Let’s

Not waste a moment of this time we have together.

Because of the things going on around us, there is not enough time to waste by doing a lot of simple things.

We must act now and worry about the risk and outcomes later.

Life can special you and shock you all at the same time.

Keep your head down but yet do your best to get it done.

For the stress of the unknown is worst than knowing what will happen and still not doing anything about it.

Just another

day to feel like I’m breaking all over again.

The strength I thought I had gained feels like a big wave has crashed into it and I’m left with nothing but wet sand.

The wall my rock seems to be gone and everything just feels like a down high battle.

Nothing shines in this place anymore and alone I stand watching all the things I love wash away from me.

I try to hold on to something but, without the things and people I love what is there left for me now.

Everything gone and destroyed and all that is once so pure and bright is now so dirty and dark.

The light I took for granted is now gone and the darkness that I never wanted to welcome in is now the place I call my home.

Gone are the good days and now the bad days and moments show through every step and move I make.

I am the black cat you avoid on those sunny days that you take a walk outside, you smile and take in nature.

But, the moment you see me you cross the street and walk as fast as you possibly can just to avoid catching the bad luck that follows me around.

Daily Prompt: Ruminate

I had to think carefully when it came to what I wanted in life.

For one simple decision could change everything.

And something’s there’s no going back to and soon it’s all left in the past.

To think deeply about the matter and not get distracted by other things in life.

Is hard but it has to be done sooner than later, if I want to live a certain way.

Daily Prompt: Successful

I want everything I do to be done successfully.

For it to be written out so brilliantly that no one can find one word that is out-of-place.

To feel every emotion that is involved in my writing.

To realize that not everything is as it seems on paper.

That there is still some hope left in this world.

Daily Prompt: Maddening

I ‘m  extremely annoyed with you  when I knew our time was limited.

But, every word that was coming out of your mouth was driving me a little crazy and I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was going to snap at you soon.

So I just walked away and made an excuse that I needed to get some fresh air and would see you later.

The timing was just right as I walked outside the fresh air the bright sky and I could breath again and I knew I could and would be okay when I walked back through that door.

Daily Prompt:Relish

I do relish my time writing and listening to music for

the beat and lyrics of the music always relates to me in a way.

It’s something inside of me comes alive and something just helps the words pour from me or I just get lost in the music.

I’m sure there is a lot of things I relish and every one of them makes me feel a different way.

But what I love the most is some relish on a fully loaded hotdog but then again I do enjoy reading and letting my mind take me to a new place every time I sit done to write.

Poetry

The words filling up a beautiful scene

as you read on.

You wonder how something so great could come from one person.

You want to be in their place or find that creative void to go to and write your masterpiece.

To read because you enjoy it, to read for you have become a fan of their work.

You look forward to the poetry to spring out and make you smile, laugh and just fall in love with a great piece that will stick with you.

Until the next great piece comes along and strings you along.

If Only

I could find a way to the path I’m meant to be on now.

So I didn’t feel so lost on any given day.

To have hope that it will all workout and maybe it does.

But, what is to come up next?

A question no one can answer for me can’t predict tomorrow.

But, we can feel when the decisions we are making feel right even the ones that scary us the most.

Sometimes there is a release of relief that things worked out or at least  the weight of that problem is off my shoulders.

My path has just begun and maybe one day I’ll make it to the end.

The path that is so unknown I can’t imagine what it will be like but, I know I won’t be lost anymore.

Daily Prompt: Hope

I hope for a better day

I hope for a moment I will remember for a life time.

I hope to do things differently.

I hope to make a change that will change me to be a better me.

I hope that hope will inspire me to

write more, dream more and just

risk it all, just to hope that it will

all work out in the end.
