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.


Do You Remember?

Do You Remember?

Do you remember that broken girl who thought she would never amount to anything?

Do you remember those days you were hurting so bad inside?

Do you remember all those days you thought you could not go on?

Do you remember all those nights you cried your self convinced that you were not worthy of love?

Do you remember those years you felt so lost and alone?

Do you remember?

Take a look at her now.

She is going places.

She is strong enough not to be defeated by her pain.

She finds peace and happiness in everyday.

The greatest love she found was the love she has for herself, her children, her family, and her spouse.

She is never alone. She is a mother, a wife, a sister, a aunt, a grand daughter, and a friend.

She Found Her

Staring in the mirror.
Watching her reflection as she passes by glass windows.
Looking through photos and staring into her own eyes.
Trying to find the strong woman inside herself.
The woman that is full of love, life, determination, and strength.
Whispering to the sky.
Trying to find a sign.
She found her.
Not in a mirror.
She was not in the relflection in a glass window.
She did not find her in a photo.
The strong woman she was trying to find was inside her soul.
Inside her heart.
