I know

I’m about to cause a storm and everything I am about to destroy may not accept that their life is about to change for the better. 

Everything around you is something you think will be there tomorrow and, maybe it will but will you be there too. 

Life can seem like you’ve been around for a long time but, then when you make a list of what you still want to do. 

It’s long and you begin to wonder what the hell you been doing in the first place. 

You want more and right now that possibility could be possible but, the real question is what is stopping you from doing what you love right now?

When this year is over will you feel completely satisfied with the things you’ve done and said or will you be disappointed.

There’s

something inside of me that is awakening this morning and it feels so right and it feels like home.

I’m on my way to seeing the bigger picture of who I’m suppose to be, I’ve thrown away all the things that made me doubt myself and made me crawl into the hole of darkness.

The darkness that seemed to control my life for so long that I couldn’t see the people who care for me.

But, that darkness doesn’t exist in my present as the light out shines everyone who doesn’t know the real me.

You see I used to be so broken that the pieces that were there won’t enough to keep me going and, as I fought to keep up this wall that kept the real me hidden.

It was failing so bad that pretending wasn’t option for me anymore and I had to act quick or I would be seen as weak and not in the right mind.

So I fought with all my might and I realized my worth didn’t depend on where I wasn’t in my life and what I wasn’t doing.

So yea I’m not doing what they say I should be but, I don’t care because I’ve never been in such a better place in my life.

There’s something awakening inside of me right now and I won’t trade it in for what you may be doing in your life.

For my happiness and well-being is more important to me, so back off for my ending will only end in knowing I did what I was supposed to do and if you really cared you support me no matter what.

Daily Prompt: Original

Being original is creating something new for the first time,

Taking all that you have and pouring it into something beautiful.

It all becomes a piece of art that one is passionate about and it all gets viewed

Differently.

Whether that be in a positive or negative way the piece is out there for one to love or one to hate but either way the piece gets attention.

To create original pieces is hard but when one is successfully done its like Christmas morning as a child.

Your so excited to read it and get lost in it and, to read it over and over again until you can’t stop loving it as if it was the first day you laid eyes on it.
