Everyday Struggle

It blares

It buzzes

It rings

Oh! The sound that tells you to end your sleep.

Why must I part with my bed and pillows?

Oh yes, bills don’t pay on their own, unfortunately

So reluctantly I get up and ‘start the day’

On Deaf Ears

An echo into the void

I am just an echo.

No one sees, no one hears the haunting fears.

I scream!

But it’s all in my head

I am broken

The pieces are too small to put back together.

I’ve held on for as long as I could

But the void, it keeps growing

And this!

Whatever THIS is, it’s harrowing.

I call for help but it seems

It has fallen on deaf ears

And I am left to fend for myself as the void slowly consumes me.

It Must Be

It must be exhausting being you

Always on the spotlight

Never able to hide from the world.

.

It must be awful being you

Not able to decide for yourself, not really

Always being told what to do

Because that is the price you pay in exchange for the fame they give you.

.

It must be cruel in the world you’re living

Because no smile or kindness shows on you

It must be hard to pretend it’s all perfect

When deep down you’re struggling to breathe and break free.

That Simple Life

I take a deep breath and I start again

Today is another day to fill

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like

To have the simple life 

Sometimes I wish for it

Maybe someday soon

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

A Slice 

I want a slice of cake for each struggle

A slice of pie for each sadness

A bit more of both just because I feel like sulking

And prefer to eat more than talking

A slice of cake for happiness

A slice more for craziness

Struggling

Little room for error or even none at all

Very few people would even heed this call

Close to giving up

Maybe I should stop and curl up

But something tells me to push on

 

I’m at the end of my rope

Almost loosing all hope

But it will never be over even if I raise my hands up

It will go on even if I stop

 

So I hold my head high

And I go on and try

No matter how many times I stumble

I remember to always be humble

I carry on despite the struggle

And move forth

The Struggle

I choke in silence for no one hears my plea

Death welcomes me longingly  with open arms

Still the touch of dawn awakens me

 

I surrender the fight for I can no longer bear the weight

Yet something or someone always…..always

puts my feet back on the ground

 

I breathe again, start all over again

But this time hoping to be stronger and better equipped

for the next battle is fast approaching

Your Fall

Cry until it breaks you down

Scream until your soul tires

Hold your breath until you’re blue

Do all this and let it all go

 

Break the chains that bind you

Free your mind from fear and inferiority

Barriers are meant to be blown up to bits

Let your imagination run free

 

Bruises are part of the struggle

Place a bandage and you’re good to go

They will bleed you to death

And take everything from you

My hand is here to help you up

 

A friend indeed is what I am

I will be here to catch your fall

So together we shall rise

Hold Your Breath

in that moment that your fighting with all your might

mustering all your strength and giving it all you’ve got

in that moment, that split second

thoughts flood your mind ; everything is rushing through your veins

faster than the speed of sound

your surroundings becomes a blur

and in that moment you’re about to lose control

but your blood is pumping, heart is raising

adrenaline is over the top

and in the last moments you hold your breath and hold your head high

you’ve won! and it was worth the fight, the struggle

the scars are worth it

for you’ve won the battle

unbolt me
