I know somebody

I know somebody
Sitting here in this bar
Someone who will treat you right
Like how you thought no one ever would

I know somebody
Someone who doesn't play those games
The ones that spin your head around
Where no one wins
Where everyone loses

I know somebody who will pick you up,
Who will love you even when you are down
I know somebody
And you're staring into their eyes.

The World is Colorful

The world isn't black or white.
It's everything in between.

Me

I'm not good with change or uncertainty
I'm not good with pressure
I'm not good with dealing with defiance,
When people don't listen to me.
But I'm kind and I'm certain.
I don't always know,
But I know right now what I want.
I persevere, I struggle, I will eventually succeed.
I am not going to be the way you want me to be
I'm just going to be me

Adviceless Advise

She gave me a lot to think about
And yet somehow – at the same time – nothing at all

Ask For It

He gives me the things I don't need.
And I can't ask for the things I do need.
Not until it's too late.
Not until he's gone.
And I'm alone
Just waiting for time to move on

Dare Me

The challenges makes me not strong or week
It pushes me forwards
Dare me.
And I will succeed

Words

I scheduled the post a week in advance.
I don't remember the feelings,
Don't remember what I wanted to say.
But I have this feeling –
This thing I must say.
It's a small lesson of words.
Of the power of words strung together.

Words have power
But only if you let them
Words can hurt
But don't let them hurt forever

Waits for the Wind

She moves without knowing,
Without saying,
She moving without thinking,
Without a guide.
She waits for the wind to take her flying.

Your Mind

Your mind can be your greatest strength
Your greatest weakness
Or your worst prison

Catch Me

I walked on water
And I ran faster than the tide
I returned.
Swept back by a current I could not understand.
I flew.
I fell.
I'm still falling.
Catch me
If you can.
