So many

changes are happening around me

and when I make a move so many other people are making it too.

To see a face that is so formal who is on a new journey like I am is so thrilling and good.

I know that there  will be bumps and set backs to come but to go on no matter how hard they push back will not set me back for I know.

Through it all I will see the light at the end of this path for I know this journey will be different than all the ones I have taken before.

I can see that this outcome will be more than I could have imagined  at the end of the day, week, month and  year.

For I trust and believe all things are possible if I just believe and trust that these good things that have happen will not stop now but will continue even when my doubt becomes too strong.

Sometimes

in life, you don’t know if your right side up or upside down.

And when you try to find some balance in your life.

Something somehow shifts before your eye and throws you for a curve and before you can get back up they knock you right back down.

And nothing you say or do is working out for you at this point because they chose to knock you down instead of helping you up at the end of your struggle.

You have done so much and right when you choose to move on and do better for yourself they throw you under the bus and expect you to smile and still help out with no worries in sight.

You feel that the pull is becoming too much and you know there is no way you will along this to go on and so you stand your guard and fight the good fight.

Until just come out with what they are planning to do which we all know doesn’t sound like someone who has your back at this point.

A moment

with just you and me before it gets cold again.

Lots of candles were lite and petals on the table.

As we came together in hopes of a good night for our day was probably not so good.

But once together again and nothing matters as all the bad moments fade away even if it’s just for tonight.

Everything is quiet and the peace is all around as we stare into each other eyes and have a great night.

And when it’s all said and done we are all just glad to enjoy each other time and hope that the next night out for us won’t be a long time away.

You always

 Have my back

Together we are able to figure it out.

I know no matter what they say you are doing your best.

I don’t expect much and so how you give so much more every time.

I feel others don’t want to admit sometimes your way work.

They just want to put the blame on someone else.

You are someone I look up too and I hope to make something more of myself.

You give your all and you realize that those who choose to pretend will get no where in the end.

So much

 Going on around us but yet all we do is get lost in our phones.

It’s easier to be focus on what’s happening in our little squares then deal with meeting someone new.

But, maybe it’s easier to have one less person in our life when life seems too complicated.

Staying close isn’t your thing and even if you try to fight your instinct it always wins out.

Quite time alone and everything is peaceful before another round of noise hits your way.

You begin to wonder if just jumping into the noise would be better for you at this point.

I quite

Wish I could escape from this place and that they would forget me.

I know I’m nice and good at what I do but there comes a moment in my life when I just can’t do it anymore.

I feel myself slipping and even as the new year as arrive it is the same things still coming my way.

I may be happy and excited outside of this place but as they keep knocking at my walls of protection.

I feel the slipping down and the so called support for me is no where to be seen at this point.

And so I say forget it and move on for I know it’s not worth complaining about because it’s like talking to a brick wall who can’t seem to help himself at this point.

It’s the

Last day of the year

And I know most of it will be spent doing stuff I rather not do.

But I know I will get through it and enjoy the little bit of time I have left.

The cold is all around and everyone either trying not to get sick or sick.

Hopefully as we all gather together tonight we will look back and know we had some good times together.

And even though the storms there always was a rainbow waiting for us.

This day maybe be the last of one year but tomorrow will be the beginning of another and we will truly enjoy it.

For there will be ups and downs but in the end it will always be worth it.

Yes it

is another day in this place

is it going to be great I doubt it.

But here I stand trying to make things right.

I know that I’m doing what I need to do because I have always put others first.

But as the new year quickly approaches I’m really gonna focus on myself and worry about others later when I have accomplish what I want to accomplish in my life for the time I need to get it done is not guaranteed for me.

I know right now I am here and in this moment I am focusing on what makes me, me and worrying about everything else later.

For a time for rest is now for I’ve been busy lately trying to forget and to get lost in almost everything so I don’t have to face the truth that’s been eating me up inside for quite some time now.

Maybe one day I’ll let it all out but for now only a little at a time will I cry and scream for the release I truly need to be at peace with myself.

Tired of

The lies and the blame you want to put on everyone but yourself.

Because at the end of the day it’s someone else that made you mad and upset.

Someone else that ruined your day or week.

But, once you’ve run them all off

Who and what will you have left?

Because once they leave no one will believe your lies and you will feel alone again with no one to save you the next time around.
