Before she became fire, she was water
Quenching the thirst of every dying creature
She gave and gave
until she turned from sea to desert
but, instead of dying of the heart, the sadness, the heartache
she took all the pain and from her own ashes
she became fire.
Keep doing YOU, no matter the obstacles.
Like a dumpster filled with things people don’t want
My mind is cluttered
I can’t focus on one thing; my mind starts to wonder.
a dictator of what’s beautiful and true
a malicious invader that makes every encounter blue,
always in disorder, a recorder of everything wrong.
Depression is like a song you hate to sing, dancing to the tune even though you don’t know what the words mean.

I’m ready to enter the world! Is the word ready for me?
Stop and pause for yourself sometimes. Breathe, take in this beautiful life and all its havoc. Your still here, find your purpose, and ride it until the wheels fall off.
It bites at me like a hungry snake
Asking, ” what can I take today?”
your will to survive?
As soon as my feet hit the floor
I’m begging my demon for no more.
“I can’t handle it,” I say
It’s okay; you’re going to take it anyway.
Today I do not fight so I go back to
bed, I’d rather lie dead instead.
I cover my face so you can’t see, it doesn’t
matter because you’re within me.
“One day, I will get rid of you, I say
but not today.

What have you decided? I decided to never give up!
I cant stop and I wont stop! Sharing my vision of hope, sacfrice and love. No matter what life throws at you, keep pushing forward and never give up on yourself. Your story matters!
I’ve come too far for you not to respect
Pages left unturned; happiness passed up because lessons never learned.
I go back to the same mistakes repeatedly, conceitedly thinking it will be different
I come from a bloodline of
warriors, peacekeepers, leaders, and healers.
I will never give up on humanity no matter what it throws at me.
reminds me of what I have
endured, withstood, resisted and survived
to see them is what keeps me Alive.
