Daily Prompt: Foreign

Sometimes I wonder what’s going on in some people mind because the simple words seem foreign to them. 

And they’re not hard to understand either, so I sit there repeating myself feeling like I’m not speaking English. 

I feel like some brains are being wasted and when the mind is something you are taking for granted then what will the world become. 

You have to slow down and think about things sometimes but, if you are not thinking about anything then the simple things like how may I help you begin to sound foreign to you. 

Life becomes so much harder and that mind that could have been used and put to good use is wasting away in your head and you see nothing wrong with that at this point because you are way past saving at this point.

Daily Prompt: Patience

Everyday my patience is tested and right now I can honesty say someone days I know that I lose and they win.

But, more than likely they lose and the temper comes out and the nasty words come flying out their mouth.

And they try to hit you well you’re not looking for they want to break you and they want you to give them what they want.

But, the truth is you have had a enough and now as the words come pouring out of their mouth you just ignore it until it goes away.

And as  their empty threats are thrown at you, you just want to tell them you just don’t care and they can go stuff all their negative shit where the sun don’t shine.

But, in the end you just stay quiet and you let them walk away and you just move on to the next person who is just waiting to get what they need next.

The cycle repeats its self almost daily and you just have to have patience during the long period of times when you feel like you are being hit from all sides with no end.

You want to crumble and let it just smash you into non-existent but, you realize that you too deserve better and you too are human and just work for the man.

The frustration shouldn’t be pointed at you but, you are present and so you become the victim and the target for whoever wants you to be right now.

So patience is all you can have because in the end, it doesn’t matter how many ways you explain something someone who wants to be right all the time is not going to hear you.

So be the bigger person and act quick because if you don’t end it now it will go on and on until you get sucked up in the mix of crazy.

And trust me this crazy is not the crazy you want a point of now or ever.

Daily Prompt: Patience



I have forgotten all that have been around me when times were rough

as I live in the moments that are good.

But, soon the darkness comes back and I am faced with the truth  did I let all that was good just walk away because I was being ungrateful to them.

Time has gone by and I just don’t know how much time has gone by that I’ve reached out and talked to you.

Life just keeps moving forward and all I want to do is just not be so tired from trying to do more than I am capable of doing.

No moment of rest just filling and filling and yet there is no end to the mess that we are in and the light that shined in at first now is just a spot in the corner.

You begin to wonder how long did I walk around in the dark ignoring the light that was trying to guide me home.

Because I thought I knew what was best for me and the path that I am on just doesn’t feel right anymore or maybe it never did but there was something good on the path so the stress and pain wasn’t so bad.

For that someone was taking all the hits and nothing was getting through to me but now that something is saying it is time to step off the road that is leading you no where good.

It’s time to listen to me and follow me from the hell you are living in and come into the light where nothing bad can touch you unless that thing was meant to show you the way to a better place.

To feel this overwhelming love and peace and to know that someone is always watching your back even when you feel you  have come and delivered.

But, your life purpose is not yet over and it’s time to take a walk down a new path now and I hope you are ready.

can I feel like saying goodbye when I don’t want to say anything at all.

The words that you deserve to hear are all locked up inside of me and no matter how hard I fight to say the things you need to hear.

The words just won’t come and maybe there is something wrong with me but, I seem to have lost my voice.

And so I sit here writing it all out and well I don’t want you to feel like I  taking the coward way out.

But, every time I try to talk to you the words just get stuck in my mouth that I just nod and move on.

Every step I take to give you this letter feels like I’m walking through concrete and soon I will get stuck with no way out.

The solution seems so simple but now it has become so complicated that there just really isn’t enough time to stop and walk away from the mess I’ve made.

So here I go leaving it on your desk as I walk away and I don’t look back but, I hear you tearing it apart and I speed up my steps and then I walk so fast out there door.

I’m running down the stairs as I head to my car trying to get out of this place as fast as I got in it.

trying to be rude but, I just need to tell you the truth right now for I just can’t hold my tongue anymore. 

This is not working out for me and as I smile in your face well I truly die more inside than anything I’ve ever faced in my life. 

You are the bad to my good and I no longer want to be apart of your wrong. 

I feel so strong but, to be truthful I am a mess as I walk through these doors and I come undone because you are my worst nightmare. 

There is not one nice thing I can say about you right now and so I will let you have it all because well that’s just how I am now. 

I don’t have a care in the world that well I’m hurting your feelings but, the pain you have put me through just overrides the kindness in my heart and I just can’t stand to be weak anymore. 

I will be strong and I will stand strong and I won’t back down even if the outcome is not good. 

For I’ve not felt this so alive in over a year now and well I’m done and I just don’t know how to say my goodbye even though I happy that it will end soon. 

The tears that I’ve been holding back well they are flowing down my face faster than I can handle but I know this end is something that had to happen. 

I hope you accept my goodbye and as we both move on, I hope nothing but the best for you. 

But, I won’t be your fool anymore.

time I feel like I’m running out of the energy that keeps me going and I know my limit is coming near.

But, who are I to say something when there is no way out of this for I am forever stuck until I walk away completely.

My sanity will most likely not be still attached when I walk away and somehow I have to accept that because well were all a little crazy at times. 

The way I see people have well already changed and sometimes my reaction is negative when it should be positive.

I don’t want to become what they are rude and impatience, I want to continue showering the world with love and respect with a little bit of my guard up.

For you can’t always trust the people you show your kindness too but you can hope that you changed them just a little bit with a visit from you.

you I just feel like there is no care in the world.

And, I’m grateful that I get these moments when I feel nothing but peace.

The thoughts of anger and sadness just aren’t around when you are so near to me.

I feel like I’m alive again and the things that have been thrown at me just aren’t as big as I thought or felt they were.

With your words and love I am free from the chains that hold me to my sorrow, today the sun shines down and all I think of is that is you warming me with your love.

I don’t doubt you but, sometimes I doubt myself because the pressure is on me now then it was before and I’m trying my best most of the time.

I feel like I’ve lost my mind and become the mad hater and nothing that is coming out my mouth now is making any sense.

I try  to focus but, it’s hard when everything is being thrown at me from so many directions.

I catch somethings and well others I miss and I try to do my best not to overstressed but it all becomes too much at the end of the day.
