Karma

When I was trying to be everything you needed, you treated me as if i wasn’t exactly what you wanted. When i fought for what he had you kept telling me i was  nothing but a brat...now that I’m no longer fighting i know you feel the emptiness in your chest, that’s exactly how i felt every time i cried my self to bed.

Wanting to believe
Joan Aug 2018
I really wanted to believe that you were the one for me but something deep within told me that i was a fool for even thinking such thing. I tried so hard to force something that i knew just wouldn’t be, i wanted to believe that you and i were meant to be.

Balance within two streams.
Joan Aug 2018
Iam blissful as much as I am unhappy,
I can give you a taste of both which is what brings me into balance.
I can be slow and gentle just like a bumble bee,
Or I can be as fierce as the fire that slowly destroys everything in its way.
I am confident yet scared to make a move,
Feeling alone is my biggest fear yet being alone is all I desire.
I no longer fear pain because it has brought me strength.  
I love thunderstorms but I can’t live without sunshine.
I love to teach as much as I love to learn.
And in a world filled with so many wrong my daughter was the only right.
Giving a picture of who i am and what has made me who i am.

— The End —
