This girl i know, has seen so much
felt so much and loved so much
This girl i know, has had it rough
thought she was tough, until tough wasn’t enough
This girl i know, get’s tired somedays
get’s choked by the pain, almost ran away
This girl i know, has alot to say
when she prays, she asks to remain sane
This girl i know, makes mistakes
sometimes breaks, and is filled with hate
This girl i know, has been disappointed
but she needs to know she is part of the annointed
This girl i know, became a woman
realized all she wants to do she can
This woman i know, is trying to win
Trying to live, despite of everything
This woman i know, has plenty to learn
taking her time, with no concerns
This Woman… I love
I love THIS Woman
Yesterday my mother said , “I just don’t know what you want anymore”
It’s hard to explain to other people how you envision your future, especially when they envision it differently.
My only reply was “that’s alright, because I know what I want”
Sometimes it’s easier to show people than to try explain to them.
Your thoughts, your dreams, your fantasies are your own and really aren’t meant to be clarified to anyone. Those who are willing to understand will open their minds to understand, those who aren’t will be amazed at how right you will eventually be.
I can never be the person everyone else wants me to be
But i can be the person i would be happy to live with for the rest of my life
In the past months i have learnt that you can’t make everyone happy
You can be polite, but you can’t always be nice
The best thing for you may seem like the worst thing to someone else
and sometimes you can’t explain why you need to make a decision, you just know you need to make it.
I know i am not perfect, im not even trying to be perfect, the best thing i can do for myself is surround my life with people who only bring love and joy… people who teach me how to love who i really am. Self Love heals, grows and strengthens <3
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
-For Lethu, forever in my heart <3 R.I.P
