A letter

Dear, 
We've been friends since, well forever
And sometimes it feels like 
You understand 
More than anyone else 
So similar, in mind and body
We liked to dream 
Imagine, that maybe we were sisters 
All the memories, adventures
We were joined at the hip
Trouble one and two, sisters at heart 
Sure, we were friends 
But we were so much more
Friends who seem like you in a different form
are one in a million 
You are that one 
Yet it seems I've been replaced 
by a boy who stole your heart 
Tearing you away from me 
leaving a small hole in my heart no else can fill
No, I won't say that I have other amazing friends
 And also, you're not gone only lost 
Blinded by opportunity 
I try tried to understand 
To be someone I'm not 
Just to keep you by my side
I don't think though that I can be any longer

The Small Mundane Things

Sometimes I feel lost 
Lost within my thoughts
Within my mind 
I find myself 
Without words
Without thoughts 
As the world spins 
and I spin with it
As people carry on 
with their lives
As I live unaware of the battles 
other people are silently fighting

My mind is empty of the worries
that plague the young mind 
As the world grows older
And we do too
Sometimes I, we go against
our better judgment as people 
to simply stop,
and enjoy the small mundane things
that make this life worth living

When the world seems to spin to fast
leaving you in its wake
Sometimes it's better to leave your mind empty 
free of all prejudices, and thoughts
For we all have no idea of the battles others are fighting
Sometimes it takes being free of thoughts 
to think of things from a new perspective
that allows you to see
That we are all human

What they see

They see the girl
with the perfect life
who never worries 
never cries
what they don’t see
the girl with who struggles 
who’s pain is invisible
from the surface

She fights to get through each day
as she fades-away 
yet she finds a way to act
Like she’s fine
when really she’s not 
she’s tucked away
in the corners of her mind
thinking only of who she isn’t 
she doesn’t realize
that things could be better 
that everyday doesn’t have to be 
a constant struggle 

Her scars run deep
 she’s afraid of making
the same mistakes 
that have made her who she is

she’s afraid to use her voice to become visible, to be heard
she's distant 
a ghost of the person she was
sometimes she looks back 
to see when life was so simple
and she was so happy 
so free

she says she’s fine 
just tired or blue

Flying

As I soar
high above the ground
leaving a worries
far behind
feeling so light, so free
floating
nothing matters
but the undenible 
sense of freedom
I drift away from reality
as what matters fades
my worries melt away
leaving me careless

Freed from the chains 
that bound me
flying high above 
the darkness
away from what used 
to be
it feels strange 
to be so light
without the fear and dought
that way me down
keeping me from spreading 
my wings and soaring
into the blue

What Lies Ahead


My future is a winding road
where I find suprises
when turning corner
uncertain of what the future holds
split second desisions
deciding the rest of my life
right before my eyes
changing what I knew
turning it into the 
uncertainty of the future 
as I find myself 
where nothing is farmiliar
and everything has
Conseques 
due to the split second desisions
that change my life forever
some bad, some good
all empahasize
what I don't know
and what I lack to find within myself

If

If: Uncertainy and longing
wondering at the impossible 
willing what if to happen
it's a plea, a fact we can't change
a word used for words
If all if's were possible
what a world this would be
after all if is word
what it needs is someone to make
What if a reality
to make the impossible
into the possible
One day at a time
one small step
one giant leap
the start of a
revolution
For change, for hope
to stop if because after all
if is a word with infinte 
Possibility

The Quiet

Quiet, at peace
No thoughts can break the barrier of my mind
I breathe, taking in air
Then breathe out
Letting all worries float away
I am at the mercy of my mind 

My mind is empty of today
and not yet full of tommorow
Tomorrow, thoughts
Worries, joys, and sadness
As I sit in between today and tomorrow

The Battle


Life is a fight
You are the battle weary solider
Struggling to find peace within your own mind
Fighting the raging battle between will and conscience
While at the same time fearing for your life
As the battle wears on

The Darkness

I am alone, not that I'm not used to it. The silence that surrounds me has become natural, almost comforting in a way. It has been almost a month since I've talked to another being face to face, I do miss it . Being alone has changed me, turned me into someone I'm not, I've evolved as the silence over took me. It stayed this way, me alone, lonely, until the day she arrived. From within my darkness, I could hear the rain pounding on the roof above, I could hear the water rushing away down the hill, Then I could hear muffled footsteps finding their way towards the house. Little did I know, that she would change my life forever, She would take away my darkness, and bring the light.
