My Story, My Journal, My Life
The instructor said,
go home and write
a page tonight
and let that page come out of you,
then it will be true.
Skittle colored nail polish is chipping away.
High hopes for an orchestra,
one that plays a beautiful poem,
with each tap on the dusty keys.
The word normal doesnt exist in my mind
as I search for a word to describe myself.
I'm funny: laughter is the ultimate cure.
I'm honest: an act most difficult to prove.
I can look at things and not see them
I can listen to things and not hear them
I can search for love, and never ...
It Will Be Alright
When hope seems to have reached its end
Don’t think the doors are sealed
Just have some faith and trust yourself
Only then, will you be healed
When time is going by too fast
Don’t let sleep feel like a race
Just be patient, take a deep breath
Only then, will you learn to embrace
