I know

Sometimes, we’re both right, and sometimes, we’re both wrong.

And it’s not always about being right or wrong

Sometimes, it’s just about being connected again that makes our differences not so challenging to deal with.

Only time will tell how much the trials of life we will go through to find our way on our own.

It’s like everyone else has already pulled away, but you stand by my side like a true friend.

So only time will tell how much longer we have each other back, but I know I won’t be counting down to the end, for life is too short not to take the risk of a friendship that feels true.

Daily Prompts

What’s the best

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Piece of advice I’ve ever received?

Commit to your greatness now! Don’t wait to be happy or wait until you have what you need to be happy about.

This still rings true as everything I still want to do is within my reach and I choose to be happy with the peaceful, stressful life I live for I am blessed now and whatever comes next I know I can handle it.

For the moments of happiness I have now, I can’t get back if I wait for joy to come to me, for nothing in life is granted.

I would rather live a life of no regrets for my opinion of my life is all that matters.


My mind

It is full of thoughts and words, but for who?

And how do I get them out even though the feeling fills me?

I want to spill my guts, but the words aren’t even forming a sentence; just that I need to get it out.

Or the happiness and uncertainty could swallow me whole, and I don’t know what to do it does?

I should wait for God to help me lay it out for that person.

And right now, I feel your arms around me as peace comes over me, and I get ready to relax for the night, for it has been a long day.
