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: Faint

The voices of the people I thought would stay in my life

for a long time became faint as I walk away that day.

I didn’t remember what they said to me but my heart still feels a little empty

from the piece of me they took that night.

They didn’t even see me walk away or even cared if I had showed up

but the words they said just hit me so hard I felt pieces of my heart fall away and the pain was so much I almost fainted.

But, some how I got the strength to turn around and walk out that door and go to a place that ended up saving me from not recover from that pain.

There had always been someone there for me that didn’t like the other people I hung out with but respected that I like them but, always warned me that one day things would come clear to me.

And the first thing you did that night wasn’t tell me you told me so but, that you would do anything to take this pain away and that trying to get revenge wasn’t worth it for karma always comes back around.

My heart is fully healed now and you are still by my side not only protecting me but the family we built together and maybe one day our kids will have a friend who stands up for them like you did for me that day.

Daily Prompt: Egg

Eggs I love to eat the scrambled

but eggs remind me of when I was a kid

and Easter would come around and you would go out searching for eggs

full of candy or toys and the joy it would bring me.

Now Eggs could mean am I putting all I have into one basket and just hoping it works out or am I allowing myself to try new things and go from there.

I  have to trust that even if I fail and that egg breaks I still have more to give at whatever I want to try my hand out.

My eggs aren’t breaking now but even when they do I’ll clean up the mess and do better next time and know that this isn’t the last thing I will do.

Next time I will go farther and the outcome will be better all I have to do is have a little faith and know I got this before I go in  feeling defeated before the battle has even begun.

Daily Prompt: Neighbors

It’s great to see your neighbor out and about and it’s even nicer when you can have a moment and just chat with them.

And just lost in the many things in life that are going on, you want to be friendly to all but some just dislike you before you even  get them.

Sometimes there are times when you notice the things the people are doing and you beginning to wonder what’s going on with your neighbors.

As the weather changes and winter starts to come in and maybe the snow will come and like every other winter you will all get together and help each other out.

Sometimes having neighbors are nice and other times you just want to be somewhere for your neighbor is a good mile or two away.

But, we can’t all get what we want and sometimes we have to just live with the option you have now and hope later you would have more time to.

100 Word Wednesday: Week 43

Bright lights shine append my first and I stand strong and tall as the show goes on and I’m so glad I got my shades on for it would have been blinding with all the different lights coming on and all as the show goes on.

I see others trying their best to not look directly into the lights as you watch the greatest moment unfold around you. As the fog begins to roll back to the back row.

You finally see everything so clearly and you start to record everything because you don’t want to forget this moment for years from now your life may not be as adventures as it is now in this moment.

Your the Ghost

that haunts me from my past

and no matter how far I go.

Every Halloween you come out and  shake up my life again

like a nightmare that replays over and over every night.

I’m ready for you to go away as I count down the minutes and hours until this day is over and I am free again.

Daily Prompt: Fluff

I need a fluffy blanket as the weather starts to change and it becomes cold

Something to keep me warm when the cold air blows my way.

Fluffy pillows help me sleep so much better at night

Fluffy coats keep me warm on the cold mornings and even colder nights.

Fluffy coats and fluffy scarves keep me warm around my face and head when it colder day by day.
