It’s been

Far too long to expect things to just fall into place.

But to think it would be this way is just so unbelievable.

Yet, I push forward in the hopes that things will be better as we move in a new way.

In the

The wall fall glows not like before.

And there on a rock, she sits after taking a drip in the water so cool.

She only comes at night for the sight is so beautiful she can’t seem to resistance getting in.

Until one night the glow was so bright that she slipped and fell.

But to her surprise, the wall solved her and lifted her back to her rock.

For her time to go was not yet and waterfall enjoyed her company.

And knew one day her spirit would stay with it and together they will continue to protect the forest.

They both loved!

Another

Day

Another worry

Another uncertainty

Another moment wasted overthinking about something I can’t control.

Feeling like all want to do is scream and release the anxiety the stress.

The frustration of thinking only time will tell.

But I knew along that it was going to end this way and I really don’t know why I held on for so long.

I feel free as if I had been carrying dead weight around the last couple of years.

And now I can finally stand taller and think clearer too.

It’s not about

The numbers or the time for so much can happen and so little at the same time.

You watch and you wait for someone to make a move that just doesn’t work.

But instead of turning away you embrace this change and make it into something more.

For you know this time may be one of your last chances to get it done and for it to be above average.

And just maybe something great.

To be

floating above the world and all the problems going on in the world to finally having a moment of peace and not worry sure would be nice.

Just taking the time for yourself and not worrying about what time it is and what has to be done at this time.

All you are doing is checking on this and the rest is history and when it’s time to go back down you will know you did all that you could.

Night

Dark

Day bright.

But all I feel and know is fading in front of me.

Like the street night that slowly goes out as the sunrises each morning.

Searching for clues that will solve what you need to know.

May turn out to be great or they may shake-up your life for good.

And once those secrets are our there is no going back to what you thought was the full truth.

Maybe

There is more to how things are going.

Now and maybe things will start to look up again.

So many circles you are running through with no clear sign that things will all work out.

You’re trying to make sense of things and yet you are still running around in the same hopeless circle.

Well feeling so frustrated and no one to answer too.

Maybe the answers will come to you soon only you can hope.

I needed

This moment to appreciate all I have and may get later.

Tired is my body and hungry is my soul.

I crave the words that come from stories and books.

I crave the sound of music and can’t wait to hear the beat.

The words that stay with me forever.

I crave the sleep that I will gain once I lay down in bed.

I appreciate the one that helps me through it all and not just for today.

I know I’m ready to be near him and to know this struggle was worth it for I am worth it.

I know

 Not of what awaits me today.

As it seems there are challenges that keep popping up and yet I seem hopeful.

That I will get through it all even when I know the struggle is far from being over.

My hopes to get ahead or even break even just isn’t in the cards for me.

And so I just face everything for what it is and keep moving through life as if this pace won’t always be how I’m walking on my journey.
