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.

To think

 This could become something great once I finally get out of here.

Feels like the impossible but really it’s possible and I’m so happy that it feels just right to celebrate and to breathe.

Because no more dealing with the same stuff or people.

Everything will be new and grand and hopefully something to look forward too everyday not just once in a blue moon.

 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 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.

Your presents

 Carries me through the hardest moments of my day.

And makes me feel like I don’t have to take everything to heart.

Your presents hypes me up and so when the storm looks bad, I know no matter what I will still come out on the other side.

No more doubt when I feel your presents for I know I can do so much more when you are around.

I know I can make it work in the end because I know you will believe in me no matter what I do or say.

For you will always forgive me and you will never forget me.

Today will be great because of you and the possibility of tomorrow will be because of you too.

I always

was afraid to take the leap in life that would get me to the other side

because I  was afraid I would fall and get hurt in the process.

But being here today and taking the leap near this beautiful waterfall has made me not be afraid anymore.

Because sometimes it is better and more at peace on the other side as along as I stay true to myself.

These leaps will happen more often and I won’t be afraid to take  them and deal with the outcome later on.
