Together

We out shine the darkness around us

even on the hottest days when we can’t seem to cool off.

The days when everything feels against us and we don’t know who is standing by us anymore.

The words said by the people we trusted aren’t as true as they used to be.

Standing on the outside looking in is how we feel sometimes but we know the light will outshine the darkness in the end.

We know together our light is the way for us and  together we will stay strong and loyal.

I see

you even when you don’t want to be seen.

I know that you work hard because you don’t want to be in this situation for too long.

I know that you are someone who is beautiful from the inside and out and you don’t try too hard to let who you are shine to brightly.

You know that you are worthy of the time you give and the skills you have to offer.

But, still the days and weeks seem so unbearable when you are stuck in something that seems ridiculous.

Only when you realize that being seen isn’t so bad will you truly shine and out do the things you thought you couldn’t outrun.

I wasn’t

kidding anyone as I sit here trying to figure out what to say again.

Everything  feels so different and strange as if I was a way more longer than I was.

I feel out of sync with everything and everyone and I don’t know how to jump back into the things that felt frustrating in the first place.

How do I find my way out of this space that just seems to swallow me up and take away the joy that always seemed to come when I am free from the stress and people.

The life that seems good until you put the stress and decision back into the equation and everything becomes more planned and still unorganized.

Trying

to find my way again as

I question everything I love to do.

Am I going the right way or do I do something else?

Will the final answer come to me before its too late.

And I’ve already committed to something or someone.

So

Far away that it just

not on my mind right now.

I know that I only have four days  left

before reality kicks in and I go back to

doing not what I don’t love to do for doing what I love is too much to handle right now.

If only all the answers I was looking for would be answered before my world turns back into a mess at midnight on Monday.
