To Be Continued

I fell in love with you but you didn’t

So that was an opportunity we both lost.

You fell in love with someone,

I got hurt and bruised.

Eventually I moved on and so did you,

But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.

Soon after your new love moved on without you

And we lost touch,

I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing

For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.

Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again

You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.

Our story ends here

Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.

Defeated

Down and lost

You feel like quitting.

I see your pain, though you hide it.

Yet even in moments when everyone lost hope on you

You persevere

Move on

And learn.

Every moment of sadness

You reach for that glimpse of glory.

You are the best when you are defeated

Because it is in those moments, you show that you can still shine.

She Was Man Enough

She held her tongue 

She held her ground

She could have made a lot of noise 

But she chose not to make a sound.
She could have given up

She could have called it quits 

She held on despite being broken

And she picked up the all the tiny bits.
She never surrendered even when she could have

She’s strong,

Stronger than you think

Year

There goes another year,

Like another time,

Another place,

Another lifetime.

We’ve been able to get this far,

And farther we will go still.

The year will soon be new

But same old me and same old you.

Older and hopefully wiser and better and happier.

No plan will work out like you’d want to but go at it anyway

Because before you know it,

Another year would have gone by again.
