Beautiful Mess

A beautiful mess,
that is the sum of my life.
Everything is as it should be.
Though the majority of the time,
it is not enough for my acquired taste…
On the real.
I can’t really complain,
I got it better than most though.
Not to boast, no way,
just recognizing and appreciating my blessings.

A Humbling Reminder

I’m not better than you
and you’re not better than me.
Because of who I am and how I was raised,
I’ve never been one to place myself on a pedestal
and I refuse to flaunt my blessings in your face.
Truth is: you never know
which way the wind might blow.
Just as quickly as things come,
they can be easily taken away,
with absolutely no explanation.
