I feel

a little broken lately

as my body grows weak.

And my legs hurt the most

as I stand up all day long moving forward and backward.

Not getting much of a break for I have so much to do and it all must be done.

I know that the day will go by quickly and I will hopefully get it all together in no time for I’m so ready to do more than I thought was possible.

It’s time to pick up my broken pieces and let them float away and grow new pieces along the way as I expand my life like never before.

I will take this chance and I will run with it for I know I am ready for a challenge and ready to get out of my comfort zone and embrace new things and see and meet new people too.

Music from

three line tales, week 197: vinyl albums in a record shop, bowie, the cure, fleetwood mac, joy division

photo by Yanko Peyankov via Unsplash

the past sometimes is the best for there may be this sound that you don’t hear today in the things that you like now.

To hear a song that was before my time or a childhood favorite just brings back some great memories and makes me think of how far music has come and that no matter how much time passes by the hits will always be around.

Music isn’t just something that is around it’s life changing and just something that I crave not just for today but always and it just lifts me up another level in my life.

That dark

Three Line Tales, Week 196

photo by Never Krcmarek via Unsplash

night started a little sooner than I expected but as daylight saving has arrived the darkness will be coming more sooner than later.

The orange moon shined so brightly as halloween night had came and gone with a storm no one wanted but, it took over and all the kids surely ran away.

With maybe not as much candy in there bags but it was better to be safe that night as the wind picked up and the air turned cripes.

Trees and leaves won’t the only things blow around that night as people were still out and about on a night so unique like this.

That place

used to be more than just a place where everyone tags there street art or they love, it was a place where we could all get away and all feel equal for we were all there for the same reasons.

To find ourselves in a world that wants to put us in certain boxes and once your in there is no getting out again.

We wanted to feel free but safe too and to be able to express whatever emotion was feeling heavy on our shoulders at the time, we wanted to be able to lean on each other forever.

The storm

Week 192 of Three Line Tales

 came but it didn’t destroy anything but it did take away all the doubt I felt that day.

And in its place, it gave me the courage to take a step towards my dreams and to not fall back when I became a little afraid that I would fail.

For the rainbow shining in the sky is a reminder that even though the toughest storms of my life I will come out on the other side better than before.

I so

need to get away and relax by the pool again before the weather really starts to get cold again.

I don’t want to face the mess that has been placed in front of me right now but what am I to do when all I want to do is get out of this place.

With no detection that I am about to go and not come back again, I want to be relaxed all the time and not stressing out to the maximum level anymore for there is so much more for me to live for now in the year 2019.

four of us and the chances to get the ball first is in our favorite but what chance it will be me is always on my mind  when we play this game and try to make the best of the days as the weather slowly changes.

We are ready to shine and do our best to get the ball and win in this game we simply play to have a good time.

For once we are home its all about homework and learning and the fun goes out the window and we always wish for more time and energy to get it done.

Photo sometimes life is black and white

And the moments in your life is more dark than light.

And you start to wonder how can you change the way things are going when you don’t know the outcome of it all.

But you know you don’t want to give up and forget there is more to life than what is happening right now.

LOOKING UP

Week 190 of Three Line Tales

tltweek190

to what I can expect will be a long way up and just too many steps for me to take after a long day at work.

For all I looked forward to was a good weekend out and away from all the drama that has been surrounding me all week long.

Just a moment to just  relax but, I know if I just walk up those steps the feeling of being free and just knowing I made it  this far will be so rewarding at the end of the day and that nothing can bring me down for they can’t reach me tonight.
