    Not Just Surviving

    Your sweet love has saved me. Brought me back from being the walking dead. You patiently waited as my walls fell. Step by step you came closer, Circling me, watching, testing the waters. First as a friend with kindness and gentleness. You cared how my day was going, Wishing me a...

    All that matter in life is the now.

    This moment right here & now. Not the past, not even the future. Things can only exist in the moment, therefore we can only exist in the moment. & in this moment only, we are alive!

    To the Fullest

    I live my life to the end... Live every second, and make it worth living it.  Regret is a must, but my only regret is the moments I've wasted

    I have this new job and I have a new family.

    So many new events in my life and it makes me feel so alive and well. I may birch and I may not know where all this is going. The ride is just one flow of lights that keep stopping me to take a minute to step back and understand the situations I'm in. I may hate the pauses but...

    I am no danger to myself

    and I could never hurt those around me. I am happy today so everyone please feel better. It's unfair for me to be happy when someone is suffering

    Take the time to break down.

    If it burns then burn it to the ground and remember that the roots are good. I've rebuilt myself from the ashes. I feel good, strong, and powerful the closest I can describe to a whole spirit. I will never stop lifting myself up because I love myself. I am my best friend. So...

    Somehow a Part of This Life

      Somehow, I know.   Eternity is real.  Somehow, I am a part of it.   This life is not all that there is.  To think that it is, would be to claim my own simplicity as the ultimate truth.    To think that I could understand all...

    There are two reasons

    for this. My brother. My sister. That is all. I keep on surviving despite the odds. Recently suicidal thoughts have very nearly been getting the better of me, but the thought of what it would do to my poor younger siblings is what has been preventing me from doing so...

    I used to wake up in this reality,

    hoping things get better. But now I just wait in line, hoping for a change. I'll just do better the next time around. I used to sing these reality, a song of shame and thought it would've gotten better, about now. But now I see is pain caused by my own worlds, apart. But it...

    Eyes closed. Feet numb.

    No breath. No one comes. Speechless and crying. You feel like your dying. But actually, your just living.

    When I was 15, I never

    though I would reach 16. When I turned 16, I thought I would never reach 18. Now that I'm 23, I've begun to withhold my expectations and I'll keep trucking on and surprise myself at each milestone I reach. I aim to be forever grateful once I get old. That would mean that I'm...

    that pass by each day, there's one thing that comes to mind. All that pass by will never cross paths again. It's something how life is so unpredictable but, yet almost seemingly endless of trials.
