Another worry

Another uncertainty

Another moment wasted overthinking about something I can’t control.

Feeling like all want to do is scream and release the anxiety the stress.

The frustration of thinking only time will tell.

But I knew along that it was going to end this way and I really don’t know why I held on for so long.

I feel free as if I had been carrying dead weight around the last couple of years.

And now I can finally stand taller and think clearer too.

I can’t

say that I have much to say

now that my mind seems so empty now.

I have nothing left to say and I kind of want to say goodbye.

But the truth is you won’t notice and well it’s just time to go and I hope and pray you continue to live a good life.

But well our time is up and I guess I’ve known for awhile it was going to end but I kept giving you chances but now there is nothing left to give.

May we both survive this storm that is not going away too soon.

For the words we once spoke to each other were nice and now it ends with nothing but the silence of what is to come.

I’m not

the light you were looking for because

I destroy and make things more complicated then it has to be.

And here I am fighting no one but my own demons as the world seems to be trying to survive something that is always changing.

We try to stay positive but that can all change each day but in the end of some articles are hope as someone survives the virus and the path seemed so impossible but we know he can do all things and that includes the impossible.

I know this is trying times and there will be darker days than lighter ones but there will be an end for there always is one and when we come out nothing will be the same but we will be smarter and safer in all that we do for we are never alone.

And it’s time to change the way we enjoy things and just realize that the things we thought were in is well out now and being alive and healthy should be enough.

For being bored is just another way to complain about what nothing for others don’t have the chance to be bored for worry is more on their mind and as much as we all wish this was a dream.

It’s a wake up call everyday and night and maybe one day we will realize and know all there is to this moment, this memory that will always be with us and that we lived through something we never imagined could happen to us now or ever.

Just go

that’s what I want to say

everytime you text me for I know it’s not going to end well.

I know the path that once seemed so full of light is going to

burn so bright and so hot that its going to be too hard to stand too close again.

And when it’s all over and the fire has burned down what you will see is not what you expected and in the end I know it won’t be worth it.

So just go now and make the most of what you have left for if you continue down this path there will be more pain and unanswered questions than you thought were possible before you met me.

there always around

and sometimes they can drive us crazy.

Or make us feel sad just thinking about them.

They can make things so much more complicated and long.

You just want to go to sleep for they don’t seem to bother you when you sleep the night away.

And when you wake up in the morning they then chose to creep right back up in the front row of your daily task.

And no matter how busy you try to be they always pushing things out the way so that you can focus on them and lose the little bit of control you have at the moment.

You don’t

Want to fall short

Even when we’ll you feel like this is everything you ever wanted.

Everything just falls into place and every day just feels how it should always be.

But, you know this is just part of the bigger picture that will come one day.

So it’s best to stay focus and get through it all for it’s not the time to give up.

For it’s time to fight and do what feels right so that the end result is something that satisfies you.

With no regrets.
