You forgot who you are
You forgot what sets you apart
You forgot what makes you special
You forgot what you've been through
You forgot what prepared you for now
You forgot your victory over pain
You forgot you are chosen
You forgot you are set apart

You traded it for the pain of the world
The standards of the world
The pain of the world
The darkness of the world
The vices of the world
The pleasure of the world

And it made you forget

How amazing you are
How everytime you fall you get up
How determined you are to love
How excited you are to change
How beautiful your soul is
How you exhude life
How you came to do great things
How you are set apart

after 15 years of pretending
she finally found the strength
to be who she was made to be.
leave the mask behind

You think you know
But do we
Truly understand ourselves?
I am having a lot of fun with 10-word poetry and being able to express complex and sometimes painful thoughts with such small verses.

There is a girl who sits and waits,

The one, who has it all.

Her patience is stoic,

Ignored, wronged, misunderstood, and forgiving
she waits.


And when I look inside, shes always there, just waiting to be found...

...waiting to be me.

Days become more like
Sunny-cloudy days.
You come to a sense of awareness
Of everything around.
The way you feel
The way you think
You have finally reach your own headspace.
Sitting in silence allowing your mind to run
Across the field of where you truly want to be
Focusing on what things are instead of for what
Things could be... not everything is what is seems.
Happiness isn’t a destination it’s a journey.
When you learn to let go of things that do not serve
you, you create space for abundance. Allowing
Everything to flow in it’s most natural state.
Still going through a couple of
Obstacles that will cause interference,
we must learn to overcome these
challenges, to let go of the U
You Used to be and become stronger
as we grow.  
Sit back and relax let peace
Wash over your back
Feel the presence of this moment
And let it just be that.

I thought I'd find me
When I touched your soul; sadly
I became obscure


"I'm glad it's you I'm giving my energy to"

My heart pounding on the door of my chest like a bailiff demanding the rent to be paid
No, I say I just can’t
Acknowledge me please, says my love drunk heart
No, I say just can’t
But to ignore me is to ignore yourself, says my grief stricken heart
No, I say I just can’t
Nothing is stronger than my relentless beating, says my powerful heart; I’m waiting when you’re ready
No, I say I just can’t
Love my dear it can and it will
Losing vision on the mountain, sun begins to set
Find us standing at the summit, shaped by silhouette
Search for answers in the wild, or find inner peace
Let what you know begin to flow, spiritual release
As worries numb, answers will come, time is only now
Succumb to senses, drop defenses, find oneself somehow

I stand split between here and there
watching the world as it spins around me.

I once made decisions solely based on you:
On your needs
and wants
and dreams.

Now I no longer move in any direction.
Not because my voice can't echo off tall ceilings,
But because I truly don't care if you can hear me anymore.

Sometimes the stagnant quiet is louder than anything I ever could have said

I live in this own world that I created!
I created my own rules!
Away from the world that I hated!
Living with these narrow minded fools!
There isn't a bed time nor a time to wake up!
It's just things that I make up!
You are who you are here!
No worries no fear!
This world is small but has one open mind!
Place where you find!
Find yourself, Find who you really are!
These place is wierd, but pain is far!
No animal to live, no birds to fly!
No one to say Hi, No one to say bye!
