The Night Sky

I may not embrace my fears with open arms
but at least I know them by name.

Life passes by before I can make sense of life's charms
and I know now that nothing can ever be the same. 

Those magical words that I'll never hear echo in my dreams
but even those dreams are suspended in black and white.

All the false promises of the day, nothing is what it seems
and I keep holding my breath for whatever truth is in the Light.

So for tonight I will glance up to the endless night sky
and try to learn a way to make time stop passing me by.

"If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


What will your legacy be? What legacies have you known?

Some leave this temporary home a hero.

This life is about to close and the end is near
But there is an opening, there is nothing to fear.
Can you hear them sing your name,
Can you see the amazing light?
I know you're tired, I know your body is weak
But you don't have anything left here to seek.
Your life has been full!
You have known love, you have known pain
You have seen things that didn't leave you the same.
Do you know that your memories will remain here?
We get to keep those, we will always hold them dear.

Someone up there is waiting for you, you'll see them soon
Tell her we love her when you do.
You can let go now, it's okay.
Your time here is done, there's nothing left to say.

We'll miss you for a lifetime, but our lives are but seconds to you now.

Sometimes life is made of questions and games
Your head is turned in all the wrong ways
Sometimes you feel like all you need is a little change
From the day to day and the same old difficult way

Tired and tested
With all true love invested
Make your stand and say aloud
"You can never keep me down"

If you think back and remember
You've known the love of another
If you can sit in the silence of your thoughts
You'll see what the light has caught 

Hope and love and desire
keep the world going.

Touch and Go but Forever Solid

You know how they say "you don't know what you've got until it's gone"?
I don't want to be that person. I feel like if maybe I soak up life and appreciate the small things and pray for the big then I'll be one of those people that have what they have until they're gone. I'd much rather be that.

It's funny how a memory attaches itself to a place,
a mother's smile made eternal on her daughter's face.
Blue-green eyes an ocean wide,
with a fierce draw like the pull of the tide. 

Souls as different as night and day
but which is which who can say?
Lessons learned and pictures taken
an inner passion soon to awaken.

All these things are deemed so small
but to some, they're the biggest of them all.
Everything good in life I learned from my mother,
she knows me better than any other.

So when there comes a glorious day
I have to stand before my maker and say
what exactly it was that molded me
I can proudly say...
"She told me to be who I wanted to be"

Verses of my life

I decided to follow in my soon-to-be cousin's footsteps and start up a blog!

I'm really excited about it because it allows me a more personal space to compile all my writings or just my day-to-day thoughts without the overwhelming judgments of Facebook.

So I'll be posting anything and everything I can! Prepare yourself world, here I come.
