Growing Up Part II


Made some friends in life but those friends went on and made some other friends who they became more close to than me......spent most of my days alone.........during the night time with the lights off always felt like the walls were moving and the roof caving down on me..........times that i felt like I was doing everything wrong in my life and with no one to talk to no one to share with everything that was burning inside me and no one to hold me tight and tell me it was going to be okay.........faced almost every challenge in life by myself......got used to always being and doing everything alone.......realised that happiness is oneself because only you can choose what or who makes you happy..........trusted and believed in myself.........made myself my happiness........held on to my self when all my skies turned grey, when times were hard had myself to count on.......with all those long conversations with my mirror all those times I spent alone counting stars I found the definition of myself and I knew as I know now that I can do anything and everything I set my mind on without depending on anyone because I'm Me! !

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
