Posted in original, self / self esteem


I bleed too

I hurt

I cry

I breakdown

All because of the insecurities I have.

I am self conscious too

I sometimes hate myself too much

I try to be more of myself and less of what others dictate

But I succumb too

I falter

And often

I wonder if I make it out too

All Too Soon

You just came, now you’re going

Away all the way again


We take the long road hoping to delay

the inevitable

Yet we know where it leads


I feel the hunger, the pain shows in my eyes

and it’s about to burst open

cut me through like a knife

The dagger digs deep


We’re here at the junction

sooner than we would hope

Life Moves Way Too Fast

You’re the reason I get up to face each hectic day
How did our lives get so  consumed with nonsense on the way
We used to take the time to laugh and play  a game or two
But now it seems we fight a lot and cry way too much too
So  when you go to sleep at night I’ll slip in by your side
I’ll hold you close  and squeeze you tight and feel amazing pride
You’re the one that I love best,  it’s very clear to see
With every day I know I’m blessed that you’re a part  of me
Now let’s just try to slow it down and savor all that’s past
For  that’s what molds our future, and life moves way too fast
