it took me forever to realize
that the darkness
is fine

just not
all the time.

As they age,

they grow.

both in strength and in height.

in wisdom and in love,

in spirituality and in truth.

but as they grow externally,

beneath the grass, and the soil,

lay the foundation of the tree,

that sturdy something so powerful.

We are all rooted in different things.

Christ.

Love.

Hate.

Money.

Lust.

Power.

Men are like trees walking.

As we age, we grow.

But what we are rooted in,

that’s what really matters.

don’t bite the hand
that feeds you

or break the heart
that helps you

my demons
go by the names
depression and anxiety,

and

for as long as I can remember,
I chose not to fight them

except today,

I discovered an angel
in my consciousness,
who goes by happy

and for the time being
my demons
do not
control me.
Hello!

In the past 2 hours, I’ve done more for myself than I have in the past year.

It was never as simple as waking up and deciding to be better than the girl who didn’t want to be. It was a lot of tears, and hurt, and a fire so deep inside I might have ignited the kindling of my own self desire to be happy for the first time in forever.

you play me

like I’m your PlayStation

except I’m not a game

my heart can’t be won.

I
don’t
know
when
my
petals
died,
but
I
do
know
that
I
survived

if I had known you looked this heavenly
I wouldn’t have thought twice before selling you my soul.
but I did. May the Power of Christ compel you out of life.

This whole poem (and the ad lib at the end) are a metaphor. Please don’t take the imagery personally.

Lots of love
