As I

Unknown artist

Float through life lately I feel some pieces of me falling away

Like leaves from a tree when fall has finally arrived.

But that season has yet to come as spring slowly fades away and summer comes in.

From cold to warm to hot everything in my mind seems to go from thawed out to frozen to melting away.

Nothing seems as clear as before all of this and in a way I feel I found my voice again.

No longer sitting around waiting for inspiration but it showing up and taking control.

Maybe this change is what I’ve been waiting for and should embrace it and accept the pieces of me that have been left behind.

Releasing

All that is in me

No matter how good or bad it is.

For I’m tired of holding it in.

And that it is all out in the open I can’t seem to hate it for it’s a beautiful sight.

All the different moments and emotions that make up just who I am.

Is floating around me making a beautiful rainbow of life.

A life that seems to be growing more and more with no end in sight just yet.

At this moment I am truly alive and I’m not holding back anymore for life feels so much more precious now.

I’m not

the light you were looking for because

I destroy and make things more complicated then it has to be.

And here I am fighting no one but my own demons as the world seems to be trying to survive something that is always changing.

We try to stay positive but that can all change each day but in the end of some articles are hope as someone survives the virus and the path seemed so impossible but we know he can do all things and that includes the impossible.

I know this is trying times and there will be darker days than lighter ones but there will be an end for there always is one and when we come out nothing will be the same but we will be smarter and safer in all that we do for we are never alone.

And it’s time to change the way we enjoy things and just realize that the things we thought were in is well out now and being alive and healthy should be enough.

For being bored is just another way to complain about what nothing for others don’t have the chance to be bored for worry is more on their mind and as much as we all wish this was a dream.

It’s a wake up call everyday and night and maybe one day we will realize and know all there is to this moment, this memory that will always be with us and that we lived through something we never imagined could happen to us now or ever.

If only

Time would speed up and I could just get out here.

and just get lost in something for I feel like I need a break.

To early to tell how the day will be but the hope that it will be fine is all I’m looking forward too.

And going back to bed for sleep is calling my name more than work is as I head out the door.

I’m running

Low on fuels and I don’t know what to do.

I try to sleep more and that helps a little.

But now I’m running low again and so eat more things that will keep my energy up.

But I’m so tired and I just don’t know what to do.

I know I’d be a fool if I think I can keep going like this.

But what to do is the question of the hour.

Wake me

Up inside so my day is not just a blur.

So I can see what all is going on around me

For I don’t want to miss a moment in this life.

I’ve grown to enjoy the path I am on right now.

I don’t want to look back at where I’ve been before for now it has been flooded by bad memories.

So to be in this place right now where stress isn’t on my mind and peace is present in every way and form.

Today is going to be an great day since you woke me up this way.

Quote of the day

Just another

day.

Just another moment to realize team work isn’t always the way people go.

Just another one sided relationship that gets you no where quickly.

You begin to see who to watch for.

And who to avoid.

Just another week and yet your already counting down the hours and days until your off.

Because things may have changed but you still want it to be your day off and to enjoy the little bit more of sleep you will get.

With no alarm set and no one disturbing you.

Just sleep that carry’s on into the night.

So just another day isn’t how it really is and you are starting to really appreciate each day and moment for what it is.

I’m

 Hoping this time things will be different because I don’t want to go back.

I know somethings aren’t meant to be but that won’t stop me for trying something else.

My days are long and there are moments of laughter and quiet and it’s a balance I like so much.

I know that I will get it done if I just pay attention to what’s going on around me. 

I see everything shifting and I kinda knew things wouldn’t be the same without me.

And I honestly don’t feel like somethings can be helped at this point.

 For someone will always want to say they did it better or it’s them that saved the day.

I just want to work hard and get everything done and not receive praise for doing my job.
