A Year Ago

(On August 1st, 2019, my prayer from the night before was answered) A year ago I didn’t know the journey I was about to embark on. A year ago I woke up with a completely new mindset. To let go of all the stuff from the past that hurt me. That stuff I always carried…

A Glorious Future No More

This Can’t Be It

You told me your goal and how much it meant, so I prayed for you. The Lord has now answered, and you got it, it’s coming true. While I’m happy and excited for your new journey to begin. My heart isn’t ready to accept our bond coming to an end. This can’t be it. My…

Only For You

What It’s Like

He sees her and approaches her. He asks, “You know that feeling we use to have as kids when we’d wake up on Christmas?” “Yeah. Waking up and running towards the Christmas tree so I could open my presents.” She responds. “Well, I feel the same way every time that I see you.” He says.…

Six Weeks

Six weeks, that’s all that it has been Six weeks, a good mood is what I’ve been in. Good conversations, laughs, and shared smiles, Definitely a time I’ll cherish for quite a while. And though time may pass before we talk again I’d like to believe that those talks made me a friend. Being able…

How You Inspired Me

A beauty that is as mesmerizing as fine art. Always managing to rush the beats of my heart. First, those eyes just can’t be, no way those are true. How in the world can anybody see them and not fall for you? Next, that smile, with the ability to bring up anybody who's feeling down.…

Weathered Metal

Inspired by the songs of Alter Bridge (Metalingus) & Creed (Weathered) I lie awake on a long dark night. I can’t seem to tame my mind. Keep dwelling on what might have been. But can’t let regret waste my life again. I've been defeated and brought down. Dropped to my knees when hope ran out.…
