Missing you comes in waves,
My feet are just behind the shoreline of moving on,
Some days my feet are dry and parched,
On other days, i am wet with emotions,
All the things i felt, All the things i feel
come reaching for me, beyond the shore.
Some days, i am not strong enough.
Today, i wasn’t strong enough,
I sat in the coffee shop wondering
why the waves were hitting so hard.
Last night, I could feel the waters kissing my toes,
Kissing and reaching, Kissing and reaching for more.
This morning, i woke up dripping, i woke up weak with feelings,
Missing you comes in waves,
Today the waves have hit harder than they ever have,
and i am not strong enough to resist.
I miss you so much; so much.
To my daughters I will say,
Never let anyone use your heart for a waiting room,
Don’t let them come in and sit, and walk around and play,
Not knowing exactly what they want to do with you.
Don’t let him stay, don’t entertain his play,
Don’t let him practice his waltz in and out of your life,
For your heart is not a dance floor; it is a home.
Ask for what you want and if he cannot give it to you,
You walk away.
Don’t spend another minute, hoping he will come around,
Because he won’t.
My body is made up of unwritten poems,
My fingertips are overflowing with words
I cannot yet put together in stanzas.
I am sore from all the things I am yet to express,
I am a collection of ten thousand poems,
A volcano of art waiting to erupt.
You are not a victim.
Never consider yourself a victim.
You are a student,
With so much to learn,
And this life…
And all that comes with it
Is your Teacher.
We are always looking for something …Or someone…
Always waiting for life to happen to us.
Stop waiting and maybe you’ll find what you’ve been looking for.
I’m all about living,
and extending grace to others,
in whatever way you can,
because you never know
whose life you’re saving
by just being Kind.
I’m not too sure.
But i know my heart
at the thought
I am happy.
And no, everything isn’t perfect.
but i am happy and
I also feel lucky to be living this life.
I was chosen for this life
and I know I am strong enough to live it.
In the end,isn’t that all that really matters?
The smallest form of investment
without return will hurt.
It is impossible to put
even little bit of your heart
in something or someone,
and not feel a pang in your chest,
if it fails to thrive.
Don’t believe anyone who says otherwise.
Can i guarantee harvest for your sowing?
No. But i can guarantee two things
there are NO safe investments
and you will grow with every step YOU take.
I stepped out into the coolness of the night,
and i felt the wind kiss my face, softly.
I slowly breathe in the winter air,
as stare at the dark clouds in the horizon.
The few stars twinkling in the sky,
The sound of the wind rushing by,
This oasis of serenity is bliss,
i tell you, nothing could feel more perfect tonight.
If your words aren’t kind,
Don’t throw bricks,
at someone else’s shine,
Everyone is trying
to be their very best,
and that is enough reason
to give respect.
For a moment, I’ll be you
and you’ll be me.
Give me your keys,
so I can see life through your eyes.
Let me see the parts of you,
you’re too afraid to show.
Every crack in your heart,
Every smile in disguise,
Allow me a glimpse into your soul,
and maybe I can learn to love you more.
