Today is the day!
Blustery and beautiful
Everything in bloom
There’s no need to fret
With all the sun and the wet
April, then sweet May
Spring is in the air
On National Haiku Day
Inhale then smile
Luminescent flame; nightly deranged
Sequel in my skin
Where do I begin?
My eyes pierce the glow; heaven unfolds
And just like that
My dreams are here
Like water in the wheel
The vibration consumes me; damp earth, infectious
No one could feel the sting; save for my luminescent heart
That’s just how it goes sometimes…
I got a message the other day
It plainly said they took you away
You told me you were innocent
This was a crime you did not commit
I had frantic hope that this was true
But then I learned the painful truth
There’s so much I wish I could change
Things that I would rearrange
But all we have is the right now
And we’ll make it through this somehow
Remain ever fearless
Uncompromising in your quest
Despite devotion and support from others
Understand that only you can count on you
You are your foundation
You are your blanket
You just are
And you are stunning.
Happy International Women’s Day! Stay true to you and always caress your soul.
Branch out into the dark
Don’t forget your bleeding heart
Blanket the past with deception
Beat back truths with despondent dejection
All that time you wasted then
Plastered inside your plastic grin
Today is tomorrow’s yesterday
What then will you beg to say?
If only, if when, if you, if why
How can you care when you didn’t try
Step back into your simple darkness
You’re gonna feel it regardless
Nothing changes if nothing changes.
You are all you have when it all crashes down.
So, build a reliable foundation.
Sometimes you don’t get that second chance.
Seize the moment.
You can do it.
This is everything I am telling myself since January 1, 2018. I have been through so much up until this point… if I give up now, it was all for naught!
And you can do it, too! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. Use that negativity to fuel your motivation. People who are stuck and failing generally dislike watching people succeed or making progress. Don’t let it deter you from your goal.
Shuck that fear from your bones
So what if you’re all alone
Adjust your sails and press the hell on
Time to sing your own damn song
You deserve the best in life
Even when nothing seems stable or right
Take it by the day, by minute, or each second
Here, it’s your fate that beckons
All that pain you trudged through then
Now consoles you; your best friend
And that’s okay because you win
Each day when you begin again
