 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.

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.

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.

Am I

 To wait for you

To realize this could have gone down so much better if you had just stood there and kept your mouth shut.

I thought I had seen it all but here you came showing what ignorance really is and if you thought you won.

Then I know you really are crazy and the one who will judge you and handle you in the end is the strongest person I know.

Because you are a lot and I don’t have time or the patients to put up with the devil today.

I stood in silence while you acted a fool and the shaking was the anger so ready to come out and take you down for you weren’t a man today.

So no I won’t wait for you to get your head out of your ass I will just walk away and let you sit there in your ignorance and we will see who will be begging in the end.

Because I won’t back down anymore I am the brick wall you will not ever get through and in the end you will just give up.

I don’t

 Know if I’m ready for this next step in my life.

But it’s about to happen and the butterflies inside me are so excited and nervous all at the same time.

That I wonder what will happen or become of me.

The time for the day is slowly but approaching and I still have so many questions.

Like where will I go and what time and is this going to be too hard.

Is it going to be better than the experience I am dealing with right now.

And how long before this all I will be doing.

I guess right now I will never know until they get back to me but the count down has started.

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.
