    Gratitude

    Once upon a starry night, the sky of stars shined so bright.
    Lightyears of distance between each one, there are many abroad just like our sun.
    Many gazed way up high, but some, the old, began to cry.
    The beauty of the cosmos is beyond human description, gazing way up may be one’s prescription.

    Creation in itself, born from our Creator. Born with infinite precision, unreplicable, loved by him.
    From the fish of the sea to the birds of the sky.
    Every microorgansim, every macroorgansim.
    Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics, all is connected without one atom left out. This connection is brought from the one up high.

    Us humans take much for granted.
    Overlooking the beauty and work is all we do.
    Overlooking his grace and his mercy, our maker, our healer, our companion. Love is all he wants from us, for us to love him, others, and all.

    The universe will not last forever, all will come to an end.
    The book of life shall close and the end of the story will commence.
    Until that day, I strive to love, I strive to forgive, I strive to take up my cross, respect all people, to deal with my condition gratefully and out of love.
    Watch that sunset, climb that mountain, walk that beach, and spend time with those you love most.
    Someday, you won’t be able to.

    I Think About You - Unknown #Poem #BrainInjury #Anxiety #Escape

    I think about you way too much.
    At this point your a nuisance in my head.
    Not only do you cause damage,
    But also inconvenience me.

    Sometimes it’s the whole day.
    Sometimes my mind doesn’t even give you thought.

    I remind myself
    This isn’t anything!
    It shouldn’t be anything!

    But yet, you exist!

    You’ve pierced your talons in me
    So deep,
    there is no time limit on the healing process

    A process that repeatedly gets disrupted
    Only to be punctured
    by the same talons
    who tore me in the first place.

    I’ve learned to patch myself up
    wait for your return
    and fight off the vultures who pass by
    The ones that want to see me loose.
    See me break
    See me cry.

    Maybe they think I owe them
    Maybe they feel entitled
    Maybe they’re just bored
    Either way
    there is no stopping their vicious cycle

    They will remain the same
    Because that is their choice
    That is what they thrive off of

    But see,

    That’s also how you will remain
    Because you thrive off of it
    Because you enjoy to disrupt the calm
    Because you enjoy playing the game

    You are okay with revisiting
    You pretend everything is fine
    You act like it’s not a big deal
    And I,

    Well, I allow it
    And continue to pull myself forward
    as if none of it ever happened

    Yet my scars plead otherwise.

    Am I being over emotional? #Bipolar2Disorder #BipolarDepression #BipolarObsessiveness #MentalHealth #MoodDisorder #MightyPoets #Poem

    My boyfriend went back to his city and now I'm alone again.I felt soo. Much sadness that I can't handle it this time. I cried whole night and I wrote this poem for him.

    Everytime I see you walking away,
    Knowing already that you'll come back my way..

    I try to hold that hand of your tighter,
    When I see into your eyes like a fighter...

    My heart is aching, eyes are watery,
    This soul is yours wanna chaseya already..

    Everytime when you say you're gonna leave,
    I feel I won't survive, coz you're air that I breathe...

    I know I'm over missing you, I'm over emotional,
    But, Please Don't Go Before I Get Better emotional
    Please Don't Go Before I Get Better emotional..🥺💙

    To want to love without ever having been loved, and not even knowing what it feels like...

    #SpokenWord poem I wrote. Titled: "You are the Light" For anyone feeling beat up and discouraged in this world.

    Noone ever tells you how hard life really is.

    They fill your head with premeditated worries about neverending bills and jobs you will hate

    They tell you to get used to being tired and forget about the plans that you made

    They say growing up is all about being honest while learning how to be fake.

    They don't tell you about the thoughts you think when you come home at night and throw your hands in the sink

    Washing your hands and face of today's lost dreams,

    You stand crying for a minute because you can't help but think

    while the forbidden tears roll down your cheeks

    About how hard life really is.

    It's more than what they told us. Atleast it is for me.

    Because with the cards that I was dealt i had no choice but to see,

    the dark side of this world before it ever saw me.

    And I can't be the only one that seen.

    There's more to this then what they say

    It's feeling numb but knowing pain

    It's constant guilt and endless shame

    It's dark thoughts on sunny days

    It's feeling lost when you know the way

    It's wanting to speak with no words to say

    It's wanting to forgive but your hearts full of hate

    It's wanting to forget but your minds full of rage

    It's dreaming of being free from a life time of pain

    It's a constant game

    Of you against yourself

    And you against the world

    An invisible war that you can never be prepared for

    Because they can't ever put it into words about how hard life really is

    Because it's losing hope when hopes all you had

    It's one step forward two steps back

    It's getting ahead just to get caught in a trap

    So life can catch you quicker and take all that you have

    Faster than if you had stayed in the back

    Because that's the way life really is

    You've never been ahead, you're just on a different path

    And I'm not being selfish but this is all that I have

    To offer to those who have been caught in this same trap

    Who have been lost and who have been afraid and who have been speechless and been ashamed

    If it means nothing to noone except for you I want you to know

    that it's okay. Just let go

    But they don't tell you THAT that much do they?

    They leave out the fact that you have fought and fought and fought and though you are wounded, you are still standing

    They leave out the fact that you would not have been taught life's greatest lessons without this constant changing

    They forgot to mention that behind every dark corner there is a light that's STILL gleaming,

    Waiting to be noticed to remind you to never stop dreaming

    Never stop believing,

    because even though this world can be deceiving do not believe that your life has no meaning

    Because it does
    .
    You are that light.

    You are the very flickering flame that someone needs

    You are the voice that speaks to a soul in need,

    You are the light

    You are the hand that holds a broken piece to someones heart that's needing peace

    You are the smile that changes a persons day, you are the friendly face that pauses the pain

    You ARE the light

    You are the eyes that see the purpose in others when they can't seem to see

    You are the energy it takes to help them believe that just like you, you have got to believe

    That you ARE the light

    You are the phone call that could save a persons life

    You are the friend that could pull out the knife - in the back of someone who's losing sight

    of life's greatest purpose because they've been too afraid to fight

    The battle against what the world wants us to believe is right

    So if you feel like your losing your purpose I hope to God that you heard this

    Because you are most certainly worth it no matter how bad that you're hurting

    I hope you know your important, I hope you know that you're loved

    I hope you know that you're not alone and that you are always enough

    I hope you know that you're strong, I hope you know that you got this

    I hope you remember all the battles that you won and you fight this

    I hope you stay with me, and that you never forget that you are that light.

    And most importantly I hope you learn to love your life.

    Wondering how do I

    How do I hide the pain from my friends.... without hiding a part of myself.

    How do I hide the pain from my friends....
    without hiding,
    or ending up all by myself.

    How do I show my friends,
    without hurting,
    or pushing them away,
    because I was thinking only about myself,
    or maybe it was just about the pain...
