DARKEST DAYS

Days are just like people. as they can’t all be perfect but they always try.   And just like us they often fail. They push and pull and strive for more.   Blindly acknowledging the many closed doors.   But when we step back we begin to see that there’s so much more then what appears to be.   The world we live in is colorful and bright. but you can’t embrace the golden ray of su...

HAND TO HOLD

My whole life I’ve been closed. Lost. Uncertain. And confused. Blanketed by layers. Hidden from them all. My life was different. What you saw wasn’t me. A facade. An illusion. A blanketed ghost. But there was no truth to be found from my layers. Happy and strong were lies. Told not only to you. But to me as well. The real truth was frightening. I was alone. I was a lie. A sham. Ready to crum...

HIDDEN IN SHAME

I’ve hidden in shame for years and I wonder have you too? So much time wasted chasing something that wasn’t real. So much time wasted hiding myself. Sought-after perfection kept me in the dark but for once in my life I see the light. We’re not meant to be perfect. We’re not meant to judge. We’re only meant to be our best self. So I no longer hide all the pieces that make me real. This is me I’m no...

A BETTER ME

A better me is coming. One who’s not afraid to be whole. Not afraid of the judgments, the naysayers or the hecklers in the crowd. One who loves freely, laughs when it feels right and cries whenever the tears shall fall. A better me is coming and I’m no longer scared. For I’ll be the one growing and leaving the past behind. But I fear that we’ve all been here before. Some of us have taken the chanc...

BLESSINGS FOUND IN THE STORM

Every time you’ve felt the reason that makes you want to run, just stop for a moment and think of how far you’ve come.   There’s always a blessing in the storm. Every heartbreak, every no, every ending brought you here. Every goodbye brought a lesson. Every heartbreak taught you how to love. Every ending tore your heart open so that you could learn the lesson of letting go. Every time you...

THE SUN AND THE MOON

Who broke you and left you in such a way, that the sun never rises and the moon always stays? Who stole your smile and left you so sad? Who took your voice and muted it all, that the only thing left has become half-muttered sounds? But I can still see you and see through your shell. Even the pieces you hide from yourself. I see you smiling and running a muck. I see you open and fearless as f**k. Y...

BE STILL, MY LOVE

Be still my love for there’s no place to be. You mustn’t rush or hurry about for the best will come you’ll see. Wind in your hair sunlight shining through. So much more then just glimpses of you. Soak it all in and sigh it all out. For your time is coming and there is no doubt. A love like no other, simple and pure. One to forget the broken heart from before. Stay still my love. Don’t rush. For wh...
