I am everything
The world revolves around me
This time is mine and I am in control

                                      If its all mine
                                      Why am I so afraid to change it
                                      For the better good of the people
                                      In my world

Why can't I just speak a presentation
In front of my classmates
I want to encourage others to try and change it also

                                 but I am a coward
                                 names courageous

The room where bodies are falling
Falling in love with you
You hate the way you look
Look at yourself why are you
You are beautiful to me

Trying to be strong but
It late can't sleep and
I'm lonely what to do
now with life that's so different of things to
how they used to be
with Helen at my
She was my everything
all that I dreamed of
no other can replace
her for she was my one and only forget all the
rest no more fish In the
sea for me But I'll try
to be
strong to
get along It's not going to
be easy with so memories
fixed In my head so I'll turn memories Into
poems to keep my
dreams alive for my remaining
Making every effort to cope with my lose and turn what's left of life Into a positive find new things to do as I've done with poetry writing encourage others where I can
Day Nov 2018
I think that I am blessed with life.
This morning I woke up warm and safe,
with a kind man next to me to kiss on the face.

I have been granted the ability to work.
I have a welcoming space to earn a living,
with a wonderful boss who is kind and giving.

I still have the privilege to text my mother.
She is a sweet woman with a kind heart -
loves who I am even though our beliefs sometimes part.

But today I woke up and my heart still feels heavy.
I feel unworthy of this body I've been given,
and my mind overworks without my permission.

Depression does not care about my positive days.
Even though I am blessed I struggle with pain,
and constantly still I fight with this dreadful brain.

But day after day I will never give up.
For too many people are counting on me,
and encouraging that one day I shall be free.

So *******, Depression!
Today I woke up and continued to breathe
and while sometimes it's hard I have faith in me.

Don't give up
You're built strong
God gave you a backbone
Just hang on

If no one loves you, I will
You have nothing to atone
I'm here you'll never be alone

Has anyone told you that you're beautiful?
But realize, you were a handful

Don't focus on what's on the outside
That was never the game plan
See what's on the inside
That's how we think man

I am you now
And I saw you then
You never gave up
And and made cool friends

You did well
You stood strong
You were weak
Now you built bonds

Don't give up ever
You didn't then not now and never forever
I picked up writing again. Reading all my old poems made me wanna cry, so I wrote this to console myself
and of

Not **Fear

You can do so much, yet choose to be brittle
When your heart yearns more, instead, you do little
Never fully expanding your soul, to take on great things you know
And the only thing holding you back is yourself
Take a mountain, force it small... it becomes a hill
But unleash the lock to its heart and it beats with will
Looking low while the sky is up in blue
For only seeing what's below
Not what's infront of you.
Raise your head up high everyone! And stop holding yourself back.
