balls fighting to escape, In every instance, I grow weary of the future that lies ahead.

Spirit

I was told to write to You, to tell you about my worries and thoughts, I was told to reach out to You, to ask for guidance in this time I am most lost. Truth is I shy away in moments like this, I don't know how to tell You that I am not okay… Continue reading Spirit

Odds

The sense of helplessness, the eternal wonder, wonder of what life holds, what is meant and not meant to exist. Fear of lack of growth fills her head, the vulnerability of surrender cracks her soul, Her so brave, tenacity so great hidden like the mysteries of our physical beings. If only endurance, hope and perseverance… Continue reading Odds

Weight

I hoped I would not relapse, That I would keep smiling. See I do love my life, Appreciate every hurdle I face, But what I hate, Is being reminded of faith or being told its fate. I hoped I would be okay by now, At peace with deep within, Being the pillar I wished they… Continue reading Weight

Father

I know you are up there somewhere, In your beautiful realm watching me from above. Today hasn't been the best day, Being tested; stupid rules, anxiety at its peak, expectations to fulfill. Sometimes I wish You could just take me away, Fulfilling my heart with joy and peace - the great escape. I want to… Continue reading Father
