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.

Tonight lets

 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.

Looking up

Week 207 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 207: a man talking to a woman looking out of a barn

at you again even though I’ve tolda you this barn is not the safest place to be but every time you laugh at me as if I am being so silly.

You have some weeds in your hand today and you kind remind  me of an old wise guy but we all know you don’t like to be called that at all.

But you still give out so much advice you think you loved being around people but in fact you just wish they all leave you alone and stay away from your precious barn and only I could come by for our talks.

Week 206 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 206: children playing chess with a pair of girls in the foreground; chess friends

to be fun playing this game now its all about competitions and trying to be better than others for your school and community.

Sometimes it makes me sad to see how focused we are on the game in front of us but not really enjoying the things that are going on around us.

I know one day things in life will be more serious so I dont want to miss out on the fun and silly things so today will be my last day playing this game for competition for I want to play it for fun with you.

There is

 Always two ways to go and the possibility that you could pick the right one is 50/50.

But today you can relax for you know which path to take on this run.

And maybe when the time comes to choose the path that will lead you to new things.

You will be ready to make the right decision and have that feeling inside that you did the right thing.

You never seem to know when that path will come up so it’s best to know what you want and don’t want in your life so that the red flags are seen sooner rather than later.

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.

I tried

to wait for you a little longer.

But, the wind started to pick up and I had to leave and as I walked away I tried to text you again.

But still, no reply and I just don’t understand how you didn’t pick up as today was the day you choose to meet up with me.

Now not only was my time wasted out in the cold it just sucks for any day now I will be leaving and this reality we had together is slowly coming to end.

I just hope you reach out to me before I get even farther away from you and the time it will take for me to come back will be too long.

That even you may move on and forget about me and I’m hoping you don’t forget me and that our future will still be something that can happen and not just some fantasy we came up with one long cold night.

To beat

alina-lobanova-JdIctutgMBA-unsplashPhoto by Alina Lobanova on Unsplash

the cold I had to put on my fur and have my lantern  guide the way as I travel back to my home on this almost dark night.

This winter has barely arrived and already it is cold and warm than back to cold and frankly I have had enough and I just want to cuddle up and not be bother with the cold air form outside.

But tonight I have to  acknowledge all that is going on around me for I have so much to look for and to look forward too.

For the winter has delivered me something to be grateful for.

Just another

pedram-normohamadian-m4eG_7i2k3s-unsplashPhoto by Pedram Normohamadian on Unsplash

day in the snow trying to make it to the car after walking through it all.

When I hear someone call my name and up I look to see who it could be and in hope they are not  too far away for it is quite cold out here today.

And I rather be inside with a hot drink and a blanket as I have done all my errands and now I can enjoy what’s left of this snow day for me.

And I do hope the snow doesn’t come back around anytime too soon as I am okay with the cold but the snow is where I draw the line unless it keeps me from going to work.
