Oh Monday

Here you come again

Not saying I’m not glad to see you.

It’s just I liked sleeping in and not having to set alarm.

Yea I know I still had stuff to do but I didn’t have to worry about being on time.

I know there will be some peace and fun today but can’t I just have one more day off and see you on Tuesday.

Yes I know it doesn’t work that way and so here I come with a slight smile on my face.

But I hope you know I’m watching the clock until it’s my lunch break and then the count down to go home is strong.

Before I

 Step into this place I have to take a deep breathe

And hope nothing bad comes from this visit I’m about to make.

Oh how I wish to do great things here and not for a short amount of time.

I want to do so much and not just to benefit me but everyone that I help out.

I want to feel like I have all I need at the end of my day and in those moments I hope to be happy and 100% complete and not 80% anymore.

 I want to know that this is not it and there is so much more to come of this.

That everything is brighter and hopeful and that everything will be changing for me but that nothing that truly matters will be gone when I look back on this moment.

No

 Complaints as the life on the other side is greener than before.

I don’t regret leaving because of the risk for the first time is worth it.

Maybe I have become stronger and so the things that used to scare me off from taking that leap.

Is now far from my mind as I make my next move.

And I know that I will be just fine as I make a move that will change me for the better.

I know that things will become more clearer as I learn so much more.

I feel the excitement running through me as the days start to add up and the count down begins.

It’s time to enjoy this moment of rest and know things will turn out as long as I have faith gods plan for me and faith that whatever happens is better than if I planned it myself.

In this

moment I feel like I’m fading away from what used to be my past.

As I look into what could be my future right now I’m enlightened and ready.

The peace is welcoming and I am in place where fading away from a place that never felt was right for me is okay.

I’m looking forward to being one of the good ones that will remembered once I’m gone.

But for now I will fade in and of their minds.

Was I

to tired to see your true colors all this time.

You may be small but I can feel the many knifes your trying to throw my way.

No respect just  trying to take and take.

You want so much but right now it’s really just a struggle to get it all down in the end.

Things are becoming more clear as the problems that raise up are not mine anymore.

The peace even within the Storm is better than the storm that just doesn’t go away for good.

No direction and no hope inside for the one who could and should help won’t step up unless they have too and in the end it all comes down to the same results.

You want to complain about the ones who came before you because you think so highly of yourself but at the end of the day we carry you not the other way around.

When the mess hits the fan it is mostly because of you and you then fight back as if you have the right too.

This circle will come to an end and right now I don’t care to watch the show for I know how it ends.

To think

of warmer days and to feel the warm always on me.

So cold outside and inside is making these days very hard.

As I grow cold very quickly and time doesn’t go by as fast as I would like.

I know warmer days are coming and I am really looking forward to so much more.

Today is cold now but soon it will warm up and nothing will be in my way as I begin to explore what this world has to offer me again.

So many

changes are happening around me

and when I make a move so many other people are making it too.

To see a face that is so formal who is on a new journey like I am is so thrilling and good.

I know that there  will be bumps and set backs to come but to go on no matter how hard they push back will not set me back for I know.

Through it all I will see the light at the end of this path for I know this journey will be different than all the ones I have taken before.

I can see that this outcome will be more than I could have imagined  at the end of the day, week, month and  year.

For I trust and believe all things are possible if I just believe and trust that these good things that have happen will not stop now but will continue even when my doubt becomes too strong.

The need

To say what’s on your chest has been eating you up inside and tonight.

You finally said it and now you feel so happy and hopefully.

But you know life will throw a curve ball and all that seemed great may not always be that way.

But that doesn’t stop you for hoping things will change and work out this time.

For there are many combinations to solving and living the good way as there are only few for just living the safe away and tons of going down the path well traveled.

But now it’s time to finally step out and survive because change is necessary to go to the top.

Each door that is open will show you how to just trust your instinct and it will be true out just fine.

To think

 This could become something great once I finally get out of here.

Feels like the impossible but really it’s possible and I’m so happy that it feels just right to celebrate and to breathe.

Because no more dealing with the same stuff or people.

Everything will be new and grand and hopefully something to look forward too everyday not just once in a blue moon.
