So Long

Quote of the day:
Fiction reveals truths that reality obscures.
-Jessamyn West

At the far end of the room.
Black colored chairs leaning against white walls.

There you were all alone.
A little red rose growing in concrete.

I longed to touch your petals.
To feel them against my fingers.

To inhale your scent.
And let the smell linger.

Soft and vulnerable.
So detailed yet so beautiful.

I took a few steps your way.
Ready to take you far away.

But alas, someone else came along.
I was too late...all i can say is -so long.

Please Yourself

Quote of the day:
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway
-Eleanor Roosevelt

I feel the scrutiny from those closest to me the most.
And i listen.
...Only when and if i have to.
I sit, hands enclosed and thoughts exposed.

People talk.
They say things when you are not there to defend yourself.
Even people you barely know -but somehow know who you are...will always have something to say or talk about.

How do you react to that? How would you deal with it...

What do you do when life gets too complicated -when pleasing everyone is not an option.
When your business -becomes 'everybody's business'....

I can get used to defending myself...but sometimes i just feel like it's not worth the time.
Not worth the effort. We live...and learn.

Don't try to please everyone...don't be a 'people-pleaser'.
Because people's expectations of you will always be different.

Rise And Fall

Quote of the day:
Thought is free
-William Shakespeare

In the middle of
the night,
And with half of the
World in slumber,
Out of nothingness,
My thoughts...arose.

Without prompting,
It took hold of me,
A battle without end,
I trashed about,
On the bed, pillows
and sheets wrinkled.

And just as i opened my eyes...
My thoughts took flight...
Fading away into the dark night.

New New

Quote of the day:
Sometimes old things need to go away. That way, we have room for the new things that come into our lives
-Randy K. Milholland

Our focus should be the only change we need in order to experience a better outlook as we live day in and day out.

Old things need to go away.....far far away.

Old habits....
Old perspectives...
Old experiences.
Replace them all with new ones.

Hope y'all have a new focus in the new month...and leave behind old things to make room for new ones.

Happy new Month!
Much Love.
