The Truth

is I’m trying to be okay with the change that is coming but, I too have my limits and lately it’s like I’m at them and yet I still want to keep going and not give up.

But, I’m aching and the relieve that I am looking for its not happening fast enough for me.

So as time goes on I am pretending to be  happy and just completely not thinking about the things  that do make me happy  for I can’t run now, not when things are working out right now.

The present is laying out the path for the future but sometimes the desire to know too much before the time is meant to be does more harm than help.

The results when sweet are nice but when ugly it stings and seems to stay with you forever even though you know what you are capable of now.

Nothing can stand in your way as you make it on that stage and smile because you have come such a long way.

I’ve been running from the things that I have no answer too, just to end up showing the truth and living in that light that you have given us so that we can be equip with the things that we may need when that day comes my lord.

Daily Prompt: Neophyte

At some point in our lives we were newcomers and didn’t know anyone as we learned the basic subjects of school like Math.

You walked in the school hoping that you would be left alone for she wasn’t all that worried about making friends.

Being a newcomer was something she was beginning to get used too and that it was okay to just have no one trying to be fake with her just to get to know all about her like the last school.

She had math first period and so far everyone kept themselves busy with the warm-ups we did the first thing the beginning of class.

So while we solved the problems on the board, He would check to see who did their homework and the one’s that didn’t and will try to turn it in after the warm up.

She wasn’t that good at math but she promised her parents that she would try to do better when it came to her school work.

So she asked for help and hoped for the best when it came down to studying and learning all she needed to know and do this week.

The tutor was a guy who was really good and math and someone the teacher thought would be a good fit for her and she hoped so too for she really wanted to learn math and finally understand it.

Daily Prompt: Disobey

As a child disobeying your parent meant that you would be punished

for you knew what he shouldn’t do.

But, you  do it anyways for the feeling of getting caught was just to great to sit around and be good all the time.

You hoped you would get away with the act but sometimes you get caught and you have to accept the punishment that comes with the crime.

And you learn from your mistakes and maybe try a different way than you did last time and maybe this time you won’t get caught.

I’d like

to say I had a reason for walking  away from you that day

and that reason is the reason I’m so happy as I am today.

I am at peace and I know my worth and my hope is that I am

as strong as I was that day, because I have so much more to face today than I had back then.

The reason wouldn’t matter to you for you saw it as a weakness at the time for walking away from you was like ending a career right when things were getting good.

But, in reality it was more like deciding that money isn’t more important than taking care of myself.

For you can’t be good at what you love to do if your mind and heart are not in the right place.

Daily Prompt: Educate

An education is something we all want

There are things we want to learn even past the years of high school or college.

Each path we take someone educates us on the real world out there that goes beyond math equations.

And complete sentences and everything you can possibly learn while in school.

You want to learn different languages and see new places and just truly be in a place of beauty.

You want to go beyond the walls that taught you something and maybe shaped you into the person you are now.

There was maybe one or two people that believed in you and told you that you could go far and maybe you did or maybe you didn’t.

But, at the end of the day there is a memory or two that you look back at and it gives you hope that you can still learn something new now that can help you go farther in your life.

Daily Prompt: Recite

She stood there in front of the class ready to recite a poem she wrote.

One that was her favorite and she hoped they enjoyed it.

She took a deep breath and stated to read the poem out loud.

she could feel her voice shaking but she continued on.

And once she finished everyone clapped and the teacher asked her some questions then she sat down.

she finally let out a breath as the next person got up and talked about their self.

Maybe

I’ve waited too long but right now this feeling is just floating in the air and the feeling of it is so strong, I fear it will knock me right over.

My fear for this to be gone grows everyday and every night that the words are left unsaid.

I don’t know if I should say something because what if I don’t really mean it and then once said it can’t be taken back.

It’s time to truly let you back in or just let you go and move on with no ties left behind in the end.

For I can’t keep moving forward with a piece of you holding me back at the same time.

In a way I have moved on but the memories of you just seem to stay even though everyone else has already faded from my mind and heart.

Why does it seem the connection I had with you is still holding on when at times I don’t think about you at all.

Like the memories of you only happen during certain seasons of the year and other times it’s like your far from my mind and then it’s like you pop up like an email from an old I didn’t expect to hear from again.
