There comes a defining moment when it’s time to let go. Let go all the insanity, the hurt feelings, the worry and pain. Sometimes it hurt so bad that you feel like you will never be whole and able again. You cry, you search for answers but the pieces are still broken. All the warmth and love you once felt has burned with all the memories that you’ve cherished. Som
etimes the strength doesn’t come fast enough and you find yourself longing for them again. So you stay.
The pattern, the problems, the distrust returns and you remember why you wanted to leave in the first place. You’re so afraid of change because you’ve been so comfortable with the familiar. You long for love, you dream of the relationship you want and still your feet won’t move. You somehow convinced yourself that mediocre and settling for less is okay. You trick your mind into thinking that what you want is too selfish or your feelings are not valid. The love you have for them goes deeper than yourself, you share seeds that you want to prosper and grow. You battle your temptations because the grass does look mighty green. You vent to deaf ears and empty minds because you’re scared of what any sensible
person would say. You know they would tell you what you already know. The truth.

Chasing Anger

The anger rages inside me

I feel it boiling up

no matter what other’s tell me

enough is never enough

I see the glares and the side way stares

I almost feel guilty

but when you struggle for so long

sometimes your heart comes up empty

courageous is the title I’m given

whether it rains or shines

I fake a smile and laugh awhile

all the while hurting 

I create my own space and for heaven’s sake 

let that be my bubble to think

let this moment be mine 

so I can unwind 

and release this anger peacefully

never again I say and every night I pray

Don’t let my anger get me

Even though I struggle maybe more than a couple

I take delight in my strength

Once was a weakness

Hurt

Just set me free, unbound the chains
And watch me flee
All the pain you caused, separates my body from my soul
Now in a million pieces, which once were a whole
I feel trapped here, stuck in this room
All I see are four walls and my never ending doom
The windows give me a glimmer of hope
As that is the only light that shines
How long do I have to search? How many mountains I have left to climb?
When and where does the world become mine? Not here, not there, probably a space in nowhere
The truth I speak, my thoughts run deep
No matter what you may seek, I have sought them longer
When does the hurt go away? What will make me stay? When do I become stronger ?
