Daily Prompt: Adrift

He walked through the halls as if he had no purpose.

He seemed so confused by all the people who seemed to be in such a hurry around him.

He didn’t know why he didn’t have that drive in his life.

He didn’t seem to have anywhere to go and no idea what he really wanted either.

Daily Prompt: Unmoored

I had drifted away from things in my life for far too long

it was time to release my archer.

And stay in one spot for just a while so that I could catch my breath

and to slow down my racing mind.

So for once I could have my thoughts in order and to clear away the things

that didn’t need to be in my life and on my mind.

I needed the moments after this one to be great and profound and to not

be the same like before.

I had to find my way to a new point in my life that would be stable and reliable

because If I didn’t get it together for myself.

Things would not play out the way the need to and the ending would be less worth the wait.

Daily Prompt: Unmoored


Do I

say sorry when I’ve led you into my heart only to throw you out when my heart doesn’t want or need to be loved anymore.

Do I start to shut down because I’ve been shut out by others

Did I make a mistake by letting others into my life only to be hurt and somehow broken for a lifetime.

How do I just accept this new life when it feels so lonely and hopeless sometimes.

Should I spend my time crying for people who have long forgotten me or do I stand strong and move on and close myself off. 

Or do I just keep opening myself up and trust that not everyone is the same and this time maybe it will be different.

I guess sometimes in life taking a risk can truly be life changing.

The smile I wear on my face now is not fake anymore for it’s genuinely showing how I feel inside and outside.

Maybe I was living this thing called life the wrong way and now that my path seems brighter.

I too can feel more alive and free from the hold of keep things and people around far too long.

I surrender to the unknown for I don’t want to keep looking over my shoulder out of fear that it’s all going to go down hill soon.

I want to embrace my fears and take risks with a smile on my face and I don’t want to stop living life to it’s fullest because tomorrow may not be promised to me.

I won’t let anything hold me back and so each day I’m leaving it all on the floor for if I dont surrender myself to it all today what if tomorrow doesn’t come and I don’t want to ever regret not telling you the truth.

So accept what I have to say for at the end of the day things could end great or they could just end.

I want to know that I surrendered it all and left it all behind as I follow God to a higher place.

I want to know that I wrote my heart out and that every word that came out of my mind was received and helped in ways that are known and unknown to me.

I’m surrendering to…..


Daily Prompt: Descend

I saw you for the first time in months and the wall

I had built up to protect me from your evil ways.

Just seemed to drop as you smiled at me and slowly

walked towards me with so much purpose.

I just couldn’t stand that after all you put me through

here you were just about to destroy me again.

But, before you got a chance to get too close to me

out walks my savior tall and lean and breaks my view of you.

He starts to talk to me and it seems like thirty minutes has gone by

and by the time he walks away with my number.

You are nowhere to be seen and I finally can breath again and relax, and

go  back to the life I built all on my own without you.
