The mess

is all around me and I realize that I’m not getting enough time to breathe

and so the stress is becoming too much and I just can’t handle it anymore.

I don’t want to go back but I do everyday and there is just always one or two people who cause a scene and it’s like your doing your best.

But you go home and when the calm of the storm has finally around you, you break down because you have had to be so strong all day long and you can’t take it anymore.

You have cracker and nothing is going to help except for going to sleep for all your troubles of the day melt away when you put your head on that pillow and sleep the pain away.

I know

 I’m different and yet funny and nice.

But I’m not so great at being a friend.

Or at least that’s how I feel as the doors of friendship keep shutting on me.

Maybe I withdraw from the world just a little bit too much.

I guess I’m better at disappearing into a book or a movie.

But, I’m so great if you could get past that all for I have a lot to give but shyness is a big part of who I am.

But I don’t let it slow me down for I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in this place of feeling so lost about who I am and what I meant to do.

 I know I pray and that there are few that stuck with me to the end but, maybe sometimes it would be nice to have just a little more support.

 

 But who knows maybe this is how it’s meant to be for just me.

I bet

You thought you were clever today.

But it’s a shame you still don’t see what you’re doing.

It ain’t right but who am I to tell you what to do when everyone else is and yet the story hasn’t changed.

You want to do more and say you are doing the right thing and everyone else is trying to tear you down.

But the thing is we all know the truth and even if we shine some light on it for you.

We will be the bad guys and the cycle of you playing the victim continues on and on.

Until you choose to grow up and take responsibility for the things you did wrong and apologize for not knowing sooner what you had done.

But I know you will not ever change and it will always be someone else fault in the end.

Sometimes it

form-41mNcbpgc-U-unsplash                                                    Photo by Form on Unsplash

takes team work to get  the right pose done right.

with just the right amount of patience anything can be succeed if we just both trust that we are capable of the strength needed to not only pull this off but to hold on a little longer than we intended  to.

Today was a good day not just for me but for you too.

Let’s end this week strong and know that there is always time for us to get it together while still supporting each other through this journey where our live continues to grow and be blessed.

Like debris

you are everywhere but yet not doing much.

You want to boss people around but yet can’t even do what you need to do.

You want to act as if you know it will all work out but stress about things you have no control over.

Nothing is ever good enough for you and that proves so much to me for if you had just a little more faith maybe than life would be so much better for you.

But you blame everyone else as if they are the very reason you are miserable but the truth is you are the one to blame not them but you.

It’s time you do something about your faults and do it quick for you are going to crash and burn and it won’t be pretty.

I can say we were better off without you for the stress was manageable and everyone was doing their jobs and we were a true team.

burnt away

are the days when I felt so strong and able to go on no matter what.

Now the struggle to do what I need to do at the speed that will help me get it done comes and goes.

I feel like I have the ability to do more but the drive to do it isn’t as strong willed as it used to be and the desire to prove myself is just not there.

For I know I can do it but the fact that you try to man hand me get us no where and yet you still think your way will get us far.

But your way is like a burnt leaf nothing good comes from dry leaves unless you need them for a fire in the woods.

I know it will all come down in the end but will you see it coming because you never seem focus or aware of your surroundings.

Let’s make

a wish that November will be better than October and that we will enjoy this month

for the year is truly almost over as December is coming up and then the hope things just keep going up for us is all we want.

Time is running out and we realize that no matter how hard we try we need to move quickly because the time to get it done is running out.

We have to have courage now because it’s time to take those risk and it’s time to just let everything fall to the side if it’s not what we have to get done now because this life is intense now and you don’t want to stress about what if’s when you can do it now.

No more complaining, it’s time to face everything with confidents that it will go in your favor because you have worked hard and sacrificed so much already.

So wish so hard that the only thing you will think about for now on will be that wish which will come true because it’s your time to shine now and forever as long as you believe in yourself again and again.

Its time

 to move forward with my head up high and my feet moving with urgency.

In the hope that things will workout for me.

This week has been long and tiring and so stressful that I just wanted to scream.

I’m so tired I don’t want to get back up as my body aches and my mind says today

Is the day to make the right decision.

As time goes by I realize why did I stay for so long only to be losing more than my mind at this point.

 In the hopes that things will get better I can only pray it will all work out for me.

 But only time will tell if I make it out before it all crash down around me.

The weather

is changing and soon it will be too cold for one to just dip their hand in the river for it will be frozen soon.

And being outside will be no fun but being inside watching as the season changes from fall to winter.

Wondering if I had truly wished for this kind of weather so soon.

Will it be hot again next week or will it stay cold for the rest of this fall.

I will not know until tomorrow and than the next day until one day the weather will just drop completely and you will wake with a sight of a frost and the sight of your breathe in the air and you will just know fall is no more.
