No time

to worry about the stress right now. 

I know that things will get worst before this storm is over and right now only time will tell what will become of this place. 

Times are coming when we have to stop talking our way out of the lies of what we believe is happening but we know is not happening at this point. 

I Know not what will happen but, I can tell you that the tension is building up and right now things are not looking that good. 

And the outcome will be something that will be continued for the ending is something that can change but will it change we will not ever know for the grass right now is probably greener on the other side for it is non-existing on this side. 

For the love has long been gone and so as this place walls crumble down how could we do anything but helpless watch the outcome of this place just be erased from time and space. 

Soon it will be forgotten and the cry for help you once heard will be no more for that cry too will have moved on.

give yourself some time

as everything starts to change.

Maybe this new opportunity will be the new start you were looking for.

For all you want to do is make it and know that the hard work you have done really played off.

You want to feel like you are someone who is helping not someone they are using to get by and make ends meet.

Your patience is being tested right now and you don’t really know what to do with yourself right now.

You are trying so hard to keep your cool and not lose it but I think the bridge is broken and the storm is about to break.

Day and night the anger starts to build up and you don’t know how to quiet down the storm that is brewing in my head.

can’t catch me

You can’t touch me.

You can’t find me when you finally want me

I’m not the one to wait around for you when you decide something is better.

You try to say you were blind to the good things that were right in front of your face

and your eyes are open and you want to see if what was once so good is possible to contain again.

I wish I had the answers for you but, I am long gone and what I had to offer is off the table now for you.

Maybe if you close your eyes you can go back in time and stop from making this mistake but we all know that we can’t go back in time and what is final is final.

I come like a storm coming to find a new place to settle down in.

I will try my best to not ruin the things around me but, I can’t stop what may happen when certain things are out of my control.

I want to break free from the chains holding me to this place that has no answers to my many questions.

Here I am and maybe things will workout for me before the time on the clock sticks midnight tomorrow.

older can be nice sometimes

but then you begin to think of all that you have done.

Being younger can be nice too

But then you begin to think of all the things you have yet to do or can do.

You want to make sure you get as much done as possible because once you get too old you won’t have the energy or the desire anymore.

Being alive makes being younger and older possible but it doesn’t make the outcome feel any better when the struggle is hitting you from both sides.

But, you don’t give up because only you can make the present count and always believe in him even when you are down for God has a plan for you that only he can help deliver you though it.

Don’t give up even when a lot is not going your way for that might just be sign that things will start to look up.
