Every

Corner I turn I seem to be faced with the same crap before and after all this time nothing has changed.

It’s like looking in the mirror and expecting yourself to smile back even though you are not in the mood to smile.

You try your best to get through it all but you just can’t seem to keep down the anger anymore.

And you know that it’s not fair for you to be doing it all.

And the ones doing little to nothing always feeling like they are carrying the load that you been pulling along for far too long.

Will your day come, you hope it does soon too because you can’t take it anymore and the clock clicks on for you today.

photo made me stop that day when I was just walking down the road.

It was like I hadn’t seen something so beautiful in so long since I’ve been just keeping my head to the ground and just been trying to get things done with no regret.

I just wanted to show another side to beauty as the sun goes down and the stores close up and the bars open up for some entertainment or just for people to come and let off some stream from a long day that has been running them through it all.

They didn’t expect Monday to be so hard but they hoped things would look up at the end of the day so that this week didn’t just completely burn out on them before it even started.

They really needed some good luck right now as they feared that things were once again turning into a mess.

I

want to say my patience is not at its limit.

But, I know that each day that I stay the more I’m losing more of me.

I’m done complaining and I’m ready to change and walk away from the frustration.

I’m ready to enjoy the good weather no matter how hard the wind blows.

I will keep walking and maybe when it blows too hard I’ll just let it carry me to better destination.

And when I arrive I will welcome everyone and everything because I will be grateful for this new chance at the peace I’ve been looking for.

I will live and try to judge less and I will help and smile and I will choose to let out my light for I know to let the darkness.

from inside of me does more harm than good even if it feels good at the time because regret will come back and bite me.

Right now

I am so vulnerable that I just want to cry
as life throws so many demands my way.

I know that I have to make a decision soon

for later is not something I want to think about. 

I just have so much high hopes that I will get out

of this place and find a better place for me.

But, right now the present feels just as lost as me 

with no hope or understanding that everything will work out. 

So many have it together and it is just me that needs to get through all that 

is being thrown my way when all I want to do is hide away but I know running or hiding is not going to solve the problem. 

I must start making more decisions for I know my life is limited and tomorrow is granted for anyone. 

So today I will accept being vulnerable and being undecisive but, I know over time I will have to step out and make something of the situation but right now I just want to rest.

Being so

vulnerable right now feels like my world has 

just shifted right from under me and the changes happening  hurt so much.
