You are not afraid of the darkness
But what hides within.

You are not afraid to move on
But to accept the reality of loss.

You are not afraid of heights
But falling from them.

You are not afraid to talk to her
But of her believing you are a fool.

You are not afraid to love
But to not be loved in return.

You are not afraid to speak
But mockery of what might be spoken.

You are not afraid to die
But of ignorance of where the journey ends.

Fear devours rational minds.
Preying on the unknown
Making our imaginations run rampant.

Take heart. Courage dwells within you.

For it takes but thirty seconds to open wide the door to a life of bliss.


Three.

Two.

One.

I can.

You say Black is Dark, I say black is Bright.

You say Black is scaring, I say black is daring.

You say black is bad, I say black is good.

You say black is evil, I say black is civil.

Black is dark, that’s why it makes us bright,

Black is dark that’s why we know the light.

Black is bad because we are sad,

Just be happy and see black is glad.

Black is scaring, because we are fearing,

Just be strong and see black is daring.

Black is evil, because inside us is devil,

Adapt the goodness and see black is civil.

Life is a slope, and then black is the hope

Fight hard and then come to the top.

Black is learning, black is a LESSON,

Absorb the struggle and come with PASSION,

Be black because black is a FASHION.

It's not something you can teach
It's a hunger of wanting more
It burns deep in your soul
Sometimes I want to yell at the top
Of my lungs to release this fire
But here I am hungry but always starving
Never content with what I have

Being very self motivated has some very high highs and some very low lows. At times I feel like the only one that feels this way. Sometimes this disconnected feeling makes me feel crazy when I compare myself to others and their goals.

If to Fear we would succumb,
Nothing then would we become.

Haters going to hate.
Failure might be your fate
But not if you fight
And get it all right.

Listen to that inner voice of yours.
Your Lighthouse.

Nothing ever grows
in
the
comfort zone.

it works,
heal your pain or bring happiness with your old written pieces

Put this in mind "YOUR WICKNESS IS YOUR STRENGTH"
"YOUR DOWNFALL IS YOUR RAISE"
"BELIEVE IN YOURSELF & DONT DEPEND ON YOUR FRIENDS"
"IF YOU WANT TO SEE DEVELOPMENT, BECOME THE FIRST TO CHANGE"
"IF NO ONE LOVES YOU, LOVE NO ONE BUT YOURSELF"
"BE PATIENT WHEN MAKING DECISIONS, BECAUSE IT WILL AFFECT YOUR WHOLE LIFE AHEAD"
"ONE MISTAKE CAN RUIN EVERYTHING"
"STOP SLEEPING AND START BUILDING WHAT YOU WERE DREAMING"
"PRESSURE BUILDS WISE PEOPLE"
"MANY PEOPLE KNOW WHAT'S COMPLEX, BUT FAIL TO DEFINE SOMETHING THAT'S SO SIMPLE"
"WOMEN ARE PRICELESS BUT LADIES HAVE WORTH
MEN ARE PRICELESS BUT GENTLEMEN HAVE WORTH"
"NO DOUBT HELLO POETRY IS HEAVEN ON EARTH"

I feel
Blood boil beneath
The ache, and an absolute
Thunder of a thousand
Frantic, freakish faces
Who have heaved
Up urges unknown,
And though then, they
Would whisper when
The garden'd grown grey,
Tonight, together they
Prick, prod, and power
My more mad
& damned delirious daydreaming:
To soar the sky - sun or shadow,
Fly or fall - Fear
Makes man mean;
And I imagine incredible.

Originally written with magnetic poetry.  Admittedly, two words were changed for the sake of decency and precision.  I'll let you decide which ones.

There is a spark
Deep inside
Hidden away
And if it's found
You will shine

#short   #secret   #deep   #confidence   #inside   #motivation   #talent   #shine   #spark  

When there's a will
there is a way
Don't be confuse
it's all in the brain
No, you're not insane!
just keep going...
your life is at stake.

You ask yourself if it's safe
to go through tomorrow
without having any regret
or sorrow...
we should hope for the best
because if you reap
you will sow
and like a plant
you will grow.

How can we go on?
As the flames burn our confidence
and strip away our happiness
its our job to fight through it!
if the devil took our prize pocessions
shouldn't we make our way to go get them?
And if God says he'll make a way
for all your circumtances
to fade away,
shouldn't we give more chances
than the one's that failed
to keep our promises.

There is no curse or spell
to prevent our way of living
if we live through this
our problems will be less deceving
As we can all tell
because nobody
has to go through
hell.

I'm back from my uneased mind. ;-)
