Joy, Laughter, Confidence, Love, and Peace

The sun dried up all the rain.
Joy defeated the pain. Continue reading “Joy, Laughter, Confidence, Love, and Peace”


A Heavy Heart

She carried a heavy heart.
A heart so heavy it could burst.
It took all she had to drown the hurt.
The pain she felt would not just go away.
It became a part of her.
It would forever run through her veins.
The tears rolled down her face.
She was begging herself to be OK.
Slowly, she tried to pick of the pieces of her broken heart.
Trying not to lose it all.
Trying not to fall apart.
It became a part of her.
She would never drown the hurt.
It would forever run through her veins.

Author of Your Story

They say you write your own story.
I do not believe this.
The beginning of our story is written for us.
My story began before I had any control.
When I was just a kid.
Just like the paper in my story I was ripped, and discarded with every mistake.
Every page is filled with a painful past and memories that no eraser can erase.
Chapter after chapter, someone else was writing my story.
Now that I am grown, the authors have changed.
All the pages written in past are staying there.
No one will ever again have possession of the pen that will write my happy ending.

Depression You Are A Thief

You steal the joy from so many.
All the energy they once knew, is gone.
You take and take.
The hole just gets deeper.
You do not provide a way out for them.
Depression, you are a thief.
You destroy families.
You change a person.
Some try to hide you.
Some can not.
Sadly, you do not just go away.
You take so many lives everyday.
Depression, the day will come.
The day when all those that are battling with you, will over come.
They will rise above you and be themselves again.
You just be another word to them, depression.
Depression, you are a thief.

Her dreams were all around her.
The storms of the world no longer stood in her way.
All the negative words, she could no longer understand.
They all came out as a slur.
She found the absolute beauty in everyday.
No matter how big the struggle at hand.
She was created to conquer.
She would always come out stronger.
Her dreams were all around her.
The storms of the world no longer stood in her way.

It Is One Of Those Days

It is one of those days.

One of those days where she does not want to feel the sun upon her face.

She does not want to smile.

She wants to sit in the dark for a while.

It is one of those days.

One of those days where she is fine with being alone.

She is content with the company of herself.

It is one of those days where the silence is golden.

She is fine with little to no words being spoken.

It is one of those days she is allowed to have.

One of those days to be with herself and bring herself back.


I Love You


I love you.
Not only because of who you are, but because of who we become when we are together.
Not because you always wear a smile, but because you carry a smile even when you don’t want to.
Not because you are always strong, but because you always manage to pick me up when I am weak.
Not because our relationship has always come easy, but because we held on to our love for one another in the darkest times.
Not because you are perfect, but because you are perfect to me.
I love you!
