Things I wish I could say to my younger self.

No I didn’t just turn 30 or any great milestone age and no I also did not wake up suddenly with an epiphany of how to become a millionaire overnight. Over the last few years there are just certain things I wish I had know that would have made my journey in life a little less bumpy. 1442478_31083828

  1. It’s ok to be different, embrace it years from now you will be glad that you did.
  2. Not everyone you meet will like you, but that’s ok because you will also not like everyone you meet.
  3. Love your self inside and out. Don’t worry that they make fun of your nose or your skinny frame it is who you are embrace your uniqueness.
  4. Learn to speak a language. It might seem tedious but it will be an asset in the future.
  5. Learn to play an instrument, one day you will sing for God and it will be of great use to you.
  6. It’s ok to be by yourself now and again, you will later discover that your own company is the best by far.
  7. God never designed you to fall in love with only one person. So don’t be afraid to love again and again and again…..
  8. Some of your loved ones will pass away, but don’t worry they are in a better place. Don’t be selfish let them be free.
  9. If that man wants to walk out of your life, let him leave. You are better off without him anyway.

  17. Don’t lie, not even to yourself. You seriously can’t keep track of them.
  18. Don’t base yourself worth on what people around you think or say. 9 times out of 10 they don’t have a clue what they are talking about.
  19. Pick your battles and learn when it is time to walk away.

The Object of my Obession (Part 1)

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 13.10.03Its dark, I’m running, I’m panting

All I can hear is my heart beat pounding

The silence that envelops me is deafening

Once again I am standing in that spot all alone

My throat is raw from calling out your name

I am tired; I have decided to give it all up

I am hollow, I am hurting, I am sad, I am hopeless

I hug myself to stave off the cold slowly taking hold

I am motionless, emotionless, breathless…

All I need is that final release when I become lifeless.

You stand away from me in the darkness

But I can still see your smile, those lips and their smugness

Will we ever get to stand together in the sun

To enjoy this human experience as it really should be done….

How I Feel!

Words can’t express how I feel,

But you cause a peace in me and that how I feel.

And because of this, I want to share with you what is mine.

Praying for endless moments when I’m with you,

Supporting you in everything you do.

You’re not just my friend and love, but you’re my partner too

Showing you respect in everything you do.
