We all have a life and live in a place

Where people feel the universe is guiding them.

Or some believe and trust in God to guide their life

And is a step away from the evil and sin on this earth.

No matter what we believe or trust we all want everything

To go well in our life and to feel like we can or will do everything

Out little hearts desire.

And maybe we will, for our life is everything to us and the universe exist

In our world.

We all feel someone is our everything and we would do everything in our

Power to help them and hopefully they will do the same for us.

This life we have is precious whether we believe in different things for we

Are all no better than the other.

And in the end we all have decisions to make that will have different results

But were all just trying to live our lives one step at a time.

To be Brave


in a new world

For you just open your eyes

And everything is new to you.

The person holding you for first time

Has such kind and loving eyes.

As they stare down at you, and you have to be brave and stare into those

Eyes and entrust yourself to them for as long as they will have you.

And as time goes on you realize this person is called mommy and mother and maybe

There is a daddy or dad.

And they are in charge but you soon realize you can wrap them around your finger

When you’re young and the first-born or the only child.

And as you grow maybe you begin to want to brave this new world on your own

Even when you’re not ready, just to know you don’t have to be bosses around to

Make it on your own.

But sometimes you can still be brave in new things and,still ask for help from

The hands that always been there to pick you back up when you fall.

My Paradise

Is lost to me

for I never seem to get the time

to relax and think about a place to call my Paradise.

If I had the time I would arrive at my Paradise and the

first thing I would see would be the beach with it nice sand

and, blue clear water from the front of the resort I’d be staying on.

My Paradise  would have free complimentary Alcoholic beverage as you pull up in the

shuttle that picked you up at the airport.

The lobby would be grand and open space  with a large all crystal chandelier hanging

from the ceiling and, the walls would be white & gold with clean white tiles.

A grey rug would lead you up to the receptionists desk  where you key for your room

would be waiting for you, once you checked in.

And your room would be so luxury, that when you open the door the fresh smell with a little hint of mint will greet you as you get settle and sit on your bed for the week or two.

You will be delighted on how soft the bed is and the sheets feel so soft like what you feel the clouds in the sky would feel like.

As you quickly fall asleep from the long day of travel, you can’t wait until tomorrow to feel the sad between you toes and water washing over you as you take a nice swim in the ocean.

And when that joyful moment is over, you can’t wait to explore this island and resort you are on and to be able to forget about your troubles and just for once focus on relaxing and enjoying the time of your life.

The Ocean

is where I want to be and I wish it was just down at  the end of the lane.

For I would go see the ocean every chance I could get.

To stare at the blue water  and to feel the sand between my toes as the water

wash up around me as I enjoy this little piece of silence by myself.

To feel the morning sun on me,to feel the breeze blow through my hair

as if it was the perfect morning to reflect on the things in my life.

To feel the cold water over me as I dive under and come back up knowing

things will be different when I step out the water and face the reality that everything isn’t as calm and relaxing as the ocean is today.

#MayBook Prompt

You were

never where I needed you

never where you were suppose to be.

You don’t ever seem to care that you, were

never where you needed to be.

It never was about if you needed to make

a commitment about being on time.

Maybe the never being where you were needed, was

your stage of telling us all you just wanted to be left alone.

You didn’t want the responsibilities that others had.

The Remaining

moments of my day

is it thought out about all the things I didn’t

get to do today.

Or is it looking back on all the great things I got to

enjoy, and everything else can wait for tomorrow to be done

or explored.

The time that remains in this day I want to treasure it and

put in my box of memories.

I want to be grateful that I still have

remaining time to enjoy with whoever I choose or just with myself.

#MayBook Prompt

They say

who wants to be alone forever.

But you can’t rush the process of life and sometimes, it’s your time to be alone.

And when the right one comes along,you will let him into your heart.

But, right now is not the right time and you know that.

So enjoy your time of learning everything about yourself.

Because there is no timeline for when you need to be with the right one for you.

This isn’t a movie, this is your life so live it for you and trust your gut.

And when you’re not looking or thinking about whose the right person for you.

They will show up and you will know, right in that moment, place that this is who you’ve been waiting for.

The Solitude

That felt like a hundred years had gone by

Since she last talked to anyone or spent time

with them.

She had gotten lost in her books and music and

When she looked up, so much time had gone by

That she couldn’t believe her eyes on the person.

In the mirror, looking back at her was the same girl

Since last month, time away has aged her, and not

In an effective way.

All the solitude she had wanted, hadn’t been what

She needed, and it was time to go back to society and, face

The reality she’s hiding from.
