The water

Flows so quickly that I didn’t know if I could make it across fast enough.

And not end up falling in and still now getting to the other side.

But I took a leap of faith that I would make it and as I quickly moved across the rocks.

I just knew that things would work out and so I jumped onto land just as a big shift in the rocks was the end of my path.

And now there is no going back but that’s okay for it’s what is ahead that will lead me to the right place in the end.

Was I

to tired to see your true colors all this time.

You may be small but I can feel the many knifes your trying to throw my way.

No respect just  trying to take and take.

You want so much but right now it’s really just a struggle to get it all down in the end.

Things are becoming more clear as the problems that raise up are not mine anymore.

The peace even within the Storm is better than the storm that just doesn’t go away for good.

No direction and no hope inside for the one who could and should help won’t step up unless they have too and in the end it all comes down to the same results.

You want to complain about the ones who came before you because you think so highly of yourself but at the end of the day we carry you not the other way around.

When the mess hits the fan it is mostly because of you and you then fight back as if you have the right too.

This circle will come to an end and right now I don’t care to watch the show for I know how it ends.

To think

of warmer days and to feel the warm always on me.

So cold outside and inside is making these days very hard.

As I grow cold very quickly and time doesn’t go by as fast as I would like.

I know warmer days are coming and I am really looking forward to so much more.

Today is cold now but soon it will warm up and nothing will be in my way as I begin to explore what this world has to offer me again.

So many

changes are happening around me

and when I make a move so many other people are making it too.

To see a face that is so formal who is on a new journey like I am is so thrilling and good.

I know that there  will be bumps and set backs to come but to go on no matter how hard they push back will not set me back for I know.

Through it all I will see the light at the end of this path for I know this journey will be different than all the ones I have taken before.

I can see that this outcome will be more than I could have imagined  at the end of the day, week, month and  year.

For I trust and believe all things are possible if I just believe and trust that these good things that have happen will not stop now but will continue even when my doubt becomes too strong.

With all

the different people in the world I know that I will always stick out no matter what color I wear.

I know who I am and I am ready to show you who I am even doing my quietness moments.

I want you to know that I am quiet but I will not give up when things get tough.

I will do all things possible to help out  for I know somethings are not going to be just about me.

Today I am blue but inside I’m full of energy and so ready to explode with excitement.

For I am full of joy and peace and surrounded by calmness.

The need

To say what’s on your chest has been eating you up inside and tonight.

You finally said it and now you feel so happy and hopefully.

But you know life will throw a curve ball and all that seemed great may not always be that way.

But that doesn’t stop you for hoping things will change and work out this time.

For there are many combinations to solving and living the good way as there are only few for just living the safe away and tons of going down the path well traveled.

But now it’s time to finally step out and survive because change is necessary to go to the top.

Each door that is open will show you how to just trust your instinct and it will be true out just fine.

To think

 This could become something great once I finally get out of here.

Feels like the impossible but really it’s possible and I’m so happy that it feels just right to celebrate and to breathe.

Because no more dealing with the same stuff or people.

Everything will be new and grand and hopefully something to look forward too everyday not just once in a blue moon.
