Simplify Your Life

Live a good life,
Hold your head high,
Fight the good fight
Things will get better with time
Always with time, hang in there
As you adopt a simpler lifestyle,
Purge your mind
Toss all the artificial flavors and toppings into the garbage
it’s dump

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.

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.

Beautiful Mess

A beautiful mess,
that is the sum of my life.
Everything is as it should be
Though most of the time,
it does not seem to be enough for my acquired taste…
On the real
I can’t complain,
I’ve got it better than most
Not to boast, no way,
I’m humbled

Boobytraped

Saying no
It is never easy but
understand that it’s OK
to say that dreaded word
That’s a lesson I’m still learning.

I’m always quick to say yes to everything
And then end up second-guessing
after caving in to the pressure
that comes with pleasing others
I do what I think is expected of me

Stress Is Painful

Stress is messy; it’s painful. It kills
anyone who stands in its way.
You included. It’s okay for you
to walk away from anything or anyone
who threatens your mental health. Your life
matters too. People don’t have to agree
with your decisions for it to be right.
