    I Did It To Myself

    Yeah, I got my hopes up. But it's because you made me feel like I could. I thought it was safe. I am not what you want. You don't think I'm ready, I need time for myself....Hmmm I have heard that before..yup about 3 months ago.  If I was...

    What a way to start this year!

    !! It's one blow after another. Although I can take it, there's very little I tolerate to take in. I'm a lover, I'm a mother, I'm a fighter..., but that's all I am. There are times I wish I could have the power to fix it all. But I don't. I wish I could put a bandaid on his...

    I'm Sorry My Sadness Makes You Uncomfortable

    I'm not "fine". I'm not even okay and I'm certainly not good. What's worse is that I haven't felt that I have the right to feel anything less than "okay". I have felt as if I don't have the right to feel sad. I have been shamed for feeling sad. I have been invalidated in such...

    I Just Wanna Be Happy...

    I find myself in a very unfamiliar position.Instead of being the strong one...I'm the weak one. Which would be okay...if it wasn't all the damn time over the past week. I can find a bit of solace for maybe an hour or two...but then the overwhelming feeling of what has transpired...

    The Weight Of Sadness

    I'm sad. Not the sit around feeling sorry for yourself sad. Not the self-pity type of sad. Not the cry-all-the-time sad. Not even the on-the-verge-of-tears sad. Nor the I-forgot-how-to-laugh-and-smile sad It's not the sad that breaks your heart, for there is nothing left to break...

    I just need someone. I need a shoulder to cry on

    and for someone to hug me and tell me things are going to be okay. I need someone to see that I'm not okay. I don't even know anymore things are just getting so bad and I can't help but not want to be here anymore. I have nothing left to lose.

    Mum doesn't want to attend my graduation

    because she doesn't want to see my dad's sister and all. I doubt my aunt would attend, so I guess I'm the only student there who's alone on their special day šŸ˜’šŸ˜’

    I am sad for me. And I am sad for you, too. I am sad that the earth is hurting, and so are her people. I am sad that corporations and government are synonymous. I am sad that millions of people have nothing to eat. I am sad that trees are being cut down every second. I am sad...

    You called me up at 1:30 this morning, so drunk you were repeating yourself over and over.  I love you too.  You can't just "unlove" someone, especially someone you write songs for after fifteen years.  Oh *****, you've had an ankle bracelet on for five...

    A friend of mine just stopped talking to me and our other friend out of nowhere. It's been a few months and I'm accepting that people walk out of our lives but that's their problem, not yours. I can't be sad forever, I have a life to live and I'll meet other people wherever I go...

    I waited for you for so long. I watched my phone, every night, waiting on a phone call that somewhere in the back of my mind I knew Iā€™d never get. I just wanted to hear you say that you were sorry for what you did, and that maybe you wanted to get back together. I hoped and...

    when you know that you're just their second option, or maybe the last option they have. When that person doesn't care about your feelings, doesn't care you're reaching out for theirs. When you have to accept your condition and truth you'll face sooner. I wish my heart...
