A Step Forward - Poem by Connor Whyte

Time goes by unceasingly while the months and years continue to grow uncontrollably, laughter turns into tears, anger turns into fears stopping us from pursuing our dreams clouding our optimism leading us to sheltering ourselves from the opportunities the world has to bring, hiding the gifts we carry to share with ourselves and others who need to see it.

We wallow in our own desolation created from a thought within our own minds, making us our own enemy. This world is sick but at the same time you can find it ravishing if you look past the detrimental parts that cause pain and loathing.

The things we can't control leave us in a stalemate stirring up a feeling of vanquish, it is unpleasant but it's not defeat accept what is beyond our grasp and proceed to follow what you feel is important no one can take that away from you.

The faults we endure in this life make room for improvement and gradually make us stronger and the mind sharper.

I will never settle for less I know what I am worth, I will not lose sleep over the thought of someone's negative opinion as I put my foot down to become a better person as this world continues to worsen. I am no better then you and you are not any better then me, we both suffer and we both grow.

    hi, Connor.
    your words are powerful and inspiring and encouraging, you spoke lots of truths, but i still feel a little shadows behind your words, and truth is a hard apple, whether one is throwing it or catching it.i think appreaciate people's goodness, nature's beauty, life's wonderfulness can help us forget the sufferings of the past and embrace the brightness of the future more easier.
    keep on writing, i will keep on reading, we both suffer and we both grow, together.
