In this

moment I feel like I’m fading away from what used to be my past.

As I look into what could be my future right now I’m enlightened and ready.

The peace is welcoming and I am in place where fading away from a place that never felt was right for me is okay.

I’m looking forward to being one of the good ones that will remembered once I’m gone.

But for now I will fade in and of their minds.

I needed

 This break to just stop and look at the view

For I’ve been so busy not looking around and just looking in the direction I needed to go.

I know I have to keep focus but I don’t want to miss out on anything in my life as right now in the present so much is happening,

I won’t give up and I will do more for myself because it’s me who will struggle if I do too much or too little in this opportunity I have for now.

Feeling

as if I might just burst into a million pieces.

As I somehow have nowhere safe to say what needs to be said.

The words are in my head but no matter how hard I try they won’t come out.

And if they could you wouldn’t want to hear them anyways and so I guess I’ll just keep bottling it up until I have no more room to store it all.

For these are the days of my life and maybe that’s why things feel not so bright lately.

The dullness of my life is all around no matter what corner of my life I go to nothing is lighting up the way it used too.

Sometimes

in life, you don’t know if your right side up or upside down.

And when you try to find some balance in your life.

Something somehow shifts before your eye and throws you for a curve and before you can get back up they knock you right back down.

And nothing you say or do is working out for you at this point because they chose to knock you down instead of helping you up at the end of your struggle.

You have done so much and right when you choose to move on and do better for yourself they throw you under the bus and expect you to smile and still help out with no worries in sight.

You feel that the pull is becoming too much and you know there is no way you will along this to go on and so you stand your guard and fight the good fight.

Until just come out with what they are planning to do which we all know doesn’t sound like someone who has your back at this point.

I feel

Like someone is trying to throw me off as the year comes to an end.

The anger that is boiling inside of me is out of control and I don’t know how to tame it in.

Just the thought of how they are trying to play me is unfair and unfortunately a struggle for them.

I’m not sorry at this point and I will continue on with my head held up high.

I won’t allow this sneaky move to shake me up for good.

My lord won’t allow me too and so I will pray for those who do me wrong and keep doing what is best for me.

Week 202 of Three Line Tales

cold and snowy night I walk  alone on my way home in hoping to find it warm enough.

It’s been a long day and I’m so ready to experience so much more right now as I get through the bad weather and enjoy the holidays.

I know the count down to Christmas is getting so close to the end, just one more week of work and two days and we will be all Christmas out.

I know

its not all about me.

And that somethings really are out of my control

and even though I know what is right and I try to do my best to accomplish that.

But there is always someone blocking my path and trying to get out of things that are required of them.

They don’t really care but want to have pockets that are full and belly that are satisfied but their mind and thoughts are always on the edge of unhappiness and all they can do is complain and not see the bigger picture in life.

And they will continue to miss out on the brighter things in life because they don’t realize just how lucky they are in the moment they are in now.

Week 201 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 201: a woman sitting on a Moscow subway platformphoto by Egor Vikhrev via Unsplash

spend more time in the light and less in the dark this year as Christmas is just around the corner and then the year will be almost over  in no time. 

I know that it feels so great to sit with the sun shining down on you even though now those days are few and when it happens it just something to cherish for the moment.

Today is the day I just get to relax and  not worry about anything as the day comes to a end and you head into a night of probably a mess but you hope for the best because you know that the count down to not stress about it is about to happen and you can’t wait for that moment.

Long day

 With so much to do and to learn.

But as I get it together and do my part I realize things will get done only if I take the chance to do what I need to do.

So much going on not enough time to figure it out.

Delay in every corner with no hope of it getting done on time.

No time to pull just time to keep it moving.

With no thought or hope insight.
