Daily Prompt: Costume

You wear your uniform like a costume

hiding behind it the real you for you want to fit in.

You are afraid to be your true self because what if you come cross too weird or normal

You want to stand out but only if it’s in a  good way.

You want to be someone everyone likes and if they don’t like you than you feel like you failed.

The mistake was hiding who you truly are is wrong for you are amazing even if they all dislike you, there will be someone out there that chooses to like you for you and not because everyone else says your horrible.

Take off the costume and just be you for you only live once and at the end of the day those people who hate you won’t always be around and who really cares about what they think.

While they are full of hate and you are full of light and love and you shine that on them every time at the end the results will look good for you and well you can’t save them all.

Daily Prompt: Suspicious

I’m suspicious of your actions towards me on this day of all days, I’m just trying to get through this day because it’s just  another day of work for me.

You are smiling too much for me right now and I just want to get this over with for I’m uncomfortable in your presence.

You keep trying to  talk more to me but, right now I just want to escape from this moment.

If only I could go back in time and make sure this moment never happened because I just can’t deal with you right now.

I want to be safe in this bubble I have made for myself and I really just don’t want to deal with you right now.

I keep looking at the time just wishing away this moment and hope for something better.

Oh how I love thou not just on this day called Valentine’s day but, everyday that I’ve known thou.

The way thou smiles at me everyday lights up my heart and warms me on cold days, thou words are always so sweet and kind to me.

I love to love thou because at the end of the day I know where we stand and there is no moment that I doubt thou love for me.

Just another

day to feel like I’m breaking all over again.

The strength I thought I had gained feels like a big wave has crashed into it and I’m left with nothing but wet sand.

The wall my rock seems to be gone and everything just feels like a down high battle.

Nothing shines in this place anymore and alone I stand watching all the things I love wash away from me.

I try to hold on to something but, without the things and people I love what is there left for me now.

Everything gone and destroyed and all that is once so pure and bright is now so dirty and dark.

The light I took for granted is now gone and the darkness that I never wanted to welcome in is now the place I call my home.

Gone are the good days and now the bad days and moments show through every step and move I make.

I am the black cat you avoid on those sunny days that you take a walk outside, you smile and take in nature.

But, the moment you see me you cross the street and walk as fast as you possibly can just to avoid catching the bad luck that follows me around.

Daily Prompt: Lecture

I don’t want to be lectured on the things I know I’m not doing right or that I need to get better at.

I just want to focus on the now and right now I’m not in the mood to improve but, I know that I’m good at what I’m doing.

Yes, the time for improvement will come but, I’m just not in the mood for I’m feeling overworked and I’m already pushing myself past the limits that I have just to be as good as I am now.

I sit here trying to focus on other things but, the fun and the energy I need to just relax and enjoy these little things in life.

Seems to be ripped from my mind as I get my head right for work, the little things seem to be collecting dust in the corner of my life and sometimes I forget what it felt like to just be able to relax and breath without the feeling of rushing and stressing.

I want the silent for the talking is becoming too much for me and I don’t want to be reminded about the things I’ve accomplished because now I kind of regret it.
