Daily Prompt: Retrospective

Sometimes looking back on past events doesn’t help you move forward in life it just gets you thinking about the what if’s.

And the what if’s really don’t get you anywhere because you start looking back on how you could improve the life that you are current living.

And yes we all want to improve on something to make life better but, we shouldn’t beat ourselves up just because we are not in the stage in our life we want to be.

Some day what is meant to be will fall right into place and we will be blessed that life is still improving and  that we get to wake up everyday and look back only to fix the things we can.

And to let go of the things that we just aren’t meant to have.

Daily Prompt: Broken

We all feel broken sometimes when life just keeps cutting us down.

You want to feel less broken because you don’t want to feel weak.

You want all your wounds to heal up and you want to move on and smile again.

You don’t want to go through having to pretend that everything is okay when it’s not.

You don’t want to feel like because your broken, good things won’t come your way anymore.

You want to believe that you’re not alone on this pain.

That someone has your back even when you feel like your not strong enough to do it by yourself.

Just because your broken doesn’t mean that is the end to the battle your fighting right now.

Daily Prompt: Juxtapose

I think about the things that are happening now and even though I don’t want to deal with most of the mess that is happening around me right now.

I know if I compare where my life is right now to what it was before I know I’d probably pick now.

I know that things are getting crazy but, there are little blessing here and there that make me strong enough to continue on this journey called my life.

I know if I compare who I was back than to who I am today I’d probably shake my head and tell that girl she deserves so much more than what she is being offered and to know that her worth is more than just how much money she is making.

Daily Prompt: Famous

Being well-known doesn’t mean that you have to be  famous

you could just be some who does an amazing job that others are happy to spread the good word of your hard work around.

We all want  to notice in some type of way and maybe it doesn’t have to end with millions of people.

Maybe a couple hundred or fewer people know how great you are will be enough and you will feel successful and honored that someone out there is truly thinking about you.

Daily Prompt: Guilty

Am I to feel guilty that my words my offend you.

Am I to feel guilty when I tell you the truth because I don’t want to hold it in anymore.

Am I to feel guilty that I am and will be doing something you can’t do but, you have expressed that you want to do that so bad?

Am I to feel guilty when I lie because that’s what I have to do sometimes to do my job.

Am I to feel guilty because you are not happy but, in the end it’s not me that making you unhappy but the decisions you made on your own.

I don’t want to feel guilty when it all comes down to it in the end, because I’ve done what I can do so far and I just can’t do much more at this point.

Daily Prompt: Archaic

Sometimes I know I’ve seen better days and I’ve felt better on better days.

Every bit of energy I got left inside of me is trying to hold on for there is still so much left for me to do that I just can’t be discarded right now.

But, in the eyes of some I have been discarded and thrown out with the rest of their memories.

And only when someone reminds them or mentions me do they remember who I am or who I was to them.

Old and tired  here I stand looking around as the world goes by and new things replace me and yet here I am to remind you of the good old days and what those days meant to you.

Daily Prompt: Assumption

I was a fool to think you would be around when I needed you

I just assumed that when you say you would always be there for me.

I thought that was you saying more than just words to me that night but, yet again you are not around.

Always coming later when I don’t need you anymore and someone else has stepped in to help.

Time went by since the last time I saw you and it was a shock to see you reaching out to me as if you truly care.

I was busy living my life and not waiting around for you to have time for me and so I missed out on being there for you and I guess you just assumed I would always be around because that’s who I was.

The one who drops everything to help you out no matter what, but that big heart of kindness died a long time ago waiting for you and now I’ll keep missing whatever and whenever you need me for I can’t be depended on anymore.
