To think

of warmer days and to feel the warm always on me.

So cold outside and inside is making these days very hard.

As I grow cold very quickly and time doesn’t go by as fast as I would like.

I know warmer days are coming and I am really looking forward to so much more.

Today is cold now but soon it will warm up and nothing will be in my way as I begin to explore what this world has to offer me again.

So many

changes are happening around me

and when I make a move so many other people are making it too.

To see a face that is so formal who is on a new journey like I am is so thrilling and good.

I know that there  will be bumps and set backs to come but to go on no matter how hard they push back will not set me back for I know.

Through it all I will see the light at the end of this path for I know this journey will be different than all the ones I have taken before.

I can see that this outcome will be more than I could have imagined  at the end of the day, week, month and  year.

For I trust and believe all things are possible if I just believe and trust that these good things that have happen will not stop now but will continue even when my doubt becomes too strong.

The need

To say what’s on your chest has been eating you up inside and tonight.

You finally said it and now you feel so happy and hopefully.

But you know life will throw a curve ball and all that seemed great may not always be that way.

But that doesn’t stop you for hoping things will change and work out this time.

For there are many combinations to solving and living the good way as there are only few for just living the safe away and tons of going down the path well traveled.

But now it’s time to finally step out and survive because change is necessary to go to the top.

Each door that is open will show you how to just trust your instinct and it will be true out just fine.

 Cold out as I smile for the picture.

You would think I would know with all the winter gear I’m wearing.

But really I just wanted to show off my new outfit and lipstick.

To be the center of attention that day felt great.

For I’m reality fitting in feels like a challenge and that type of battle I just can’t shake.

I want to be me but not be alone when I know I’m with getting to know.

Maybe today someone will start with me but I will walk around and she see who reacts to me in a good vibe and then let them decide whatever it is now.

Oh how

 My heart ache as a old chapter of my life comes to an end.

And a new one begins my nerves are shoot and I feel like a kid on the first day of school.

Excited to see old faces but hoping to see new ones too.

Trying to hold it together as everything that is happening is only a day away.

And yet nothing is going as plan and you feel your procrastination is catching up to you.

And for the first time you don’t want to fuck things up for you want to improve things not ruin them.

 Celebrate the new changes that are coming our way.

With something sweet and drink something that will comment it.

For it’s time to embrace the change and look forward to it for once for this is my time to shine.

No more thinking too much about things I can’t control or wishing someone would see what I see.

Maybe than they would know it’s not just what’s going on around them but some what their doing too.

I don’t

 Know if I’m ready for this next step in my life.

But it’s about to happen and the butterflies inside me are so excited and nervous all at the same time.

That I wonder what will happen or become of me.

The time for the day is slowly but approaching and I still have so many questions.

Like where will I go and what time and is this going to be too hard.

Is it going to be better than the experience I am dealing with right now.

And how long before this all I will be doing.

I guess right now I will never know until they get back to me but the count down has started.

Will I

Ever be someone’s number 2 because I would hope they would put the lord before me.

For he leads and I will help on the side with carrying and helping get back up when you fall.

I will listen as you pour your soul and heart out to our lord.

I won’t be mad about being second because I know at the end we all win as long as we let him guide and protect us.

I hope today will be the start of something new and every day and night we grow closer.

But in the end let’s not be self centered and think only about ourselves because at the end of the day we aren’t completely in control.

We must be patient when things seem impossible because we know that’s what his all about.

So one day when you’re ready I will be there with you every step of the way.

So before

 I go today

I want you to know.

It’s been a struggle for me

To find the right words to express.

How much I care for you.

So many unsent text messages because I just didn’t know what you needed to hear.

And now there is still no words that feel good enough because you are too unique for simple words.

That won’t show you how much I care and that this isn’t just another friendship to me.

For I see you like family and you are important and I always want to check up on you and hope you well for I know you will do the same.
