Keep On Growing 

Sometimes I wonder why it is so hard to grow spiritually and mentally.  It’d be nice to say I embrace pain but reality is that it hurts so darn bad. And when you know time is really one of the only healers, you wish time would just fly by so you don’t have to feel the pain any longer. At least that’s how I feel most of the time. 

The nice thing about situations like this is that you become so much stronger and wiser and learn about yourself and others. Sometimes you see how much strength you have inside, or don’t. It’s all part of the learning process to build yourself up to be the best you can be. 

Experience is one hell of a teacher. 

To Love

Loving me is no burden

No burden at all.

It’s a gift,

with a bow,

at the top,

Ya know?

Come let me love you

And show you what it truly means.

Love that wants nothing but what’s best

for you.

Then me.

Love is selfless

And it’s pure 

In it,

All things secure. 

Like,

a deep royal purple satin silk

Blowing in the wind.

Refined by the freedom the gusts of it give. 

To love me is no burden,

No burden at all

It’s a gift

From above 

Yes,

That’s what it is 

to love. 

Other People Feel

How you make other people feel about themselves, I’ve decided, says a lot about who you are as a person.  

A blessing and downfall of mine is that I care about other people too much. I want them to be the happiest they can be, but at what cost? I’m known to give my all or not give at all. I’m finding the balance.
