Like the rat trying to drink some left over Starbucks drink, I’m just trying to survive and not keep struggling with the same things going on in my life.

I’m just looking for an option that will set me free from the things that I’ve been running from lately.

I am standing on top of all the things that didn’t work out and all the people who tried to tear me down, and I am finally free from the stress and the struggle that has been in my way.

How did

you know that I was worthy of your love, your friendship and your time, when I don’t feel like I deserve all the attention you give me.

I’m just trying to survive in this world and not think too much about a future for I don’t know what will become of me.

I want to do so much but, lately I feel so lost and not sure the place I’m heading to is the right destination for me.

I want to find my way so badly lately but, I just don’t seem to have the strength to explore the many options in front of me.

Daily Prompt: Honk

As a child every time you were on a field trip as the bus drove up next to a truck you would hope that it would honk and if it did you and all the other kids would cheer.

Just those little simple acts would bring joy to our lives but as we grow up we forget about the little things sometimes.

And the honking you here now are when someone is not paying attention to the road when they are driving and you just really don’t want to get hit today.

Or you honk because they are frustrating you and you feel they should be moving a little faster for you because you have somewhere to go and your running a little late.

It’s been so long since we’ve sat down and had a meal together, I made your favorite and I hope you appreciate this time we have together.

I know this moment may not last for long but, I hope it will help bring us closer for it seem like its been so long since we’ve talked more than five to ten minutes.

The look  on your face was priceless and the hug and smile was worth all the energy and time it took to make a good meal for you just for this day if that’s all the time we have for now.

Daily Prompt: Dancing

You danced with so much grace on the stage last night that even though I was dragged to this talent show. 

I couldn’t get over how  amazing it was to see you move the way you did with so much ease and confidence, you didn’t let anything slow you down. 

The raw emotions I saw as you performed every move with so much ease and perfection, it showed how dedicated  you are to your dance and your smile glued me to my seat and I couldn’t look away if I tried. 

You smile gave me hope that one day I could be on the stage with you and all the people I knew were going to go somewhere and this was going to be the dream that they accomplished some how and some way. 

So times I felt so tore about how I could just take the risk of failure and just have a leap of faith that this too could work out for me.

I was lost in the dark and the light guided me home 

to a place that was safe and a place to grow, I became the person I thought I wasn’t capable of being. 

I was feeling alive again and nothing negative could stick to me and for first time in a long time I felt truly free of the darkness inside of me.

I need someone

on days when doing it alone just doesn’t work

When four hands are better than two

When laughter is better shared than echoing off walls and you are all alone.

When all you want is hug and hugging someone else is just what you needed

When dressing up is just more fun when you have someone else to dress up with

When you want to pick on someone there must be someone else that is your target

When you just miss that person and just need to see their face.

When it takes the two of you to cause the trouble you are just dying to cause

When the joke is just funny when you have someone else to hear it too.

I need someone else to continue to pull others into this so there is fewer people alone and more people together laughing so hard that they are crying.

For there to be more love and hugs then arguments and crime.

More peace than violence and a day beginnings good and ends the same way.

I need someone who is brave and willing to play along and take the risk that needs to be taken now with me to be there along the way.
