Daily Prompt: Courage

Take the first step of courage and make the choice to not let anyone run your life but you. 

I know you want it all but, what are you worth losing just to claim the end result of feeling empty. 

I give you the courage to speak your mind and do what your suppose to do and not let all these people drag you down.

I know you are in depend right now but, have the courage to say no and move on without the guilt or regret of feeling bad because you too know your limits. 

This place won’t break you even when you feel like you are about to explode because, they are pulling you in so many directions. 

That step of courage isn’t just about you finding yourself again but, appreciated this life that God granted for you. 

Every day you live for him and not for them because, when it’s your time to go will they cry as hard or will they easily just replace you. 

You know this move is the right one and at the end of the day you just have to put yourself first because, you are no good to anyone if you are tired and physically can’t do anymore now if it was even possible.

Daily Prompt: Rube

He grew up in the country and well he enjoyed the life he lived but, he wanted to see more and be more too. 

He set off to the big city to see the many things that it had to offer him, he didn’t know that his country accent would make people look down on him and call him names like rube. 

He was strong and the walls that had always be up to protect him from the bullies back home, helped him not let them get to him now. 

He found what he loved to do and was good at it too, he wrote songs and stories and became a big success. 

He didn’t go and rub it in the faces of the people who had treated him wrong, he lived his life being kind and loving the people who treated  him bad. 

He knew what they said was not true and that he would make it for he had the talent and he had the faith and his heart was full of love and kindness. 

He knew before they called him names that he was different and unique in his own way and, he knew that the things that made him stand out would help him win in the end. 

He gave back to the people who believed in him and wish the people who didn’t nothing be good luck for he hoped they would change their ways so they too could enjoy the things they love just a little more.

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.

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.

Daily Prompt: Conjure

I wish I could conjure up the strength to just walk away and not worry about the future.

But, that’s just not how this world works and so all I can do is wish for things to be better because right now I have no control over some of these things that are happening right now.

I wish I could conjure up something to make this moment not suck so much but, no matter how hard I try things just don’t seem possible to workout.

My head pounds as it gets closer to the time to go do what I rather now do, I close my eyes and I pray that things get better and for a moment it feels good and my hope rises up again.

Until later on, the storm hits and I’m knocked on my ass and the situation stresses me out and I sit there saying a silent prayer that things won’t always be this way for I’m strong but sooner or later I will fall down weakened by the pain.

Will today be the day or will it be tomorrow, I guess I will not know until that day and moment comes and I finally just end up truly walking away because truly losing myself is not worth this pain.

Daily Prompt: Insist

I insist you stop right now and close your mouth because the things that are about to come out will not make your life better.

The more you think you are better than person helping you find something in your favorite store.

Is the moment you realize you may want to stop and think about where or how you got to this place.

The place of rudeness and disrespect to a stranger that didn’t deserve the hate when all they wanted to do was do their job and do it well.

Maybe one day we will respect one another and accept that sometimes things take longer to get done than when you expected.

Nothing in life is guaranteed so why do we demand so much when we know that tomorrow or the next five minutes are not guaranteed.
