I float in the wind,
Bask in the glowing sun
And hope to meet the sky
But time becomes reality
And my dreams disappear
But before then you’ll save me
You’ll bring me to the clear
And the future, uncertain
Waits at the corner
With a letter from a lost one
And a message from my fears
Telling me to climb the mountains
The ones I walked around
To feel the air sharpen
As I get higher from the ground
And channel my past
Wait for you there
So you can turn back time
And I can reappear

the walls that protect you
are the same walls that imprison you
yes you're safe...
but safe exactly from what?
Desire Apr 15
There is purpose for your pain,
and progression after perseverance.
You need only to be patient and
keep pushing through the process...

endure | persevere | conquer

"you are more than a conqueror"

I came and
I saw her;
she laughed,
and I was
Like a flower in the dawn of winter

I will blossom.




Tomorrow spring dew will caress the stem that holds me upright  

But tonight          

  I rise.                .

I. struggle
my apologies:
i'm sorry for letting you down
i'm sorry for soundly sleeping upset you
i'm sorry for interrupting your words,
but i'm tired of your manipulation.

II. tension
fishing line:
you take me out of the comforting waters
you make me breathe in the air of toxic
you lure me in with your bait of deception,
but i'm tired of believing your lies.

III. escape
just leave:
thank you for teaching me how to myself respect
thank you for pushing me to become stronger
thank you for orchestrating this circus in my
as the only performer, i've survived.

I'm happy that I overcame social anxiety over time. If you're struggling with any kind of mental illness, please know that I'm here for you.

father says to conquer my fears,
but how can i when losing you is always
at the fault line?

when the earthquake strikes,
the tectonic plates shuffle,
slipping and grinding.

oh father, how can i conquer my fears,
when it's always on the line?

i can't help the thought of losing you,
how can i ever conquer that?

Ripped from this world
By the creators of evil


Risen from the ashes
Alive, reborn into an angel from hell
Soaring above

Carry your scars
with pride, not shame.

What are scars,
but proof you’ve
survived your wounds,
for wounds
carry no scars,
only blood.

What are scars,
but gold stars for
lessons presented
and conquered.

What are scars,
but evidence you’ve
overcome life’s
most difficult obstacles.

What are scars,
but proof of
your success,
leaving you
not broken
but wiser.

Too tired to function
Too awake to sleep
Caught in this limbo
Memories running on repeat

Before The night calls
I hope to break through
All of this darkness
And find my way to you

Daylight is a matter of hours away
And yet I am not not yet where I need to be
So hold me close
And help me to see

Thought all of this darkness
Bring me the light
Only together
Can we conquer the night
Love you bean
