Oh how

You are always on my mind and always in my heart.

You are my guide through this all.

And lately I haven’t been my best and yet you have stayed by my side.

For you are my God and through it all I truly know I can overcome it all.

Especially when I am a mess and nothing seems to make sense but when I let go.

And wake up the next day you always deliver just what I need.

And for that I am so grateful and I know through the struggles.

You will be there and I accept the hard times because when it’s easy it always feels like something missing.

The struggle make somethings so clear and true.

And for that I am thankful and light right now as nothing holds me back.

I didn’t

Know that when you’re bored that my life then becomes interesting to you.

Questions after questions as if I’ve mentioned I’m not happy.

When I’m fine and you’re the one who seems miserable.

But, I won’t second guess my life and how it’s going because I’m happy and life is good.

New changes and we’ll I feel I made the right choice this time around.

For the long haul and now it’s like you want to turn my life upside so we can be sad together but I won’t go down that dark path again.

For this is the best it’s been for me and I’m not giving up these good times.

Sometimes

Three Line Tales, Week 214

photo by Jorge Flores via Unsplash

the broken pieces inside of us because the art that we see all around and even when you see the pain that someone has released doesn’t mean you know everything about that person.

For the eye may not see everything but it may notice a lot when it is observing its surrounding for the first time but hopefully not the last.

So much to be seen and so much to remember as you take picture after picture with no desire to stop for you are enjoying these type of photo’s.

I never

thought I’d feel this peace day after day.

Yes there are moments where there is a little distraction from that peace.

But all is calm and not much drama and so much help is around.

Sometimes time moves fast and sometimes I wish it would speed up.

But the feeling of not having to rush around feels so good to me.

It’s like finally I caught a break from the stress and worry that has always been apart of my life.

Finally I can lay here and rest and not worry about the unknown.

For whatever happens next I am ready for it no matter what.

No

 Complaints as the life on the other side is greener than before.

I don’t regret leaving because of the risk for the first time is worth it.

Maybe I have become stronger and so the things that used to scare me off from taking that leap.

Is now far from my mind as I make my next move.

And I know that I will be just fine as I make a move that will change me for the better.

I know that things will become more clearer as I learn so much more.

I feel the excitement running through me as the days start to add up and the count down begins.

It’s time to enjoy this moment of rest and know things will turn out as long as I have faith gods plan for me and faith that whatever happens is better than if I planned it myself.

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.

To feel

the sun on my face after such a cold morning.

I just want to forget about today and hope for a better tomorrow

for I know things will be tough and the week will be long and at the end I will want to not come back again.

Things are going so well for me and right now I just hope and wish it will all work out in the end for I am tired of losing sleep over something that is not going to define me at the  end of my day or week.

Something   that has already changed me but not in the way I wanted it too.

At this point only the truth will set me free and today just doesn’t seem like the day where everything will be clear for me .

Happiness

 feels like something of the past sometimes when all that rises from you lately is frustration.

 unanswered questions running through your life as your story comes to a stop.

You still wonder what to do and why didn’t you move before it was too late.

Because you overthink it all because you don’t want to be in the same situation all over again.

But the truth is you don’t have the answers and as you keep praying for them.

You just have to have a little faith because it will all come together on it own I hope.

This place

 So beautiful and peaceful that can’t stop coming back to it.

I know now the ugly things don’t matter when I’m here in this place.

It’s like nothing can touch me even when I know all I want to do is run and scream like I’m in a horror movie.

And of course I will run towards the very people hunting me for they too will play as if they are the victims.

Until they turn on me and then as the light fades from my eyes this place will come to my mind and I will be okay with it being my time to go.

Oh how I wish this place wasn’t just in my dreams but where my reality went to be happy and where my soul could have some peace for once.
