Effortless Day

I lit my entire existence on fire today,
cleansed my soul with a bit of laughter
It was an effortless day
I laughed and felt like a kid; it was fun,
Priceless and refreshing
I had to wipe that frown off my face today
I didn’t want to go another day
dragging the world on my shoulders
when it’s not even my cross to bear

Different Is Good

I’m great at being me
and you’re great at being you
That is what’s so special about me
and that is what’s so special about you.
There’s nothing wrong with me
and there’s nothing wrong with you.
I’m different in my own way
and so are you.

Facing The Light

My thoughts are no longer
dark and haunted by my past
as it was so many haunting moons ago

I used to live in a dark room;
there was no light there,
yet I still felt safe enough
And accepted other people’s failures as my own

the ones who could help me didn’t know how,
and the ones who did didn’t try

My emotions fueled my existence
I would wear my heart on my sleeves
Too scared to break free
from other people’s opinions of me
I became their prisoner

The Mess of Bitterness

Your bitterness is a mess,
I’m stressed out
just thinking about how
twisted up things are between us.
I wish things were different,
but you are who you are,
and I am who I am
and I’m going to have to accept
that things are out of my control
for once, I need to trust God’s timing.

Things Are Falling Into Place

Emotions drive people to crazy things
I’ve learned to start giving things
a few days or weeks
before making a decision; these past
few months have been the hardest; it felt
like my entire world was falling apart, but
as time goes by, I can see
everything is beginning to fall into place
the weight of the world is being lifted
off my shoulders now
I can breathe a little easier.
