The Former
The Latter
aren't the ones that
they're both in the past
and the past is gone
and it's never returning
Don't cling to people from your past
Just leave them behind
Just As They Did

Sometimes you have to make sacrifices and play with the cards you're dealt.

Sometimes you'll get good cards, sometimes you'll get bad ones..

But if you stick it out long enough you'll always get through the round and get a new set of cards dealt to you.

And each time you play them, you learn more and more how to play the game itself.
Don't give up, don't curse hour situation, stick through the storm and you'll end up on the greener side.

The warmth of a mug full of that new coffee,
Keeping you from feeling completely numb.
Hold on.

The embrace of the sun's rays as it wakes from its slumber,
Greeting you with a smile as it wakes the flowers, too.
Hold on.

The touch of a hand settling over yours,
Bringing you back to the present.
Hold on.

The wet nose of your dog brushing up against your arm,
Urging you to take them for a morning stroll.
Hold on.

The familiarity of the sidewalk and texture of the leash,
Inspiring you to look at your surroundings.
Hold on.

The welcoming sight of jessamines,
Enveloping you with a vivid yellow.
Hold on.

The sense of home given by that fragrant stew,
Rewarding you for taking that journey outside.
Hold on.

The threat of never experiencing these again,
Commanding you to burn the rope, put the stool away.
Hold on.

The distinct sound of the gears shifting as you type away,
Writing a poem of perseverance and hope.
Hold on.
Someone once told me, "I realized that I didn't want to die, I just wanted my life as I knew it to end." Please, hold on and don't let go,W.

Hold your shattered pieces together,
Don’t let them go.
Don’t leave your mistakes behind; never forget them for they were there for a reason.
You must rise after every fall, just like a phoenix.
Dust yourself from the sadness and misery you put yourself in,
The fiery flames in your eyes should never dim despite the endless salty floods that strike them.
The confident smile you form should never relax or vanish.
You are strong; you will persist.
You are noticed; you shall resist.
Leave the ashes of the past behind; learn the lesson and just move on …

Stuck in my head
Yet out of my mind
Nothing to do
Held captive by time

A new day
Nothing changed
Will be the same

This love
This hate
Cant be
The only way

Holding on
Letting go
But as usual

im glad u didnt give me anything
because now that u left
i have nothing of u to hold on to

I have looked far and wide
For a place where I could hide
This bleeding broken heart
So I can have a fresh new start

But you hold my hand too tight
We engage in a tugging fight
A war for my liberty
Be free I long to be

Shackled by your embrace
Once made my heart race
Once felt so warm
Now feels so cold

You now have someone
And I'm left with no one
But why keep your grip
If I no longer make your heart flip?

Where is the beauty in death?
I ask,
A figure of light answers
"I have never looked beautiful in your mind,"
"When a cloud of darkness consumes you, you see me as a gruesome way out."
I have never imagined you as something graceful, I answer
"I have only been **** because you want me too quickly."
I shiver at my truth,
It echoes in the depths of my soul,
I did not reply
"I am complicated and painful, but never when one is ready. Never when their clock has stopped ticking on its own."
Why has mine continued,
Why has it felt as if the world cursed me with time?
"I am afraid you'd have to ask life that, you have not given him a lot of attention lately."
I am in between,
I feel stuck,
When will you come for me?
"I will hold you gently when the time comes, I promise you it is not today nor tomorrow."
What if I invite you graciously?
"Do not wish for me, I am not a wonderful savior."
But what do I do with this agony? The agony of living?
"You continue on like the rest, you will be able to, I have seen your clock, it is a strong and lasting one."
Being hopeless is annoying. So here we are. If you are reading this, hold on. I hear it is worth it.
