Ever word is both strong and weak

They can be devastating or uplifting

Always think before you speak

Re-learn to Fly

What if I fall?

Consumed by darkness

Blackest abyss

Unable to fly

Wings clipped

Dreams gone?

Will you still be there?

Be holding my hand

Telling me it’s alright

That even flightless birds

Can be launched

They can re-learn to fly

Identity

Silent voices echo in the distance

They whisper for you –

They whisper your name

Sharing your identity

Immune to the pains,

The perils,

The future disasters.

Rise

Rise above pain and sorrow

Get not only where you should be

But beyond what you were meant to be

I Remember

Do people still remember you?

I still remember you.

I remember making snowmen

And later that snowball fight

I fell down

And you laughed when I cried

Said big kids never cry

We made up quickly and laughed it off.

We were best friends always

It was me and it was you.

I remember playing pretend,

In the back of the bus,

We were giggling so hard,

Carlos, the driver,

Told us to calm it down.

There were board games as we got older,

And then the times we just talked,

About our wants and desires but sometimes about nothing at all.

Time was cruel,

And we moved apart.

I went to college,

But pain and isolation found you.

I didn’t know, wasn’t there,

But if I’d known I would have done anything to help

I remember you and I hope you remember me

I hope not all of your life was hard

That in the end you knew you were loved

That, even if you didn’t want us,

We had been there all along

Outshine

Never prom queen

Never even class clown

A no one

Forgotten,

Left behind

But they followed their dreams

They picked the right path

Outshone everyone

People are better than they are

Better than anyone thinks they can be

Again

It’s there and back again

These problems arise and arise again

Never ending

Always there

There and back

They never mend

Too much

If you try too much

It hurts too much

But not trying hurts more
