Daily Prompt: Partake

You watched them get married and you partook in feeling the joy they had that day.

You lived through life partaking in a lot of joy and pain and you choose to get through it all because, in the end, it helped you.

Become the person you are today which is awesome, caring, loving, kind and so much more than you ever thought you could become.

Why

is something I ask myself a lot lately like why are people so ignorant

why are they always so nasty and impatient.

and why do I care so much

Why do I not care anymore and why are things so much more peaceful now

No drama to care about

Why people depend on you so much and just depend that if you are reliable that you will drop everything for them.

I may be reliable but, I’m not about to give up my freedom and peace for you.

Why am I running away and why am I laughing and why am I moving up to better things.

And, why are you still looking towards me for help when I have finally moved on and no longer under your control.

I have to put my foot down and tell you that I’m not about to be pushed around anymore and that’s why I’m gone.

Like a ghost, I will haunt you now and then just to show you that the way you treat others isn’t’ right and hope you will get the message right.

I thought

this was the moment I would step up and things would amount to something.

But, things still seem the same even though some charges have happened.

The stuff in the past seems to come back and be more painful than before.

What was I thinking to believe that the impossible was so possible for me, so much doubt and so little time to change and realize I am more than what I think I am now.

It’s getting to be where the little hope that is coming my way is healing the old and new wounds, which is letting me see the light and the truth.

I thought

I knew what I needed and the answer to my question just seemed to fall into place.

It felt right and peaceful

But, over time it all came so clear that this just wasn’t the answer I needed or wanted.

Too much pain and too much time seemed to be wasted here and I just couldn’t accept that this was my life.

The answers that I now seek to seem so lost and not coming anytime soon and I guess I have to accept that and expect something else to happen.

The worst moments just don’t seem to be getting any better for me right now, It’s like one kick just follows another.

Until I’m face down in the dirt and there always no one to lean out a hand and help me back up.

For they are on the ground taking their own kicks from the people who are always cruel and seem to have no regards for anyone but themselves.

Daily Prompt: Authentic

The letter said it was by you but the words just didn’t seem like something you would say and so I doubted it.

And when I mention the letter to you, you acted like you had no clue what I was talking about.

Like writing a letter to me just would be pointless and so I let it go, knowing then those words were not yours and I didn’t know if I wanted to know who truly wrote them.

Because that would prove to me that you weren’t the one I needed to be around right now.
