Daily Prompt: Survive

I just want to survive the days and years that seem to hard.

But, I don’t want to survive them just to make it by each day with no life lesson learned.

I want to feel every emotion and live in every moment.

Even when those moments aren’t so great and I just want them to get better.

And they will only in time, so I have to keep surviving to see what more this life can offer me.

I will survive for me and walk slowly through the journey I am on.

For I don’t want to miss seeing the wonders before me.

For when it is time for me to go I want to feel like I conquered more than just a few things.

I want to look back and say I survived it all and God was on that walk with me and without him my chances were slim.

Daily Prompt: Impression

Sometimes first impression don’t workout

and they leave you wishing you hadn’t said or acted that way.

You hope that second chances are given or maybe they forgot that

awkward person was you and move on from the moment.

Or first impressions go so well that you remember how amazing meeting that person

was but you totally forgot their name and you don’t want to make things awkward next time when you can’t say more than hey.

First impressions are something we all care about and something we always have in the back of our mind.

But, soon were just being ourselves and first impressions are no longer an issue as we get to know each other.

Maybe we will remember the moment we first met each other and maybe we won’t but, we will know how we feel about each other now as time has gone by.

The words

are consistently running through my mind and as much as I want them to come out

they won’t.

Just like you won’t reach out and say something to me, the last words we said to each other will be the final last words.

And I would be sad about it but how long can I be sad about something I have no control over.

I’m so tired that I just want the words to come out and for you to hear them and for that to be end of this issue.

But, it’s like I keep talking myself down and so the words just go back inside a lockedĀ space inside my mind until next time.

But, as days go by I fear there will be no next time and maybe we wasted too much time ignoring the things in front of us.

That we didn’t see our time running out and as the days go on a reminder goes off somewhere saying our time has expired and everything left unsaid.

Has no ears to hear and no mouth to be spoken from it’s just gone.

And I feel nothing now and the words locked inside of me just become forgotten and unimportant as I start to more on in life.

Daily Prompt: Catapult

That morning I didn’t expect to be catapulted out of your life.

As you told me off it felt like you had just launched me into the air.

And as I was high above everything, all the memories of our time together played through my head.

And when you were done talking and walked away it all came crashing down.

I felt the weight of your words crash me into nothing.

The person I used to be was gone and who I became next was a stranger to myself.

I was trapped in a body that was no longer me but I had nowhere to go.

And, so I had to accept this new journey I was about to take or I’d waste away into nothing but an empty shell.
