I will reach
Beyond
The stars

Brining back a
Handful
Of clouds
Sometimes what we want is closer than we ever thought.

You tell me I am strong.
That I am worth fighting for.

If I could only see me through your eyes.

You say the worst is over.
And my past I must ignore.

How I've longed to see me through your eyes
If only we could see ourselves the way others do.

When the midnight sky grows silent
Under the hue of a dim lit star.

Like theives they creep back in
Returning home from afar.

Their siren call reminding me
Of every mistake I've ever made.

My thoughts  overtake my mind
their vicious plan has just been laid.

They steal the away my solace
My torture feeds their fire.

My memories may win tonight
Their force will never tire.
Life with a side of bipolar. Writting is so much better than my meds.

I must walk this path alone, if I am to figure myself out.

To understand the reason for this pain, to rid myself of doubt.

I wander thru this life just searching for a clue.

Truth be told, my heart knows well, my answers died with you
Missing you momma

I don't know how to quiet the thoughts echoing within my temples, filling in the spaces.

The blank stare behind my eyes shows not how my overflowing mind continually
races
Longing for silence

Loneliness creeps in leaving a dark hue covering my soul
I just need to find my way back out.

Rising from the destruction knowing that this girl always survives
I may be down but I will get back up

Why is it when we are at our lowest point...and we are the most lonely inside.


We bottle up our true feelings...and try to keep up the appearance that we can survive.


When we are trapped in our own mind..bound by the darkest of night.

Why are we so blinded..afraid to make the first step toward the light
Constantly questioning myself

This is a poem I wrote and posted in 2013 and it hits homes so very much for me I had to revisit it.


I will not allow anyone' s judgments further even one more moment of self doubt
              They can't break me.
The demoralizing words cast my way mean nothing and the lack of faith,
              Stronger it will make me.

Finally I have realized that I do not have to live up to their set of standards, always trying to impress.
               I alone will break their mold.
No longer will I vie for others affection or seek to achieve someone else's perfection,
                I will let my own story unfold.

My mistakes are unique to just myself, I will embrace them, learn and keep moving on.
                Standing true on my own two feet.
I will have both successes and failures throughout the journey  before me.
                 Never again shall I give into defeat.
I will never surrender

So much more true than the day I wrote this.
